Easy Marinated Italian Grilled Chicken (Round One)

I am always looking for ways to get ahead when it comes to making meals for my family. One of the best pieces of advice I have received is this. If you are going to cook a simple meat, (chicken, pork, ground beef) make double what you need for the meal you are cooking for and morph the extra meat into a new dish the next day! I am already cooking. Might as well make double. Saves so much time and I know that a great meal for my family is just a few ingredients away in a very short time. I plan to share a some of these easy round one and two recipes with you!

This Marinated Italian Grilled Chicken recipe is so stinkin’ easy! But not only is it easy, it is so flavorful!

Here is the step by step. (Which is kinda silly since it is sooooo easy!)


Start with 14 Chicken Tenderloins in a large bowl. (Remember we are doubling the meat here for a second meal!)

Add pepper.


Italian seasoning.


Garlic Powder


Red Pepper Flakes for a little kick!


Some Salt in next.


Balsamic Vinegar. (mmmm…. I love Balsamic Vinegar!)


And last a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil.


Mix it all up. Cover and store in fridge (1-2 hours) until it’s time to cook dinner.


Get out two large skillets or grill pans. Turn to high heat and grill!


Serve half of the grilled chicken tenderloins with some steamed Broccoli and brown rice for a simple, yummy dinner.

Store the remaining chicken in the fridge until you are ready to make a quick and yummy second meal out of them!
