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.
