Sweet Balsamic Grilled Chicken

I saw this recipe on Bo's Bowl a while back and finally got it on my menu for the week. The day I was planning on making this dish, I was driving home from work thinking about dinner.  I knew the recipe called for balsamic (obviously) and honey, but wasn't 100% sure of the other ingredients.  I started thinking... mmmmm, yea, some garlic would go really good in it...and let's not forget some red pepper flakes for some spice.  Yes, that sounds good!  When I got home and I pulled up the recipe, I had to laugh because I had actually thought of exactly the same ingredients that were in the recipe!  Whether it was subconsciously since I had seen the ingredients already, or if it's just really a matter of "great minds think alike", this is a recipe you need to try.  The flavor combinations are wonderful! Tart and sweet with just a tad bit of spice...beautiful!

Sweet Balsamic Grilled Chicken
Slightly adapted from Bo's Bowl
Printable Recipe 
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons honey
1/2 - 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 garlic cloves, crushed and minced

Rinse chicken and pat dry.  Place in a resealable bag or baking dish.  In a small bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients.  Pour over the chicken, cover or seal, and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade.

Preheat your grill to medium.  Rub oil on grill grates.  Place the chicken directly over the fire and cook for 5-8 minutes on each side or until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.  Enjoy!
