Grilled Honey Balsamic Chicken

Just four more days.  I only have four more to go until this little girl gets here.  The last part seems the longest!  I have spent the day nesting and I am trying to get everything ready as much as I can in these last few days.

I still feel like I have so much to do and get our hospital bags packed.  But you can only so much when you are this close to the end.  So I think I will sit down with my feet up and write this post.  With some Dove chocolates of course. 😉

I love easy to grill recipes with great flavor. I wanted to make something that would taste amazing and that my kids would also enjoy.

I have made a similar honey balsamic pork recipe that is hands down my favorite.  So I decided to marinade the sauce in some chicken and throw it on the BBQ!    The chicken was cooked to tender perfection, and the glaze was to die for.  This recipe was a huge success!

How do you make Grilled Honey Balsamic Chicken?

  • In a ziplock bag, add chicken, olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, and onion powder. Make sure the chicken is completely coated in the seasonings.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together honey, balsamic vinegar, ketchup, and garlic. Pour half of the sauce into the bag and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Grill your chicken on each side about 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink.
  • Place reserved sauce in a small saucepan and allow to deglaze for 2-3 minutes over medium high heat. Brush sauce on top of chicken.
