Grilled Lemon-Lime Chicken

I can't believe I haven't posted this family favorite recipe yet, and this is BG post #75. You make a simple marinade and let the chicken absorb the flavors all day. I think the original recipe came from a Quick Cooking magazine. A perfect, affordable summer meal! 

              Grilled Lemon-Lime Chicken

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3 tablespoons lemon juice (and zest, if available)
3 tablespoons lime juice (and zest, if available)
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder (California-style preferred)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
4-6 chicken breasts

In a medium-large bowl, mix the eight marinade ingredients together. Marinate and refrigerate the chicken breasts for a minimum of four hours or up to twelve hours. Grill the chicken until thoroughly cooked.
