Our kitchen is tiny and cramped, so we try to grill simple (but tasty) meals outside as often as possible during the summer months. Dried herbs work as well, but during the summer use fresh herbs for the best taste. —Kelly Evans, Denton, Texas

"I liked this recipe; it was quick and easy to make. The balsamic gave the chicken a tang! I used chicken tenderloins rather than thighs, but it wouldn't change the recipe at all. I used dried herbs, since that's what I had. Not a bad recipe for a quick dinner!"
