Balsamic Grilled Chicken

June 24, 2014

This Balsamic Chicken was so juicy and delicious. I try to use different marinades with any protein I make. I just like the variety. I seem to get bored very easily from eating the same food over and over again.

I started out making just some grilled chicken with a side of quinoa and salad. I also had some tomato and Mozzarella topped with basil, olive oil, black pepper and balsamic vinegar. (My kids love snacking on these). Then I thought why don’t I just add that over the chicken on the grill and let it sit for a minute. I have to tell you the combination was perfect. Plus it looked so pretty.

We eat a lot of chicken at our house. Its my husbands number one source of protein other than eggs. For those of you that don’t know he is a body builder and a physician. He eats clean I should say about 95% of the time. Very dedicated. He kind of drives me crazy though when he always wants to know the ingredients in everything I make. The worst part of it though is when he walks up to the muffins I make for the kids and says “Hey Hun, how many scoops of protein did you put in these?”  Do you see my dilemma? There’s no way I will add protein powder to everything I make!

      Hi Dee
      Thank you so much. I have a few of them. I kind of have an obsession. I have a few regular cast iron ones and one electric one from amazon for like 60$. Not sure about the brand!
