Easy Balsamic Chicken
Recipe from Midwest Living

Colleen Weeden of the Midwest Living Test Kitchen knows her way around the kitchen. She puts together this simple chicken, then turns it over to husband Kent to cook on the grill. Colleen suggests using an instant-read thermometer to check if the chicken is done. Kent says its perfect every time if you use the thermometer, says Colleen.

Directions

2.
Place the chicken in a shallow dish. In a small bowl or small glass measure, combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Cover and marinate 1 to 4 hours.
3.
