Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken drumsticks and wings I get my chicken from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend!
  • kosher salt + pepper
  • 1 batch chimichurri sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat your grill over medium high heat. Clean and oil the grates.
  • Season the chicken generously on all sides with salt and pepper.
  • Add the chicken to the grill and cover. Every 5 minutes open the cover and turn the chicken. Cook until the skin is crispy and the chicken has an internal temperature of 165ºF, about 15-20 minutes.
  • In the last 3 minutes of cooking, brush the chicken with the chimichurri sauce, then grill for the remaining 3 minutes.
  • Remove from the grill, rest for 5 minutes, then serve warm with additional chimichurri sauce.
  • Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for 5 days.

Notes

You can use any cuts of chicken for this recipe! Breasts, thighs, or even break down a whole chicken and cook all the cuts in this method.
If you don't have a grill, you can make this in the oven! Instead of using a grill, place the chicken on a rimmed baking sheet with a wire rack. Roast at 425ºF until the chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165ºF, about 20-25 minutes. In the last 3 minutes of cooking, brush the chicken with the chimichurri sauce, then roast for the remaining 3 minutes.
