Baharatli Tavuk – Spicy Grilled Chicken


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (“pure” or extra virgin)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)


Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Set aside.

Mix remaining ingredients together in a medium bowl. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the mixture for basting during cooking. Add chicken to bowl; marinate for 15 minutes, or for enhanced flavor, marinate for up to 1 hour in the refrigerator.

Grill chicken breasts over medium-hot fire for approximately 3-5 minutes on each side until cooked all the way through. Baste with 3 tablespoons of reserved marinade while cooking.
