A very easy recipe for grilled chicken with a delicious balsamic reduction. I grilled this on my Weber Grill.


For glaze
Balsamic vinegar 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Fresh rosemary 3 Pinch , chopped
Fresh thyme 3 Pinch , chopped
Salt and pepper To Taste
White sugar 2 Teaspoon
Orange 1 , zested
Other ingredients
Chicken breast 6



1. Clean chicken and pat it dry.

2. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Preheat grill to 275 degree F and grease it with oil.


4. For glaze, place a saucepan on flame and combine vinegar, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper, orange zest, and sugar in it. Bring it to a boil.

5. With strainer remove and discard the herbs floating on the top.

6. Stir constantly and let it simmer until thickened to reach the consistency of honey. Remove pan from heat and allow it to cool at room temperature.

7. Place chicken on indirect flame. Cover grill with lid and cook for about 35 minutes or until done.

8. After 15 minutes of cooking turn the chicken. Cook for another 10 minutes and then baste chicken with glaze on both sides. Continue cooking.

9. Put chicken on direct heat and cook until caramelized. Remove chicken from grill and allow it to rest.


10. Serve chicken with roasted potato and rosemary garnish.


The internal temperature of chicken must reach 160 degree.
