Balsamic Glazed Herb Grilled Chicken

Here's an easy and tasty way to jazz up your basic grilled chicken, using things you probably already have on hand in your kitchen and garden.

Are you growing herbs this summer? I venture to guess that herbs are probably the most popular thing to grow at home. Even avowed brown thumb-ers can grow herbs in a pot and if you just don't care to grow some your own, ask a friend, I bet they have some on hand. As a last resort, head out to the grocery and pick some up.

Balsamic Glazed Herb Grilled Chicken

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh chopped herbs (we used thyme, rosemary and basil)
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash of fresh pepper
1-2 pounds chicken

Mix the vegetable oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, herbs, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Stir well to combine.

Add the chicken and let marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.

Grill over medium high heat, about 5-8 minute per side, depending on the cut of chicken you choose (boneless, skinless chicken will cook much faster than chicken on a bone). Your chicken is fully cooked when it is no longer pink inside.

Serves 4-8, depending on the amount of chicken you cook (count on about 1 pound per person).

Peas and love,
