South Beach Balsamic Chicken

South Beach Balsamic Chicken

A juicy, tangy, flavorful grilled or baked chicken recipe that cooks in 20 minutes.


Units Scale
  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (or 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced or 1/2 teaspoon jarred, minced garlic)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (use sea salt for corn free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper


  1. Rinse the chicken and pat it dry. Put it in a baking dish in a single layer and set it aside.
  2. In a 1 cup or larger measuring cup, add the vinegar, wine, oil, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. Whisk to emulsify.
  3. Pour the vinegar mixture over the chicken and make sure all parts of the chicken are coated. Cover the chicken and refrigerate for at least one hour. At least once in the hour, turn the chicken over to make sure the vinaigrette covers all the chicken.
  4. Heat oven to 450°F. [Alternatively, you can bake the chicken on a hot outdoor grill for 6 minutes a side or on an indoor grill for a total of 6 minutes.]
  5. Remove the covering from your baking dish and put the dish uncovered in the hot oven for 20 minutes, turning the chicken over midway through the baking time.
