Best Grilled Chicken!

I have always been disappointed in my poor grilling skills. I'd either burn meat to a crisp or have it so dry and bland that it tasted like chewy cardboard. A couple months ago, though, I came across a marinade recipe that has turned my attempts into success!

It's called Pretty Chicken Marinade and is from allrecipes.com by user TaraNicole:

INGREDIENTS
2/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons liquid smoke flavoring
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

DIRECTIONS
-In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, liquid smoke, mustard, pepper, and garlic powder. Place chicken in the bowl, and coat with the marinade. Cover, and allow chicken to marinate a maximum of 4 hours in the refrigerator.
-Preheat the grill for high heat.
-Oil grill grate. Discard marinade, and place chicken on grate. Cook 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear. (I always check w/a meat thermometer)

I made it again yesterday for boneless pork chops and yumm-O! If you click on the title above it will take you to the recipe on allrecipes.com and you can print it in whatever format you want. Happy Grilling--while there is still time!

Sounds delicious! (At least the chicken does...not the pork chops!)
I found my way to your blog through Jason Franks' blog. :) Have a fantastic day!
