    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    This is from the local paper. I've tried chimichurri sauce once and like it, so I want to try this one. The paper suggests to make the breasts all uniform size for even cooking: pound between sheets of waxed paper with a rolling pin, meat pounder or bottom of a heavy pot. Prep. time does not include marinading time.

      We loved this dish! It has a strong flavor that is simply delicious! I didn't include the hot pepper flakes. It turned out great! A definate addition to my recipe box.

      A good marinade for chicken. I only used 2 TBSP of the oil. I think the serving size should be changed -- 3 chicken breasts usually feeds 3 people, not 6. Despite that, this had a nice flavor and spice.
