Sweet and Sour Chicken

Man! This was so good last week for our Sunday meal that I had to share it. The only thing I would do differently next time is marinate it over night. Delicious

2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 T balsamic vinegar
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/3 C light brown sugar
2 T dijon mustard
1/3 C honey
1 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
4 T olive oil
2 whole chicken breasts, cut in half (skinless, boneless)
Italian Parsley

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the garlic, vinegar, lime and lemon juices, brown sugar, mustard, honey, and salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil. Divide the sauce into half. Reserve one half for basting and add the chicken to the other half, turning it to coat it. (this is where I would marinate it over night)
Grill the chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the juices run clear. During the last minute of grilling, baste the chicken with the remaining sauce. Garnish with parsley. Easy as that. Enjoy
