1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons of your favorite mustard
2 heaping Tbs Classic Monkfruit Sweetener
1 tablespoon coconut aminos or soy sauce

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener, coconut aminos, garlic, thyme, oregano and rosemary; salt and pepper. Reserve 1/4 cup and set aside.
In a gallon size Ziploc bag, combine balsamic vinegar mixture and chicken; marinate for at least 1 hour to overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Drain the chicken from the marinade.
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Add chicken to grill and cook, flipping once and basting with reserved 1/4 cup marinade until cooked through, about 5-6 minutes on each side
