  • Yield: Marinade for up to 3 lbs. of chicken


Simple Spiced Balsamic Chicken Marinade comes together quickly, requiring only 1-bowl and 5 minutes prep. Fancy enough for impressing guests, but easy enough for a quick weeknight meal.


  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar or other vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (you can sub brown sugar)
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Add all ingredients to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Store covered in the refrigerator or pour over top of raw chicken that has been placed into a zipper bag/shallow baking dish. Allow chicken to marinade for a minimum of 2 hours before baking or grilling.


  • This marinade can also be used as a veggie marinade. Follow same recipe directions, but pour marinade over raw veggies instead of chicken. Once veggies have marinaded for a minimum of 1 hour, spread them out onto a baking sheet and roast at 400 until tender.
  • Brown sugar can be subbed out for maple syrup or honey.
  • Nutrition information was not calculated for this recipe since most of the marinade will be discarded.
