Pomegranate-Balsamic Marinated Chicken

This one's SUPER easy and SUPER yummy - if you like balsamic vinegar. Our family loves it so it's a great recipe for us.

We've made this marinade before with regular balsamic & liked it, but then I found this Pomegranate infused balsamic vinegar at Albertsons. It added a sweetness that regular balsamic vinegar didn't have. (My family described the marinade with regular balsamic as "more bitter" than this one.)

FYI - There's a recipe on the back of the bottle for a delicious vinagrette salad dressing that's worth making!

We eat this chicken as an entree with sides or sliced up as a topper for salads. It's great cold the next day too.

Pomegranate-Balsamic Marinated Chicken

8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 16-oz bottle of Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar (you won't always use all of it)
1 soup-spoonful of minced garlic (probably 5-6 tablespoons)

Place chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag. (Use a strong one so it doesn't leak.)
Pour balsamic vinegar over chicken breasts until it just covers them.
Add garlic.
Zip bag closed & smoosh bag to mix chicken, vinegar & garlic until all chicken breasts are well-covered. Be careful it doesn't leak!
Marinate with Ziploc bag upright in fridge for 15-30 minutes. (No longer than 30 minutes or the flavors are too strong)

Grill over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes per side, until cooked through.


You could cook these in a skillet or under the broiler too, but the flavor is better on the grill.

We serve these with summer favorites like grilled corn on the cob, watermelon & veggies with dip. Also great on salads.
