Balsamic marinated chicken

    1 hour 55 minutes

    This is a recipe I made up after eating heaps of bland chicken breasts. Chicken is so easy to prepare and this recipe makes the meat extra tender and juicy. You can marinate overnight if you want-I’ve included 1 hour marinating time in the preparation time.

    Serves: 4 

    • 3/4 cup (190ml) balsamic vinegar
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) water
    • 1 onion, chopped finely minced onion
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
    • 1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 4 (180-200g approx each) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

    Preparation:1hour15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour55min 

    1. Mix together the balsamic vinegar, water, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, rosemary, parsley, chilli powder and oregano in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken breasts, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. You can also marinate in a covered bowl. Marinate in the refrigerator 30 minutes to overnight.
    2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Lightly grease a baking dish. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade and place the chicken breasts in the baking dish.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken breasts are golden brown and no longer pink in the middle - about 40 minutes.

Thankyou very much. They wernt dried herbs - fresh - but it was all good.  -  15 Sep 2009


    Not a bad recipe, but I agree with one of the other reviewers: that the variety spices were virtually indestinguishable from the balsamic. (I used a high-quality balsamic, maybe that's why) I'd recommend the following additions/changes: -5-6 cloves of fresh garlic -Soy sauce (1/4 cup or so) -a bit of brown sugar Tasty! thank you!  -  20 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
