The Best Grilled Chicken Breast

Grilled chicken can be a boring food considering that it is easy to dry out and overcook. It is just pure lean meat, with not much fat to keep it juicy. However if you have the right ingredients and condiments, then grilled chicken will be flavorful and tasty.

Marinating the chicken breast with different flavors will increase its flavor profile. Marinating the chicken breast for 24 hours is the perfect amount to have a flavorful and tastiest grilled chicken. If you are running out of time, then just 10 minutes will also work as long as you baste it during the grilling process to keep it moist and flavorful.

16 ounces Chicken Breast
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp smoked paprika
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
4
  1. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, honey, dried herbs, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and hoisin sauce
