Lemon Balsamic Grilled Chicken | 21 Day Fix Approved

I couldn’t wait to share this recipe with all of you – my Lemon Balsamic Grilled Chicken was DE-LISH! It has taken me awhile to get the right vinegar to oil ratio – I hate it when the meat turns out tasting like it was sitting in a vat of vinegar all day. I was even raving about it to my mom on the phone as I was cleaning up! 

Today, I fixed the boys lunch when we got home from the park. While they were eating, I threw this together! I already had the chicken portioned out into a gallon size zipper bag from earlier this week, so I just added all of the marinade ingredients to my bag, sealed it and rubbed the seasonings into the chicken. NO MESS – I LOVE IT. Popped the bag into the fridge and didn’t think about it again until dinner time.  I love a delicious and simple recipe that requires minimal time. Marinades are a wonderful way to accomplish this!

Grilling the marinated chicken – I cut these in half because they were large – you want them to be around 4 oz each. (plus, they will cook a little quicker!)

Plated (before adding Feta on the chicken to show how amazing this looks!!)

I chopped up some zucchini and served it with spaghetti squash (angel hair for the boys). If you know me well – you also better believe I topped this with Feta cheese!! I saved my blue container for this meal and it was AH-MAZING.

Enjoy!

This chicken marinade was AMAZING. The Italian flavors and aromas were equally wonderful. This one earned a great big thumbs up from my husband and we will plan to add this one into our Summer rotation! Serve with some veggies and spaghetti squash - boom, dinner is served!

    This was an EXCELLENT recipe. Left out the Italian seasoning, simply because I didn’t have any on hand – but it didn’t detract. SO tasty. Will make again and again!
