Grilled Honey Balsamic Chicken


Summer means dinner on the grill.  Here's another great way to marinade and grill chicken.  We used boneless, skinless breasts, but I'm sure it would be just as great with bone-in chicken.  This sweet and tangy marinade is a nice change to our usual salty and smoky chicken marinade.  It's simple to throw together and only requires a few ingredients that you've probably got in the pantry.


We also love vegetables on the grill.  We seem to have a surplus of yellow squash right now.  We like to slice the squash length-wise, brush each side with olive oil.  Lightly salt and pepper both sides of squash.  Grill on top rack for a couple of minutes on each side to your desired doneness (I don't think that's a word, but you get the point.)  We like our squash a little crunchy.  Simple and delicious! 

Grilled Honey Balsamic Chicken 
1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts (I used 2 large boneless, skinless breasts)
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tsp quality balsamic vinegar
3 tsp honey
1 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper, to taste

Pound chicken breasts to even thickness, approximately 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch thickness. Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large dish, combine oil, vinegar, honey, and garlic salt. Add chicken to large dish. Allow to marinate 1-2 hours. Grill until cooked throughout. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
