There’s not a time of year that we don’t grill outside. Seriously. My husband has been out there in the rain, the snow and blistering heat. I don’t even think he notices. He enjoys grilling that much. I’m more of a perfect weather griller. When I was first learning, I was so into it that I took a skillet outside one morning and made bacon and eggs for the kids on the grill. Yep. That sounds crazy to me too but I did it! LOL! Today, I’ve got a (no skillet) fresh herb chicken marinade recipe that is delicious, simple and will make your dinner plans easy tonight. You’re grilling!
My grill master made this recipe up and it was DELICIOUS! Seriously, we just ate it so I should know. LOL!
Here he is on the way to the grill after marinating the chicken for 2-4 hours.
Fresh Herb Chicken Marinade for Grilling
- 1/2 c vinegar
- 1/3 c olive oil
- 2 Tsp chopped fresh thyme
- 3 Tsp fresh rosemary
- 1 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
- 2 tsp salt
- 4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts thawed
- Add all ingredients to a plastic bag.
- Seal the bag.
- Marinate 2-4 hours before cooking.
- Cook marinated chicken on the grill until the juices run clear.
- Serve and enjoy!
There are so many ways you could serve this chicken. We had it with roasted corn, zucchini and carrots. It would make a great sandwich or go great on a salad!
A tip! Grow your most used fresh herbs somewhere you can easily get to them. That way you keep them in mind and within easy picking for recipes you try or create. This is our thyme and rosemary. We planted it 3 years ago and it’s still bringing happiness to our dinner plates. We’ve got them in planters outside near the grill.
Speaking of grills, did you know that 65 years ago, Char-Broil brought the first charcoal grill to market? That’s so cool! Their latest breakthrough is Char-Broil’s new Kettleman 22.5” Charcoal Grill (MSRP $129). While the shape may be familiar, the Char-Broil Kettleman Grill is no ordinary charcoal kettle – it is loaded with features that give backyard enthusiasts better control over every aspect of the cooking process, like over temperature, flare-ups and clean-up. You can get one at Lowe’s or online at www.charbroil.com
