Grilled Balsamic Chicken

Remember how I mentioned a few months ago that November was my month to start really focusing on eating healthier and losing weight? (If not, you can check it out {here})

Okay.  Well this is, by far, one of my favorite healthy dinners.  It's quick.  It's easy.  And, most importantly, it is absolutely delicious.  I slightly adapted the original recipe I found on Pinterest forever ago via  Picky Palate.  

Grilled Balsamic Chicken

In a bowl, combine 
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar (I fully intend on trying Raspberry Blush Vinegar next time.  Your options for yummy vinegars are endless!!)

Spoon over approximately 1 pound of chicken breasts (3-4 pieces), and then place those chicken breasts on the grill.  A few minutes before the chicken is done, add a slice or two of mozzarella cheese to the tops of the chicken and allow to melt.

While you're waiting for your chicken to grill, chop up 2-3 roma tomatoes.  Add 2 cloves of minced garlic and a teaspoon of basil to your leftover oil and vinegar mix.  Mix your tomatoes in the oil/vinegar mix (don't let them soak; I just put my tomatoes in a strainer and pour the oil mix over them), and then place on top of your grilled chicken.

It's that easy!  In the photo below, I served the chicken with parmesan roasted green beans.  The other night we paired the chicken with edamame.  Both yummy and both healthy.
