6 pieces




  • In a large non-reactive container, mix the cider vinegar, mustard, garlic, lime juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil. Place chicken in the mixture. Cover, and marinate 8 hours or overnight. (A large zip-top bag works great; just turn the bag over once or twice during marinating.).
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, or preheat your broiler.
  • Lightly oil the grill grate. Discard marinade. Place chicken on the prepared grill or under broiler, and cook 6 to 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear.

    This really good. I was a little concerned that the lime and lemon juice might "cook" the meat through denaturation, but I marinated for 16 hours and while i could see where the "cooking" had started, the end product was super flavorful and not tough at all. I served with mango salsa over rice

    This really is unbelievable chicken. I loved, loved, loved this simple recipe. The marinade flavor really comes through in the finished product. I marinated mine overnight and then threw the chicken on the grill when I got home from work. So easy.

    Oh boy - great chicken! I also boiled down some of the marinade to glaze the chicken while grilling. Loved the sweet and tangy flavor of this - thanks for sharing a great recipe! Made for the Best of 2010 Event (recommended by AZPARZYCH)
    This is really good!! I got this recipe emailed from allrecipes as well and have been saving it for a while. Made as directed, had to broil the chicken because the grill was covered in snow. I kept the marinade and boiled it on the stovetop and reduced it down to a glaze and basted the chicken frequently. Will make again when I can grill it. Made for Healthy Choices Feb 2010.

I lost 160 lbs (though I've gained back about 60 of that since). I can't eat as much as I used to, so I want every bite to be extra good!
