We love the strong herb flavors of this chicken! If you don't like balsalmic vinegar I would suggest you don't even try it. I make it with dried herbs as I don't usually have fresh herbs on hand and it turns out fine. Just make sure to decrease the amounts as dry herbs are stronger than fresh. This chicken is best when cooked on the grill as the smoky flavor blends incredibly well with the herbs and balsalmic vinegar. I have made this chicken for a few guests and everyone has said they loved it. It's great served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Read More

I definitely recommend doing this on the grill to get the best results. I had fresh rosemary on hand which was nice and used dried thyme and dried parsley. I put everything into a mini food processor to blend. I pounded the chicken down thin and let it marinate for close to 12 hours. If you're not a fan of balsamic - use white wine or white wine vinegar. This is a great marinade. I've tried so many from this site and this is one of the best. This chicken would be great over pasta! Read More

i marinated overnight and i only had dried herbs on hand so i used half the recommended measurements for them. It still turned out great. Read More

Fairly easy to prepare and good results. My only complaint is the balsamic vinegar overpowered the other flavors a bit. Read More

I used my immersion blender right in the bowl I was marinating the chicken (breasts and boneless thighs) and it made for less to wash. I too reduced the balsamic vinegar (to 1/4 cup) and increased the olive oil (to 1/3 cup) and found it was nicely balanced. Used dried thyme. Added 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes as well (we like heat!). A keeper! Read More

This recipe was exactly what I was looking for a way to make flavorful chicken breast without drying it out. I made a double batch of this for dinner and leftovers. Boyfriend loved it. Asked me to make it again. This is a perfect base. I changed the herbs and added some red pepper flakes for a little spiciness but this recipe is awesome. Read More

This is a wonderful recipe. I decrease the vinegar a little as was suggested by some reviewers and it was great!! I added a little extra of each herb as well!! I will definitely use this again on beef and pork as well. I think it would be great on salmon!! Read More

This was excellent - I used boneless chicken breast that I cut up into bite sized chunks (to cut down on cooking time) and I marinated it for only 1.5 hours. I made a foil packet and poured everything onto it - left it open on top and placed on the grill. I cooked for about 15-20 minuted. My 16 year old 11 year old and 4 year old asked me to make more next time! Read More

Great light tasting summer meal. Always looking for ways to utilize all the herbs in my garden. Used less vinagar (I used sherry vinegar) and more olive oil). Will do again. Read More
