Tonight we marched onward with the chicken and with such nice weather it would have been a crime not to grill out, and grill out we did.¬† My wife scoured the internet and came back with a recipe she started with on Recipe Zaar for ‘Amazing Chicken Marinade’.¬† I don’t know that it was amazing but it was pretty good.¬† After a surprisingly strenuous medicine ball work out, I fired up the grill.¬† Well technically I got the charcoal chimney started.¬† Once the grill and charcoal were ready, I lubed up the rack with a paper towel and some cooking oil, threw a small handful of mesquite chips on the coals and put the chicken on.
1/4¬†c cider vinegar
3¬†tbsp mustard seeds
3¬†cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 lime, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2¬†c brown sugar
1 1/2¬†tsp salt
6¬†tbsp olive oil
ground black pepper
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
Crush 1 tbsp of the mustard in a mortar and pestle.¬† Then 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 fridge 8 hours or overnight.¬† Remove chicken from marinade and grill for about 10 minutes per side over medium high heat.
Even though the recipe wasn’t mine or Vanessa’s for that matter;¬† it was simple and with a little tweaking (mustard seeds over mustard) it was most tasty so I thought I would share it here.¬† Enjoy.
