15 oz tomato sauce
2 tsp olive oil
1 T chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 T cider vinegar
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp prepared mustard
3 T finely diced onions
2 T lime juice
1 T mesquite seasoning
6 chicken breasts

Combine all ingredient above (except chicken) to form your marinade. Marinate chicken over night. Turn over after 8 hours and let sit another 5 hours. Separate chicken from marinade and heat up marinade in a saucepan. Baste chicken with the marinade on a hot grill so it sears all the flavors in the chicken. Cook till 168 degrees internal temperature. Should be 6 minutes each side. Always keep basting. For a side dish add fresh Thyme to marinade for grilled vegetables.
