Chimichurri Chicken Strips

"Lemony, garlicky and lots of parsley! This is a delicious marinade that is typically used on beef, but its flavors make it outstanding on chicken or seafood. Grilling really brings out the true flavor, but a quick turn in a skillet on the stovetop works, too! Prep time includes marinating."

  • Combine all ingredients in a plastic zipper bag.
  • Marinate chicken strips for at least 4 hours.
  • Remove chicken from marinade; discard remaining marinade.
  • Chicken is best if grilled (perfect threaded on a skewer), but can be pan-fried until very brown for about 5 minutes per"side" or until thoroughly cooked.

    Delicious and easy. Made with with shrimp, as suggested, and grilled on the BBQ. Mmm-mm. Editted to add: Made with chicken fillets one week later. Boy is this good!

    Great and easy recipe. Thank you for a keeper, the flavor was so good. I put the chicken on wooden skrewers and they were done in about 25 minutes on the grill.

    I couldn't believe the flavors. I made up the marinade and put it with some frozen chicken tenders and kept in the freezer until I was ready to cook them today. Then I let them thaw all day in the refrigerator with a few minutes in the microwave until they were perfectly thawed. Then I cut them into bite size pieces and skewered with some green pepper. Finally I cooked them about 15 minutes on a stove-top grill. Delicious. I also used Italian flat-leaf parsley.

    These were delicious. You would think the flavors may be overwhelming, but they blend perfectly with moist, juicy chicken as the result. I used Italian (flat-leaf) parsley because I much prefer its flavor over regular parsley and placed the chicken strips on bamboo skewers for easier grilling. It was a hit and I know I'll be making these again.

    Excellent recipe! I like to serve this shredded in tortillas with the Copycat Chipotle Lime rice also on this site.
