  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp oregano — dried
  • 1 cup fresh parsley — packed
  • Dash of honey

Grilled Chicken:


  1. First add all the Chimichurri ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender and process on low. For about 3 minutes.

  2. In a medium bowl with lid add the chicken breasts and pour over half of Chimichurri sauce.

  3. Using a spatula mix everything well to coat the meat evenly.
  4. Cover with plastic film and refrigerate for one hour or overnight (It'll be even better if you marinate overnight).
  5. Preheat the grill on high. Place marinated chicken on the grill. Cook each side for about 15-20 minutes.
  6. Before serving drizzle with remaining Chimichurri sauce.
