BBQ Sweet and Sour Chicken

2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Juice of ½ lime
Juice of ½ lemon
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/3 cup honey
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
Chopped Parsley to garnish

In a large shallow bowl, add garlic, lemon and lime juices, sugar, mustard, honey, salt, pepper and vinegar and whisk thoroughly. Add the olive oil and whisk again.

Set two portions of the marinade aside for later. Add the chicken halves to the bowl and coat each side with the marinade.

Heat up the BBQ and grill the chicken pieces for about 4 minutes each side or until no longer pink inside. Baste the chicken pieces with one portion of the reserved marinade occasionally.

Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and serve with the last portion of the marinade as dipping sauce. This is a family favorite.
