Since grilling season is upon us, it feels apt to kick it off with one of my favorite grilled chicken recipes!

There is just something about the flavors of honey and balsamic together that I just adore with chicken.

Add in a little garlic, and you have a slam bang marinade that you can pull together out of your pantry at a moment’s notice and pairs unbelievably with chicken.

My deck smelled incredible while this was smoking away, and the kids both demolished this. A guaranteed hit for anyone’s family!

Helpful Tips to make Honey Balsamic Grilled Chicken:

  • I used the thin sliced chicken breasts for this recipe, but you can also achieve the same thing with regular chicken breasts- just sliced them in half horizontally for the same effect. This recipe would also work beautifully with boneless chicken thighs (can’t lie, my personal favorite).
  • To easily oil the grates. First brush of any remaining food particles. With the grill off, wad up a bunch of paper towels and grab them with grill tongs. Dip the paper towels in oil (to lightly coat) and rub the grill grates until coated. You don't want the grate dripping in oil. That can cause flare ups.

  • Large Bowl- to marinate the chicken.
  • Kitchen Tongs - I love this set of 3. I use every pair of them. They are so handy and grip amazingly well!
  • Grill Tongsuse your favorite ones or grab one of these.
