Magic Chicken Marinade

This is a great marinade for chicken, created from years of experimenting with marinades from around the world.  I consider it a basic oil and vinegar marinade, but it really gives chicken a great flavor and juiciness.
  This is enough marinade for 8 pieces of chicken (4 breasts split or 4 legs and 4 thighs).

   1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
   1/3 cup wine vinegar
   1/3 cup olive oil
   1/4 cup dried Rosemary
   2 Tblsp dried Marjoram
   2 Tblsp dried Tarragon or thyme
   1 tsp sea salt
   1 tsp fresh ground black pepper

Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Place chicken pieces in a gallon size zip-lock bag.  Pour marinade in the bag and mix well with the chicken.  Place in refrigerator for a few hours up to a couple of days, turning occasionally.  Cook on grill, broil or bake.  Cook the chicken ONLY until it is 165F internal.  Do not overcook the chicken!
