Sometimes simple recipes are the best. This easy grilled chicken recipe is marinated, grilled and then topped with a balsamic reduction. You won't believe how good it is.

If you want to speed up the cooking, pound the chicken out before marinating. Serve for dinner with your favorite side dishes. Here's how to make the best balsamic reduction recipe.

Prep Time: 5 minutes plus 1 hour to 24 hours to marinate
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes plus 1 hour to 24 hours to marinate

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine the olive oil, garlic, thyme, oregano and lemon zest.
