Sweet & Tangy Grilled Chicken


This chicken was SO good. I found the recipe on Pinterest and had to give it a try. The ingredients are a very unusual combination. It contains cider vinegar and brown sugar. I wasn't sure how it was going to taste. Well, it was unbelievably delicious! I think the vinegar mellows out the brown sugar. It definitely has a twinge of sweetness though. We have made this twice and plan on making it again very soon. We like to grill extra chicken and eat it for lunch. Give this a try ASAP!

  1. Totally trying it. I love a marinade that doesn't require me to purchase anything!

  4. I have read in a couple of blogs that if you use lime juice in the recipe with chicken, that you should not marinate it for long...especially not over night because it becomes mushy. Are you familiar with these comments?

  5. Tammy - that is true, but there isn't enough citrus juice in this marinate to break down the chicken. I had no issues.

  8. Sorry, messed up the last comment:/
    I tried this for dinner tonight. Oh my goodness! It's delicious!! I only had about an hour to marinade, so I can just imagine how much better it would be the longer it marinates. Thanks for the great recipe:)

  10. I made this for dinner tonight. My son - the world's pickiest eater - loved it so it's definitely a keeper! I basically halved the marinade and used 3 breasts. Really yummy! Definitely something I'll make often. One note - I made it inside on the grill pan and found that it carmelized up almost too quickly on the first side. I'll try to keep my heat a little lower next time. This was very juicy and quite tasty.
