Amazing Chicken


Amazing...flavorable...tasty...delicious...yummy...moist...juicy...tender...crowd pleaser. People raved over this whenever I serve chicken or pork in this perfect balance of sweetness and spices marinade. The name of the recipe isn't kidding--it really IS unbelievably wonderful! The sweetness of the sugar and the tartness of the lime are match made in heaven. We grill almost every night in the summer using this keeper.

I marinade anywhere from forty-five minutes to three hours. It turns out great either way, each time. I have also used a variety of mustard, vinegar or balsamic vinegar, fresh or powder garlic, lemon or lime--fresh or bottled, end result is same--tastes great. It is worth the extra effort to barbecue the meat in a traditional charcoal grill. The taste is even better this way!

Now...I have to work on a shopping list for ingredients enough to serve 75 people tomorrow night at the Higher Ground's Wednesday Night Community Meal to show our appreciation. I imagine 15 pounds of chicken wings and drumsticks would be sufficient. We'll see. Mind you we will be making sushi, Asian coleslaw, Japanese noodle soup, desserts...a feast for an army!

INGREDIENTS
¼ Cup Cider Vinegar
3T Whole Grain or Regular Mustard of your choice
6 Cloves Garlic, peeled and minced
1 Lime, juiced
½ Lemon, juiced
¼ Cup Brown Sugar (up the amount if you like more sweetness)
1 ½t salt
6T Olive Oil
Ground Black Pepper
6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Half

DIRECTION
In a large, non-reactive container, whisk together ingredients beginning with cider vinegar through salt. Then whisk in olive oil and pepper. Place chicken in the mixture. Cover and marinate chicken in the refrigerator overnight.
Remove chicken from marinade just before you turn on the grill or broiler. Discard marinade.
Lightly oil your grill or broiler pan. Grill or broil about 8 minutes per side in medium heat.

It's 50° at 9 a.m., windy, 50% chance of rain today...now, snowing...so not looking forward to Spring shower!
