serves/makes: 2recipe id: 15412cook method: outdoor grill
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 chicken breast, split, skinned, and boned
Combine the marinade ingredients. Place chicken in a resealable bag, add marinade seal, removing as much air as possible from the bag.
When ready to grill remove from marinate, discard the excess marinade and grill until chicken is fork tender and no pink remains.
I like to cut the boneless chicken breast into strips, lengthwise and marinate for 1-2 hours, if possible.

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!
