Amazing Grilled Chicken Marinade Recipe - chicken marinated in a mixture of apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, olive oil, lemon and lime juice, and brown sugar. Sweet and tangy in every bite! It is truly amazing. We ate this two nights in a row. Everyone gobbled it up. Leftovers are great chopped up on a salad or in a sandwich wrap. Gluten-free and easily adapted to a low-carb/keto-friendly diet.
Whisk together vinegar, mustard, garlic, lime juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, salt, olive oil and pepper. Pour over chicken and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Remove chicken from marinade. Grill chicken for 8-10 minutes per side, or until done.
You can use this marinade on any cut of chicken – breasts, tenders, thighs, wings, or drumsticks/legs.
You can use boneless or bone-in chicken. Adjust the cooking time to ensure an internal temperature of 165ºF.
I don’t have a grill. Can I cook the chicken in the oven or skillet? Yes! To cook the chicken breasts inside, pan sear it for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes.
One tip on grilling chicken - pound your chicken breasts to an even thickness before marinating. We put the chicken in a ziplock bag and use a flat meat tenderizer to pound out the thick part. Having the chicken at an even thickness will help the chicken cook evenly on the grill.
Is Amazing Grilled Chicken Marinade gluten-free? Yes. All of the ingredients in the marinade are gluten-free.
For a low-carb/keto-friendly recipe, use Truvia or Swerve brown sugar.
