Balsamic & Molasses Chicken

Sticky,Tangy & Sweet

Tonight we are grilling chicken for dinner. I thought that this balsamic and molasses marinade sounded good, tangy and sweet.

Balsamic & Molasses Chicken

Serves 4

4 chicken drumsticks and thighs, 2½ lbs, skin removed
½ cup molasses
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp orange zest
½ tsp kosher salt
½ tsp freshly ground pepper

In medium bowl, mix together molasses, balsamic vinegar and orange zest. Pour ¼ cup in a zip-lock bag; add the chicken and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Meanwhile, simmer the remaining marinade for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Heat the grill.  Place the chicken on a tray.  Discard the marinade.  Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

Grill chicken for 20 minutes and brush with more marinade and cook five minutes more.  Serve and drizzle with the extra marinade.
