Sweet-tart balsamic vinegar spiked with garlic and Italian seasoning makes a fast and flavorful marinade for chicken. Serve with sliced tomatoes and grilled eggplant slices.

4 servings | Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes (including 1 hour marinating time)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Whisk oil, vinegar, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a bowl until well combined.
  2. Place chicken in a shallow dish or 1-gallon sealable plastic bag. Add the marinade and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours. Remove from the marinade and pat dry.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high or position a rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.
  4. To grill: Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the chicken, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 8 minutes per side.
  5. To broil: Line a broiler pan (or baking sheet) with foil and coat with cooking spray. Place the chicken on the foil. Broil, watching carefully and turning at least once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 10 to 15 minutes total.
