"It was good but not great. A great low calorie marinade that I would let marinade for as long as possible. I think it would be better with some thin cut chicken breasts."

"This was extremely easy to make. I was concerned about what seemed like lots of balsamic vinegar, but it was not overpowering at all. I had fairly large chicken breasts, so I cut them into pieces and flattened the thicker pieces. The chicken was very tender after grilling and very tasty. I may try adding some garlic next time and a little more lemon juice just for something a little different. I also used the marinade on zucchini and grilled it. It was tasty on the zucchini, too."
