"Unbelievable" Chicken

I didn't name it, but hey, it's good stuff.  This was a recipe I found and tweaked a few years ago when I was looking for new freezer meal recipes.   

"Unbelievable" Chicken

1/4 c. cider vinegar
3 tbsp. Dijon or prepared coarse-ground mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lime, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 c. brown sugar (I have also used a good quirt of honey instead)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
ground black pepper to taste
1/4 c. olive oil
6-8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

In a gallon-sized freezer bag, mix the cider vinegar, mustard, garlic, lime juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, salt, pepper and olive oil. Place chicken in the mixture. Freeze. (To split into 2 smaller meals or make one for tonight and one for the freezer, do 1/2 marinade and 3-4 chicken breasts in each bag.)

To prepare: thaw in fridge. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on the prepared grill, and cook 6 to 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear. Discard marinade.   You can also bake in the oven or cook on a grill pan.
