Mustard and tarragon are a classic French combination of flavors. Use this to marinate and baste grilled or roasted chicken, pork, or fish. This is enough marinade for up to 2 pounds of boneless chicken, meat, or fish.


  • ½ cup smooth Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup apple juice or cider
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • cup (or more) chopped fresh tarragon


Whisk all the ingredients together. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
