Here's a classic way to make chicken breast taste great - balsamic marinade with Italian seasoning. The recipe is simple and the prep and grilling is fast. If you wanted an even simpler and faster shortcut, you could marinate your chicken with balsamic or Italian dressing, but the nice thing about making your own marinades is you control the ingredients and therefore the taste (including salt content) and the macros. Try making this marinade from scratch - you won't regret it
