Balsamic Marinated Grilled Chicken

Chicken cutlets can be a bit boring at times, so I'm always looking for different ways to cooking them,weather i stuff them, or bake them with beer, or marinate them this way, it's always a hit around here!
Enjoy!

Ingredients:
4 chicken cutlets, sliced in half if very thick

marinate:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried fine herbs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup olive oil

Add marinate ingredients to a jar with a lid and shake it well.
Place chicken cutlets in a large ziplock bag and pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Remove from fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
Preheat outside grill to high.
Place chicken cutlets on hot grill, lower temperature to medium high and cover grill. Cook 8-10 minutes. Open grill and flip chicken. Cook for another 8 minutes until chicken is fully cooked and internal temperature reaches 165F.
Serve warm sliced over your favorite greens or as a sandwich with fresh arugula and topped with roasted peppers and provolone cheese.

  1. My husband loved this! He loves anything with balsamic but only marinated it half the time and cooked in pan and still ate all 4 cutlets. Fast, good and easy. Highly recommend!! Thank you

  3. Making this tonight for the second time. First time I did it with boneless, skinless thighs, because that's what I had on hand. Came out delish. I suggest putting all marinade ingredients, except the oil, in the jar and shaking to dissolve the salt, and then add the oil and shake again. It's a science thing--salt does not dissolve in oil, but it does in vinegar.

  5. Didn't anyone else find this extremely salty, almost inedible, might try again and cut way back on the salt and pepper.

    1. I too found it too salty! If I make it again, I will use far less salt.

  8. I will try the fine herbs, I use good seasons powered Italian dresing but never thought to add the mustard. I'll try yours next. I love balsamic.

  9. I love the idea of making it into a sandwich. Would definitely use less salt and pepper. I try to cut down on salt use for my blood pressure.

  10. Looks yummy! Do you think I could use Balsamic Vinegar salad dressing instead? My Balsamic Vinegar is about 7 years old and I'm hesitant to use it! lol.

  11. Good balsamic gets better with age! Try Herbs de Provence.

  13. I loved this recipe. I didn't let the chicken marinate before hand (forgot, oops!) I just dipped the chicken in it, and put it directly on the grill! Also added a little parmesan cheese, really good!

  14. I rarely comment on foods that I have made, but this chicken marinade is my favorite! It is so yummy! I just add about 1-2 TBSP of honey to the marinate and also a few whole sprigs of fresh rosemary (gotta use what I grow!). My husband even grills it with the rosemary on top. The chicken actually has flavor and you don't need to dip it in any sauce to flavor it. We had guests over for dinner last night and they all wanted more chicken!
