So when I saw this recipe for Herbed Balsamic Grilled Chicken, it was calling my name. I made a few changes to the recipe, which are reflected in the recipe written below. I reduced the oil, added garlic and substituted Italian herbs seasoning for the herbes de Provence. Combined with the balsamic vinegar, I dare say the combination resulted in the best grilled chicken ever!
