I’ve already shared my love of chimichurri sauce. It is made with cilantro, parsley, garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. So bright and flavorful and just screams summer.

I’ve already shared how I love to serve my Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, and tons of you love that recipe too. You’re really going to love this chimichurri sauce on chicken kebabs.

It’s so simple to make. You marinate the cubed up chicken in the chimichurri sauce. You can marinate it for as little as 10 minutes if you’re in a hurry, or marinate it for a day if you’ve planned ahead.

Then you just poke the marinated chicken cubes onto the skewers and grill over medium high for 10-15 minutes. Since the chicken is cubed, it cooks really fast. I love a good 30 minute dinner recipe!
