Sweet-tart balsamic vinegar spiked with garlic and Italian seasoning makes a fast and flavorful marinade for chicken. Serve with sliced tomatoes and grilled eggplant slices.

  • Makes: 4 servings
    Serving Size: N/A
  • Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes

Recipe Ingredients:

• ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
• ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
• 1 teaspoon salt
• ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• 1–1¼ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast

Recipe Steps:

1. Whisk oil, vinegar, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a bowl until well combined.

2. Place chicken in a shallow dish or 1-gallon sealable plastic bag. Add the marinade and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours. Remove from the marinade and pat dry.

3. Preheat grill to medium-high or position a rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler to high.

4. To grill: Oil the grill rack. Grill the chicken, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 8 minutes per side.

5. To broil: Line a broiler pan (or baking sheet) with foil and coat with cooking spray. Place the chicken on the foil. Broil, watching carefully and turning at least once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 10 to 15 minutes total.

Tips

Make Ahead Tips:

  • Cover and refrigerate the marinade for up to 3 days; marinate the chicken for up to 12 hours.

How To:

  • It can be difficult to find an individual chicken breast small enough for one portion. Removing the thin strip of meat from the underside of a 5-ounce breast—the chicken tender—removes about 1 ounce of meat and yields a perfect 4-ounce portion.
  • Oiling a grill rack before you grill foods helps ensure that the food won’t stick. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to spray the food with cooking spray.
