    GinnyP's Note:

    This recipe came from Allrecipes (Ruth Crickmer). My whole family loved it even though it cooked too fast. The original recipe said 'high heat' on the grill, which my husband did. It ended up cooking 8 minutes total, charred but not burnt tasting, and very juicy and flavorful. We'll turn down the heat next time for texture, but this is a keeper in our home!

      Really very good, and easy to make with things you probably have on hand already (except the lime, in my case). I only marinated the chicken for 40 minutes, because I'd heard that any marinade with lime should be used for 1 hour or less for the sake of texture. The chicken was flavorful, juicy, and tender! Next time I may up the marinating time to 1 hour, but I'll probably max out at that level just because I can. I served it to my husband and 2 year old with oven roasted red potatoes, white corn, and crusty bread. Even the 2 year old liked it! Not overly citrusy or vinegary - just savory and just the right amount of sweet. Delicious! Thanks for posting!

      Mark, I have to admit to ignorance, but I am not sure what coarse grain mustard is so I used regular ole French's mustard. Other than that, followed your ingredient list exactly and blended it all together in my blender because I was too lazy to mince the garlic. This made plenty of marinade for 10 thighs which we grilled outdoors after about 6 hrs. marinating time. You are right! This is a wonderful marinade for chicken. I left the skin on the thighs for grilling because I believe it helps keep the meat moist. The combination of this marinade and grilling gives the chicken a finger-lickin' good flavor! We will be using this recipe often.

      Oh yeah, this is very good. We used it on chicken thighs and it was a big hit. I didn't have cider vinegar so I substituted rice vinegar. Everyone was happy and all the chicken was gone at the end of the picnic. Thanks
