If chicken breast is among your favorite go-tos for a tasty and reliable protein fix, you'll want to add this dish to your muscle-building arsenal. This version gets its kick from tangy apple cider vinegar and spicy mustard paired with just a little bit of brown sugar and ketchup. 

Tangy Barbecue Chicken Servings: 4
You'll need
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium ketchup
  • 4 chicken breasts
1. Preheat grill. Place all ingredients except chicken in a sauce pan. Heat over medium flame, cooking until contents are reduced by 50%.
2. Spread barbecue sauce on chicken breasts and place on grill. (Sauce can also be cooled for later use.)
3. Grill breasts 4-5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink inside.
