EASY RECIPES GRILLED CHICKEN

I made this tonight and it was delicious. I doubled the recipe and ended up using 3/4 of it for the chicken.

I was thinking of using some of the leftover marinade (it never came into contact with the chicken) as a salad dressing.

Is there any reason not to do this?

Thanks!

INGREDIENTS:

    • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, Dijon, brown sugar, Worcestershire, garlic, thyme, oregano and rosemary; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Reserve 1/4 cup and set aside.
  2. In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine balsamic vinegar mixture and chicken; marinate for at least 1 hour to overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Drain the chicken from the marinade.
  3. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Add chicken to grill and cook, flipping once and basting with reserved 1/4 cup marinade until cooked through, about 5-6 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
