    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 a very tasty recipe! There weren't any leftovers and that says a lot in this house!

    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.

    My family absolutely loves this chicken. We plan on making it at least once a week this summer.
