Chimichurri sauce is a fantastic combination of fresh herbs that give a cool but powerful flavor to anything you grill. These thin chicken breasts get marinated in a Chimichurri sauce before a hot and fast pass over the grill. Serve as the main dish or slice and serve in salads, sandwiches, wraps, or add to tacos or pizzas.
Gather the ingredients.
Place chicken breasts on a large cutting board and cover with clear plastic wrap. Take a kitchen mallet and flatten breasts evenly to about 1/2 inch thick.
Place remaining ingredients into a food processor and pulse to make the chimichurri sauce. Do not puree mixture, but leave a little texture to the ingredients.
Place chicken breasts into a resealable plastic bag and pour chimichurri mixture over top. Make sure to coat chicken well with marinade before sealing bag. Place into the refrigerator for 2 to 6 hours in a refrigerator. The longer the marinade time, the more flavor will be infused into the breast.
Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
Take chicken out of the bag and discard marinade. Place chicken onto to grill and cook 5 minutes per side, or until the thickest part of the meat reaches 165 F. Remove from heat and serve.
Serve and enjoy!
- You can also make ahead of time and serve chilled and sliced over salads or in sandwiches.
