Easy Marinade

If you follow me on Instagram {MissCrysM} or Twitter, you've seen my pics on food. This grilled chicken salad is something the Hubby and I have been enjoying for the entire summer it seems. It's easy and light. I'm not a huge fan of fixing chicken but I've found a way to make it easy yet tasty. You obviously don't have to use the chicken on a salad. This is just showing how to make the marinade and how we've been eating it.

Easy Marinade

What You Need:
Dijon Mustard {any brand}
Garlic Salt
Balsamic Vinegar

Easy Grill Marinade

We pound the chicken breast thin because that's the way I like them best.
Sprinkle on the Garlic Salt, then add the Dijon Mustard. You can see how much I used but you can add to your own taste.

Next, splash on the Balsamic to each chicken breast and spread out the mixture. I use the back of a spoon. I found this to spread easier than a brush. Repeat on the other side. {both sides of the chicken}

Then you're ready to hit the grill! You could also make this marinade in a bowl and pour over chicken in a food storage bag and leave in the fridge until you're ready to use it. I've found it gives enough flavor making it right before we grill so I usually don't need to do it that way.

Here's the finished product, chopped and on our salads.
