The summer is all about grilling and I am always on the look out for delicious marinades, especially for chicken breast.  In the past, I often made a simple marinade with mustard, lemon juice, spices, and honey but I wanted to create a sugar free version with a little more zest.  To do that I opted for lime juice, whole grain musatrd, garlic, cilantro, and paprika.  You could also add some chili powder or red pepper flakes if you like things spicy.  Marinating the chicken in the citrus juice ensures it will stay nice and tender on the grill and packs it with flavor.  Make up a double or triple batch and use leftovers over greens or paired with greek yogurt for a zingy chicken salad.
