Why We Like It
Chimichurri is a pesto-like sauce derived from Argentina. This is a delicious reason to fire up the grill -- everyone loved these! We have yet to find a veggie that doesn't taste great grilled, so mix it up with any of your favorites...if it fits on a skewer, go for it!
Make the Chimichurri Sauce:
Add to a food processor or blender and blend until well combined. Set aside.
Marinate the Chicken:
Place the chicken cubes in a large plastic Ziploc bag, or bowl. Add 1/3 cup of the chimichurri sauce to the chicken and toss until well combined. Marinate in the refrigerator (cover if in a bowl), for at least one hour, or overnight. Store the remaining chimichurri sauce in the refrigerator.
Preheat the Grill to Medium High
Assemble and Grill:
Assemble the skewers with the marinated chicken and vegetables. Grill the skewers, turning at least once, for 10-15 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
Serve and Enjoy!
Serve with more chimichurri sauce if desired.
