Chimichurri Sauce

on May 6, 2014

My husband and I belong to a dinner club with 3 other couples.  The main stipulation is that you have to use recipes you have never tried before!!!  I tried a Chimichurri Sauce with grilled chicken (you can use tri-tip, etc.)!  I marinated the boneless, skinless, organic, free-range chicken breasts overnight… I doubled both recipes.


3/4 cup olive oil

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 T. garlic powder

1 T. freshly cracked pepper

1 1/2 tsp. sea salt

Like I said, I marinated the chicken overnight.


2 days ahead I made the Chimichurri Sauce..

..Chimichurri Sauce..

In a food processor or Vita-mix pulse

2 T. balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup packed parsley sprigs

7 garlic cloves

1/3 cup packed fresh rosemary leaves

2 T. fresh oregano leaves

1 T. lemon juice

1 1/2 tsp. chile flakes and sea salt

(Coarsely chop)

While pulsing, pour in 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil.  Let sauce rest at least 1 hour, or chill up to 3 days, then bring to room temperature.

Serve over grilled chicken, beef, etc.


Stay tuned for more of the recipes I used!


I got all of the herbs out of my garden, which is so fun!
