recipe: grilled chicken, three ways


As part of my push to get healthier, I have tried to do more healthy meal prep. I found boneless skinless chicken breast on sale at the market and decided to grill up a bunch of chicken. Not wanting to have plain chicken for every meal, I decided to make three different marinades: balsamic mustard, garlic cajun, and spicy chipotle honey chicken.

Note: Recently I went to meet my mom and sister in New Hope, PA. While I was there, we stopped an at a store called Olive-n-Grape which sells tons of infused vinegars and oils. The recipes below use those oils which can be ordered here. Alternatively, you can just use regular non-flavored ingredients as a substitution.
