Grilled honey balsamic chicken


I hate to admit but I am not a huge fan of chicken breast. I mean I eat it, sometimes like it but never really love it. I much prefer wings or legs. But with this honey balsamic marinade, I actually loved this meal! Balsamic vinegar truly does the magic here.

I served it with some grilled zucchini(my family's absolute favorite vegetable which you would see in almost every savory dish) and spaghetti with pesto which is a fantastic match for balsamic.

I am so glad I found this recipe, this made me realize I, a dark meat gal can actually love chicken breast. =)

Grilled honey balsamic chicken

Ingredients :

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp onion powder

Honey balsamic sauce
2 Tbsp honey
2 balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp ketchup
2 tsp garlic, minced

Directions :

1. In a ziplock bag, add first 6 ingredients and coat the chicken well.

2. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for honey balsamic sauce and pour half of the sauce over the chicken in the ziplock bag. Marinate for at least 30minutes.

3. Grill the chicken 3-4 minutes per side or until temperature reaches to 165F or no longer pink. Once cooked, brush remaining sauce on top and serve.
