Tuscan Chicken Marinade


  • ¼ cup sundried tomatoes packed in oil (plus ¼ cup of oil from the jar)
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • ¼ cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts



  1. Place all of the ingredients for the marinade in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour ¾ cup of the marinade into a large zip lock bag. Reserve about ¼ cup of the marinade for serving. Add the chicken breasts to the bag and marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  2. Lightly grease the grates of an outdoor grill. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade.
  3. Place the chicken onto the grill and cook for about 5 minutes per side or until the chicken is fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees F.). Serve with the reserved marinade.
