Grilled Lemon-Lime Chicken

I'm linking this post up to DIY day on A Soft Place to Land. I do love Thursdays!


I wanted to share a new recipe we just tried and loved. I found this recipe on Allrecipes. If you've never visited Allrecipes, you are missing a wonderful world of amazing recipes with thousands of reviews. It is my favorite recipe website by far because I love seeing people's reviews, tips, and suggested substitutions for thousands of delicious dishes. The ability to search recipes by ingredients is also important.

This recipe is called "Unbelievable Chicken." While I wouldn't call it quite unbelievable, the chicken did grill up moist and flavorful. I'm always on the lookout for good chicken recipes.


1/4 cup cider vinegar
3 tablespoons prepared coarse-ground mustard
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 lime, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
ground black pepper to taste
6 tablespoons olive oil
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

I didn't have a juicer so I just squeezed the heck out of the lime I bought to get out as much of the juice as possible. I also used bottled lemon juice in place of the fresh lemon juice. And I left out the salt and pepper because I hardly ever add salt to anything.

1. In a large glass bowl, mix the cider vinegar, mustard, garlic, lime juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil. Reserve about 1/4 of the mixture for basting if desired. (I did this.) Place chicken in the mixture. Cover, and marinate 8 hours, or overnight.

2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on the prepared grill, and cook 6 to 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear. Baste with reserved marinade.

3. Eat and enjoy!
