I used this on chicken thighs that I broiled. Turned out very good.

I modified this recipe just a little because I think the balsamic is a bit overpowering otherwise. I used half vinegar and half oil instead of the 2:3 ratio. I also added sliced onion and slice garlic instead of the garlic powder. I also put a few sprigs of rosemary in.

This is a great basic marinade. Next time I make it I am actually going to use onion powder or red onion instead of garlic and add 1-2 tsp. of sugar to cut the acidic taste although it did come out well balanced. However, for those who want a very healthy recipe this works without sugar and of course you can always use raw sugar or raw honey if you are concerned about processed sugar.

I love this recipe. My chicken turned out tender, moist & delicious. I use a charcoal grill for all my grilling & I added a little vegetable oil to the chicken before putting it on the grill. I did add brown sugar to the marinade to make sure there was no strong vinegar taste. This marinade is easy & my chicken was great!!!

This is my go-to recipe for chicken marinade. It's simple but very tasty, as well as healthy. The only difference I make is to use fresh minced garlic rather than the powder. I highly recommend this marinade.

This recipe, which sounds tasty, really was not. I think that it was too much balsamic. I really did not like this marinade

SUPER easy, and very tasty. Plus, it has no salt, so it's very adaptable for special diets (though I added 1/4 tsp of Kosher salt for flavor). A friend and I tried this marinade and really loved it! I'd also use it for zucchini and onions, and it would probably work for shrimp too. Highly recommended!
