  • Grill


  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar


  • Heat outdoor grill to 350 degrees F.
  • Trim chicken breasts of any unwanted parts and coat all sides with poultry seasoning. Let set while grill heats.
  • Grill each side of chicken breast for about 5-6 minutes on each side. Check the temperature has reached 160 F before removing from grill.
  • While chicken is cooking or resting, heat a small skillet to medium-low heat and add vinegar. Allow to come to a slow simmer and whisk constantly until it begins to thicken. The glaze will reduce by about half and may take up to ten minutes.
  • Remove the reduced vinegar from heat and pour over grilled chicken. You can also store in a heat proof container for storage.
