If you’re looking for a fail proof chicken recipe then look no further than my balsamic grilled chicken!  So long as you don’t overcook the chicken, this recipe can’t lose.  The tangy and sour notes of balsamic are complemented with freshly chopped mint and Italian herbs.  Perfect to eat with grilled veggies, couscous or over a bed of mixed greens.  Better yet – try it with my low-carb “couscous” with peas, herbs and feta!

Quick Italian Balsamic Grilled Chicken

Ingredients

balsamic grilled chicken

Ingredients for 5 servings

  • 1 1/2 lb raw chicken breasts, boneless & skinless
  • Marinade:
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
    • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt (or more/less to taste)
    • 1 teaspoon coarse pepper
  • fresh mint
Steps
  1. Mix ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl.  Place raw chicken breasts in a sealable plastic bag, then pour in the marinade.  Remove the air from the bag, then seal it.  Marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and lightly spray with olive oil.  Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and sear and cook on each side for 6 to 8 minutes.  The outside should be seared and no longer pink, and the inside should be white.
  3. Remove the chicken from the skillet and place on a plate (or in meal prep containers).
  4. Garnish with freshly chopped mint to boost the flavors.

 

Try this meal with my low-carb couscous meal for a satisfying and delicious meal prep!
