Herbed Balsamic Chicken with Blue Cheese

This was quick & easy, I already had most ingredients on hand.  Instead of sliced blue cheese, I used blue cheese crumbles, sprinkling a little extra on top before serving.  The chicken was great paired with quinoa.

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 skinless boneless chicken breast halves (5 to 6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 2 teaspoons herbes de Provence*
  • 1 3-to 4-ounce wedge blue cheese, cut into 6 slices

PREPARATION

Place chicken in large resealable plastic bag. Whisk vinegar, 3 tablespoons oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in small bowl. Add to chicken; seal bag. Chill 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Brush grill rack generously with oil. Arrange chicken on grill. Sprinkle with herbes de Provence, 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer to plates; top each with slice of cheese.

* Sold in the spice section of supermarkets and at specialty foods stores.
