Something a little different than BBQ sauce for your chicken. I came up with recipe because I wanted something I could marinade the day before or the morning of the day I would be grilling. All the work is done ahead of time. All that's left is the grilling.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This easy balsamic marinade makes for some deliciously moist and tender grilled chicken. The marinade has a mild flavor and doesn't overpower the chicken. It's a slight tang. This can easily be doubled or tripled. A yummy way to jazz up grilled chicken.

Note: We used thin cut filleted breasts and 7 minutes per side was perfect. Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the chicken. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken is cooked to 165F. The Test Kitchen
