Ingredients
  • 2 to 3 pounds chicken pieces
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves optional
Balsamic Herb Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine marinade in ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Place chicken pieces inside a gallon size plastic storage bad and add marinade. Seal bag and turn it over a few times to distribute marinade. Refrigerate chicken for several hours.
  3. Grill over medium heat until chicken is thoroughly cooked (see Notes below).
  4. If grilling boneless breast, slice it and garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
Recipe Notes
Cooking time will depend on the cut and thickness of the chicken. Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of chicken reads 165 degrees F or no pink remains when sliced through the center. Allow chicken to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
