Ingredients
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes (including 1 hour marinating time)

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 1-1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, (see Note)

Directions
  1. Cover and refrigerate the marinade for up to 3 days; marinate the chicken for up to 12 hours.

  2. 4 servings

  3. Whisk oil, vinegar, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a bowl until well combined.

  4. Place chicken in a shallow dish or 1-gallon sealable plastic bag. Add the marinade and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours. Remove from the marinade and pat dry.

  5. Preheat grill to medium-high or position a rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.

  6. To grill: Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the chicken, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 8 minutes per side.

  7. To broil: Line a broiler pan (or baking sheet) with foil and coat with cooking spray. Place the chicken on the foil. Broil, watching carefully and turning at least once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 10 to 15 minutes total.

What note? Fire the editor! Oh, there is NO editor? I guess Diabetic Connect doesn't really care.
