    Hello friends! Today, I want to share with you another grilling recipe. This one is really very simple and quick – just an easy marinade for the chicken plus a glaze that takes only minutes to make. This grilled chicken with raspberry balsamic glaze is so flavorful and festive. If you are looking for a different grilled chicken recipe to wow your family or friends, this one is a winner. It is easy and quick to make, and it tastes and looks absolutely wonderful!

    The marinade infuses the chicken with such a nice refreshing flavor – garlic, parsley, basil, lemon and olive oil transform the boring chicken breasts into a new and exciting dish. Gotta love the freshness that these herbs bring to the mix! And then top the grilled chicken with this exquisite raspberry balsamic glaze. The fresh raspberry balsamic glaze will wake up your taste buds with its fresh flavors of raspberries, balsamic vinegar, and honey…plus a little extra zip at the end from the jalepeño and onion. The cooked and fresh raspberries and honey add an amazing sweetness to this dish which is balanced out with the tangy balsamic vinegar, the spicy jalepeño and the sweet and pungent taste of the red onions.

    How To Make Grilled Chicken with Raspberry Balsamic Glaze

    What you need

    Marinade/Chicken

    1 garlic clove, minced

    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, finely chopped

    1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, finely chopped

    1/2 tsp grated lemon zest

    1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

    2 Tbsp olive oil

    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    1 tsp salt, divided

    2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

    Raspberry Balsamic Glaze

    1 cup raspberries, divided

    2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

    1/2 tsp honey

    2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion

    1 tsp jalapeño pepper, minced

    Preparation

    For chicken marinade, combine first 7 ingredients and add 1/4 tsp of salt. You can also use a food processor to chop them.

    You need large chicken breasts (or regular chicken tenderloins). Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise by butterflying the chicken breasts and cut all the way through. Now you have 4 even thinner chicken breasts. Place chicken in a zip lock bag and pour the marinade on top. Marinade at least 30 minutes, or marinade overnight for best results. This makes the chicken so flavorful and tender.

    While chicken is marinating, prepare the raspberry balsamic glaze. Combine 1/2 cup raspberries, balsamic vinegar, honey in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for about 10 minutes, pressing with a spoon to break up the raspberries. Remove from heat. Chop coarsely the remaining 1/2 cup of raspberries.  Combine chopped raspberries, chopped onion, jalepeno pepper and 1/8 tsp salt, and add to the raspberry balsamic mixture.
