Grilled Basil Chicken and Tomatoes
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.
Light grilled recipe. Balsamic flavoring overpowered the basil so if you are looking for the flavor of basil, this may not be the recipe for you.
This was a very easy and flavorful recipe and the low calories is an added bonus!
I wasn’t that impressed with this recipe. The sauce was good and I liked the low calorie appeal; however I didn’t find anything special about the tomatoes or chicken.
Delicious! Made both the chicken and grilled tomatoes tonight for dinner and hit this one out of the park! Fresh basil is the only way to go. Saw the recipe in the magazine and cut it out to try and the family was happy I did. There was plenty of marinade leftover (after measuring out 2/3 cup to put in Ziploc bag with chicken) to top cooked chicken or green salad. II marinated it in the fridge for about 2 hours or a bit more. The chicken was very tender. This will definitely be going into the dinner rotation. Thx for sharing this Laura!
I made as directed, but only used 2 chicken breasts. I took the reserved marinade and boiled it down into a thickened sauce. It was delicious, and I froze the rest of the marinade for the future. My husband told me that this is a keeper.
Made this for a last minute dinner with a side of pesto pasta and it was awesome.
Using the blender for the marinade is so smart! My guys can be picky about chunks of tomato, so I love that half of them disappear into the marinade. Will be freezing a few batches of this to make on the indoor grill this winter!
This was so easy. It tasted great. I made this just as it called for. The flavors blended well. Delicious!
Would you marinade this overnight?
Be sure to use a blender and not a food processor to mix the marinade. I used 2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast and doubled the marinade ingredients, and it overflowed the food processor. I cut them into strips before marinating and then threaded onto skewers and grilled. They were tender and good. Next time I will use less balsamic (which was a little overpowering) and use more basil.
