Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup Mazola Corn Oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients except chicken to a sealable bag, or a glass or ceramic pan.
  • Whisk to combine or shake in the bag. You’ll have to work a little bit to get the honey incorporated.
  •  Add chicken, seal, or cover dish, and refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
  • Remove chicken from the fridge. Preheat grill to 375 degrees (medium-high heat). The chicken will cook quicker if it has sat at room temperature for about 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Grill chicken until it’s 165 degrees in the thickest part of the chicken, flipping halfway through cooking time. Use an instant-read thermometer for best results.
  • Remove chicken from the grill, cover with foil, let rest for 5 minutes. Juices will redistribute as it rests and keeps the juices inside.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve!
