Grilled, Marinated Chicken

I needed a protein to serve with the tortelloni, and Jon felt like grilling, so I marinated some chicken.

For three chicken breasts:

  • 1/2 c olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp white truffle oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 small shallot, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 small orange pepper (I wanted red but didn't have one), roughly chopped
  • Pinch of dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley (didn't have any fresh)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

I let the chicken marinate for about 5 hours before Jon grilled it.

Once again, Jon grilled the chicken beautifully and made the most perfect grill marks. The marinade was wonderful - so tasty, just a touch of spice, and a ton of flavor. This marinade would probably work well with pork, too.

Have a great week!!
