Chef Robert Irvine knows what it takes to keep your taste buds happy. From dealing out much-needed tough love on "Restaurant: Impossible" to his best-selling cookbooks, Irvine has spent the last 25 years discovering—and defining—what good food is.

For his new video series on Bodybuilding.com, he'll stop by every few weeks with a trifecta of flavors for your favorite foods.

This week, Chef Irvine takes a bodybuilding staple, chicken breast, and turns it into three mouth-watering dishes with three distinct flavors. His marinades can be used on nearly any meat; try it on steak, lamb, or pork.

1. Grilled Mustard Chicken

Protein from the chicken combined with 11 grams of protein per cup of mustard makes this dish a muscle-building powerhouse. Throw in some dill and citrus for added flavor.

3. Garlic and Fresh Herb Chicken

Instead of dousing your food in salt and pepper to add flavor, opt for fresh herbs. Pro tip: Use the back of the knife to break the stems of the rosemary and release the herb's natural oils for even more flavor.
