  • Griddle pan


  • 1 jar chimichurri
  • 8 chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil


  • You can find all the ingredients and the recipe for my chimichurri here

  • Place the chicken thighs in a large bowl and coat them in roughly 1/2 a cup (or less) of chimichurri

  • Serve with an extra ¼ cup of chimichurri poured over the chicken along with roast vegetables, salad or a side dish of your choice
