Marinated Chicken Breast (or other chicken)
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ cup balsamic vinegar or other vinegar
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
1/8 cup lemon juice
¾ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 tablespoons Dijon or Spicy Brown mustard
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
6 chicken breasts or 3.5 pounds other chicken
Whisk together all ingredients except the chicken.
Remove half cup of marinade and reserve for basting the chicken later.
Place chicken in a large resealable bag and pour marinade over the top. Close securely and turn the bag a couple of times to cover.
Marinade for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours, turning the bag periodically.
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Lightly oil the grill grates to prevent sticking.
Grill chicken for 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Baste the chicken occasionally with the reserved marinade.
Remove chicken from grill and tent with foil. Let chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
• Optional – if you bring the reserved marinade up to a boil, let simmer until slightly reduced – it makes a wonderful sauce to go on top of the chicken when served.
