Best Grilled Chicken Marinade


Simply the best basic chicken marinade out there!  Be sure to reserve at least 1/4 cup to pour over the cooked chicken.



  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl except the olive oil.
  2. Drizzle in the oil very slowly while whisking very quickly until emulsified.  Reserve 1/4 cup.
  3. Put the chicken in a large Ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the chicken.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  4. Let the chicken rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  5. Grill chicken over med/high heat turning over when the chicken looks 3/4 of the way cooked through to get nice grill marks.  Flip and cook until juices run clear.
  6. Pour remaining marinade on top before serving.
