Ingredients:

  • 1 cup packed Italian flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 to 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon MAGGI Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sherry, white or red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup high-quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 (about 1 1/4 pounds total) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • Salt and ground black pepper

Directions:

PLACE parsley, oregano, garlic, bouillon, red pepper flakes and ¼ teaspoon black pepper in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Process until finely chopped, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add oil and vinegar; pulse until mixture is combined. Transfer to a small serving bowl. Cover; let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.

PREHEAT grill to medium-high.

PLACE chicken breasts on cutting board and cover with plastic wrap. Flatten with a rolling pin or kitchen mallet to about ¾-inch thickness. This will ensure the breasts cook evenly. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

GRILL chicken on each side for 6 to 7 minutes or until no longer pink and the juices run clear.

SPOON about 2 tablespoons chimichurri over each chicken breast; serve.

Cook’s Tip: Chimichurri can be made in advance. Store in a covered container for up to 3 days. Bring back to room temperature before serving.
