Sweet Balsamic Grilled Chicken & Strawberry Pie


Sweet Balsamic Grilled Chicken

3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 olive oil
2 tbs chopped fresh rosemary
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 tsp honey
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts

In a bowl combine the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, rosemary, garlic, red pepper flakes, and honey. Pour it into a gallon storage bag.  Add the chicken and allow it to marinate for at least 2 hours and up to overnight.  Rotate the bag occasionally to ensure the chicken gets marinated evenly.   Remove the chicken from the bag.  Discard the marinade and pat the chicken dry with paper towels.  Then season both sides of the chicken well with salt and pepper.  Grill the chicken over a medium hot fire for about 10 minutes on each side or until it is cooked through.


This chicken was delicious, moist and very tasty.  I served it with baked potoato and a selection of salad vegetables. The dressing for the vegetables was a simple French Dressing made using 'Fig Vinegar' that I got when I was on holiday.  It is really delicious and quite a different taste, not a taste of figs at all, just a sort of fruity taste, but not as sweet as raspeberry vinegar.

I followed this with a Strawberry Pie, I found this great recipe on All Recipes, it's so easy and the result not only looks good, but also tastes great.

  3. I have had Strawberry Pie just once and it was lovely. I keep saying I'll make one, but strawberries are good (and easy!) uncooked it always seems a shame! One day I will, though ...
    (The Balsamic chicken sounds good too!)
