Rosemary Chicken

There are so many ways to cook chicken and this is one of my favorites.  The balsamic vinegar might sound like an odd ingredient to use for chicken, but trust me this is delicious.

In terms of cooking time, this recipe takes less than 10 minutes.  But you want to make it ahead to allow the chicken time to marinate.  Marinate it for at least an hour, or make it up the night before and marinate it overnight.

You can cook this on an outdoor grill, a grill pan or an indoor electric grill.  Also feel free to substitute boneless chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat.
