Zesty Grilled Chicken

We have a restaurant/buffet here in town that serves a chicken dish just like this one. It's always been one of my husband's favorite meals to get so I was thrilled when I stumbled upon this recipe a few years ago. It takes no time at all to throw all these ingredients together, put the chicken in the fridge before you're off to work and it will be ready to prepare when you get home. I also really like that it calls for ingredients that I typically have on hand.

 Things have been busy around here and I forgot to let it marinate all day, so yesterday afternoon I quick threw it together and got it in the fridge. I was only able to leave the chicken in there for about 2 hours and it still tasted great, so don't worry if you forget like I did. I always try to keep a little extra marinade out for basting while I grill.  Serve any leftovers in a wrap or on a salad.

Zesty Grilled Chicken

6 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

In a large resealable bag combine the first 9 ingredients, add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 4-8 hours, turning occasionaly.
Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken over medium heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
* If you want extra flavor, make sure to keep aside some of the marinade before you add the chicken, that way you can baste the meat while it cooks.
