  1. In a large glass bowl, stir together the vinegar, oil, soy sauce, lime juice, lemon juice, sherry, mustard, and honey.
  2. Mix in the garlic, brown sugar, lemon pepper, oregano, rosemary, and salt.
  3. Place the chicken in the mixture.
  4. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.
  5. Preheat the grill for high heat.
  6. Lightly oil the grill grate.
  7. Discard marinade, and place chicken on the grill.
  8. Cook 6 to 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear.

Note 1: Don’t be freaked out by the long list of ingredients, most of them are in your pantry!

Note 2: Cube the breast before you add them to the marinade. Afterwards put them on skewers and grill them.

Note 3: Add about 1 tablespoon of corn starch to the marinade. The marinade thickens up a bit and helps to retain the extra moisture in the chicken. Helps both on the breast or the vcubed version.

  1. Don’t have use of a grill, but may use the corn starch version with veggies in the wok. Worth a shot. Something new. thanks.
