Clean Eat Recipe :: Zesty Grilled Chicken

Share



As you may already know, Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is full of nutritional benefits, but it is also a fantastic marinade for various lean proteins because it's a great tenderizer.  Next time you're doing your weekly food prep, try this recipe to make some delicious grilled chicken that is sure to be a hit with everyone in your family.

Ingredients:
6-8 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1.5 tsp Weber Grill Seasoning - Chicago Steak (I know what you're thinking...steak seasoning on chicken?  Trust me, it's delicious!)


Directions:
1. Combine chicken breasts, ACV, garlic, Chicago Steak seasoning in a large Ziploc bag and shake until ingredients are evenly mixed and seasonings are coating all chicken breasts. Marinating in a pan works just as well.  Shake bag or turn chicken after a couple of hours for best results.  Let marinate for a few hours (if possible). We've found it to be best around the 6 hour mark.


2. On an indoor grill, cook on high heat for about 10 minutes in the closed position or about 5-7 minutes per side.  On a large outdoor grill, cook on medium-high for about 7 minutes per side or until chicken is 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

  1. This chicken is AMAZING. I make it 1-2 breasts at a time and just do them on the George Foreman. The vinegar makes it so tender and the "steak" seasoning makes it!! Thanks so much for sharing. I was dying for a "clean" marinade and this works perfectly!

    1. Since all that has been added is a marinade you should be fine to bake or broil them however long and at whatever temperature you normally would do for the amount of chicken you're making. I like to make 2 bone in breasts for 45 min. on a broiler pan at 425f. Flip once in the middle for more even cooking. For boneless you probably only need about 30 minutes.

  7. Do you pound your chicken down so it is the same size for even grilling?

  8. Although the chicken had great flavor and was VERY moist, my entire family complained that the vinegar taste was way too strong :(
