This slightly sweet marinade is perfect for chicken and other poultry. If you boil any leftover marinade for a few minutes it makes a great sauce!

This marinade is sweet tangy and absolutely delicious! If you like balsamic vinegar you'll love this one. I did this on 4 boneless chicken breasts pounded thin. I added 1 Tbsp. of jarred minced garlic 2 Tbsp. of honey 1 Tbsp. of dijon mustard and a little chopped fresh parsley. I let it marinate all day and these were so tender you could cut them with a fork! Read More

I liked the sweetness but I think the balsamic was very overpowering. Next time I might cut back on the vinegar. Read More

I used this marinade for portabello caps and it was delicious! In addition I used just a pinch each of dried basil rosemary and cilantro and TONS of fresh garlic. I marinated for about three hours and then covered with foil and broiled for about half an hour. Next time I will marinade for less time (they were a bit too strong). This was the vegetarian/vegan alternative to burgers and was a huge hit. Served with roasted red peppers pepper jack cheese sprouts avacado and the "typical" burger garnishes. Read More

One word: SCRUMPTIOUS! Can I just say that I will never use another marinade as long as I live?! If you love balsamic vinegar as I do then you MUST try this marinade. It makes your meat burst with the flavor but without the acidic burn. I marinated my top sirloin chunks for 24 hours and OMG they were to die for! When you try this make sure all parts of your meat have a chance to soak in the vinegar and don't be alarmed when it turns almost black. I can't say enough good things about this marinade...it is the BOMB! Read More

Wonderful marinade. My husband remarked about how much he liked this and really wants me to make it again. i used with boneless skinless chicken breasts. The meat marinaded about 4 hours and came out tender juicy and with lots of flavor. I froze the remaining marinade with more chicken breasts for future use. Read More

This was really good and easy! I would say that if you don't like the flavor of sauerbraten you probably won't like this but my husband and I loved it. Read More

Delicious marinade for balsamic lovers! I skipped the onions and added a clove of minced garlic and fresh grated ginger. I put this over chicken and let it marinade for 4 hours and it was delicious!! I will definitly make it again but the only mistake I made is that I pounded out the chicken before I marinaded it and it fell apart when I grilled it but it was still yummy! Read More
