Grilled chicken breasts can be the epitome of dull. Too frequently they are dried out or rubbery. But whilst soaked in an extraordinary-quick marinade — with balsamic, brown sugar, and dried thyme — you’re assured deliciousness.
Freshly ground black pepper
Freshly chopped parsley, for garnish
- In a medium bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, brown sugar, garlic, and dried herbs, and season generously with salt and pepper. Reserve ¼ cup.
- Add chicken to the bowl and toss to combine. Let marinate at least 20 minutes and up to overnight.
- Preheat grill to medium-high. Add chicken and grill, basting with reserved marinade, until cooked through, 6 minutes per side.
- Garnish with parsley before serving.
