Citrus Chicken & Marinade

I’ve love this 5 STAR marinade recipe for years and YEARS! I have adapted it to meet my needs, but it tastes still very close to the original.

Plus, I love adding the optional sweet ginger puree. See my Sweet Ginger (Homemade), I have recently updated that post…

4 breast halves, pounded evenly
1/4 cup brown sugar [or Whey Low Gold]

3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp cider vinegar
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard, Country-Style
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp Sweet Ginger (Homemade), (so delightful… add 5 stars!)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Combine ingredients, chill and marinate for about 2-4 hours. Return marinated chicken to room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling*.

Lightly oil grill. Place chicken onto hot grill. Be sure to discard the marinade, do not use to baste [doesn’t need it]. Grill both sides until centers are no longer pin. Remove from heat, cover or tent- foil, and allow to rest for 10 minutes for tender – JUICY, delicious chicken. Serve whole or cut into strips, to serve over salad greens.

*Or marinate meat to PERFECTION in just 15 MINUTES, by using a Quick Marinator and FoodSaver V2244 Vacuum Sealing System.

Note: For *Sweet Ginger (Homemade) – may substitute 2 tsp fresh ginger or 1/4 tsp. ground ginger; the marinade is STILL good but, NOT nearly as AMAZING!
