Balsamic Grilled Chicken A tender, flavorful chicken freezer meal

Balsamic Grilled Chicken is a simple, flavorful freezer meal!

Balsamic Grilled Chicken is another good freezer meal. I cannot say enough how fantastic it is to have a freezer full–or half full—or even a little bit full!—of freezer meals. It is so nice to have something to pull out and it is all but ready. You can grill it (our usual choice) or roast it in the oven. The original recipe calls for thighs but we prefer breasts. Use any cut of chicken you like. The balsamic vinegar gives it a great flavor. This literally takes minutes to put together!

It is shown with Low Carb Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheesy Bake and it was delicious together!

This recipe came from the book, “Don’t Panic More Dinner’s in the Freezer”. It has a lot of good freezer recipes in it. The book calls it Balsamic Roasted Chicken Thighs in the book but we grill it and use breasts so call it Balsamic Grilled Chicken. 


2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs with bone and skin

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp minced garlic cloves

Dash of salt

Dash of pepper

To Freeze:

Add chicken to a labeled freezer Ziploc bag.

Mix other ingredients together and pour over chicken.

Seal the bag and gently squeeze bag and move chicken around until it is coated with marinade.

Lay flat in freezer and freeze.


To Serve:


Grill the chicken on both sides until it is no longer pink inside and juices run clear.

Or roast in 350* oven in greased baking dish, uncovered, for 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear and it is cooked through. If using chicken with skin, place in the baking dish with skin side up and coat with marinade.
