Balsamic Chicken

July 16, 2011


I don’t know what took me so long to start making this … but it’s really easy and everyone raves about it – even my kids (no small feat there!).  It’s one of those dishes that is simple to throw together and looks and tastes like you worked really hard. How can you not love that?  I am going to start prepping these a few at a time and freezing them, so I have them on hand – and it’s even easier – when I want to make it.

I know that boneless, skinless chicken breasts are a little less work to prepare, but I like to use bone in/skin on chicken because it just has more flavor. Grilling up a bag of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, though, would be a great way to have chicken all ready to go for the week – to reheat or slice up and add to salads, wraps or pizzas.  This is a great marinade for pork chops or pork loin, too.  Chef’s choice on which one you want to use!

Balsamic Chicken

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 tablespoons white sugar

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning

1 whole chicken, cut up

Combine all marinade ingredients in a gallon Ziploc bag.  Rinse chicken pieces and add to bag.  Refrigerate overnight (or freeze, thawing in refrigerator the day prior to cooking).  Grill over medium, indirect heat until meat reaches 170° F.

Voilà! The perfect summer food!
