This marinated chicken is fantastic on the grill and is bursting with flavor.  It’s an excellent share when hosting a little summer gathering, but worth sharing any night of the week with your loved ones.

It’s just so simple to whip together this marinade, add the chicken and let it marinate.  The chicken soaks up the flavor quickly with a balsamic vinegar in the mix! 

I always top my grilled balsamic chicken with grilled grape tomatoes and sliced Vidalia onion that’s been coated with the same marinade.  It’s the perfect finishing touch to this winning combination.

Here’s the recipe to mix, marinate and grill…

Grilled Balsamic Chicken Recipe

Grilled balsamic chicken topped with grilled grape tomatoes and sliced onions


  • 4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken
  • 16.5 oz constellation variety tomatoes by Nature Sweet (grape tomato size)
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary (crushed)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning blend
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Remove the skin of the onion. Cut the onion in half and then cut it into thin wedge like slices.  Separate the onion pieces.

Cut the chicken breast into filets.

Whisk the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, rosemary, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and sea salt together in a glass bowl.

Use a third of the mixture to coat the tomatoes and onion slices.

Use the remaining balsamic mixture to marinate the boneless chicken.

Grill the chicken until fully cooked; 165 degrees.

Cook the coated vegetables on the grill in a grill basket until the vegetables are tender.  Top the cooked chicken with the grilled vegetables and serve.
