NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vinegar, like cider, balsamic, or red wine
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons dried herbs, like thyme, oregano, rosemary, or crumbled bay leaf
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons mustard, whole grain or Dijon
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon garlic or onion powder, optional
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast, each about 6 ounces
Directions

Put the vinegar, herbs, mustard, powders if using and oil in a large re-sealable plastic bag. Close the bag and shake to combine all the ingredients. Open the bag, drop in the chicken breast in the bag. Close and shake the bag to coat evenly. Freeze for up to 2 weeks.

Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, under cold, running water, or in the microwave at 30 percent power for 1 minute at a time.

Heat a grill or grill pan. When the grill is hot, place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. You can also bake the thawed chicken in a 375 degree F oven for 15 minutes, or until cooked through.

Outstanding recipe with simple and flexible ingredients. Great to have in the freezer - just put it in the fridge a day ahead, fire up the grill, cook on both sides for @ 5 minutes, then indirect medium heat for @ 15 minutes more. That's how I've been doing it for the last few years. item not reviewed by moderator and published
In my 67 years on this earth I have eaten a lot of chicken, my wife and I agreeded this was the best marinated chicken we have ever eaten 5 STARS PLUS item not reviewed by moderator and published
works great & adaptable. I made this the other night and it was three words, de li cious! Tweaked it and added horseradish for an extra kick. Even better. Had fresh lemon basil in the garden and this added another dimension. Advice would be to mix all of the ingredients in a salad dressing container, shake that up and then pour it over the chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe turned out well. It tasted good, but this isn't really a recipe its just a list of what you can use to marinate chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good, easy marinade and allows for simple ways to tweak the taste when you want something a little different. item not reviewed by moderator and published
tasty indeed item not reviewed by moderator and published
The marinade tasted really good. I was in a rush so did not marinade it overnight and I only used one breast and adjusted the amounts. It's a keeper for sure. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I marinated the chicken over night and then baked it at 375 for 38 minutes. It was great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is very good recipe. I used balsamic vinegar and dried oregano. Marinated overnight and broiled the chicken breasts about 8 min per side and they came out very tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were a huge hit. Moist, bursting with flavor. I made these with thin cut chicken breasts and marinated them for about 10 minutes beforehand. The only additional seasoning I added to the mix was fresh garlic, about a teaspoon worth, and I chose to use Herbs de Provence since that is already a nice blend of herbs. It was fantastic. Served with panko coated thinly sliced zucchini crisps on the side. item not reviewed by moderator and published
