Grilled Chicken with Chimichurri Sauce

Grilled Chicken Chimichurri

A classic Argentinian favorite, chimichurri sauce is a versatile herb-based sauce that is great as a topping, a dip or a marinade. We use it here to dress up grilled chicken. Make extra and you can keep it, refrigerated, for 2 to 3 weeks.
