This marinade comes from pantry staples and is so good!  This is perfect for one of those “Oh, no, what’s for dinner?” moments that happens midday.  It’s also great for planning ahead, too, as you can put the chicken in the marinade, then toss it in the freezer to cook another day.

So grab a bowl and whisk together some balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, olive oil and your spices.  It’s going to take on a strange color, but it will smell fantastic!

Hubby is the handy grill man in our house and he grilled these up to perfection!  So juicy.  So flavorful!  I tossed it on a bed of veggies, splashed a little balsamic on top and was a happy camper!
