Easy Marinated Chicken Breasts

This is a good recipe to have in a collection when you don't know what else to make for dinner, but plain chicken breasts sound totally unappetizing.  It's very flexible, so it's pretty much impossible not to have all the ingredients handy.  These turn out flavorful and can then be added to pasta or fried rice or whatever else you may have the time and energy to make.

1 to 2 Tablespoons vinegar (cider, balsamic, or red wine)
2 to 3 teaspoons dried herbs (thyme, oregano, rosemary, crumbled bay leaf, etc.)
1 to 2 Tablespoons mustard (whole grain or Dijon)
1 to 2 teaspoons garlic or onion powder (optional)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

(1) Put vinegar, herbs, mustard, powders, and oil in large re-sealable plastic bag or plastic storage container. Close and shake to combine.
(2) Add chicken to marinade and cover thoroughly.  Allow to marinate at least half an hour.
(3) Cook chicken on Foreman grill, grill pan, or in oven at 375 degrees 20-30 minutes or until cooked through.

Notes: None.

Kid Participation: Shake chicken and marinade together.
