Chimichurri, apart from being just a fun name to say, it’s even more fun to eat! It’s a refreshing, oniony, herby sauce with a verdant green color. Easy Chimichurri Chicken has these bold flavors infused throughout, marinating tender-cooked chicken and slathering it over top. It takes less than half an hour to make Easy Chimichurri Chicken, so you can enjoy a restaurant-quality dinner with no sweat. Make no mistake, the sauce is the real star of this meal; you’ll be using every shred of chicken to mop the plate clean.


1 pound chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, and pounded into 1/2-inch thickness
1 pound chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
1 cup chimichurri sauce, divided


Step 1

Preheat the grill to 450 degrees F.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, toss the chicken with about 1/2 cup of chimichurri.

Step 3

Let the chicken marinate for about 10 minutes.

Step 4

Grill the chicken breasts until fully cooked, about 6-8 minutes per side, depending on their size. Chicken thighs will take a little less time to fully cook, about 4 to 6 minutes a side.

Once the chicken is grilled, allow it to rest for about 4 -5 minutes before topping it with extra chimichurri sauce and slicing.

Step 6

Serve the chicken with any extra chimichurri on the side.
