Introduction: Chimichurri Marinade
This quick and easy marinade is a great for grilling. Whether you prefer chicken, fish, steak, this marinade adds great flavor to grilled meat.
I prefer using a charcoal grill, but you could cook this in anyway you like.
Step 1: Ingredients
4-6 chicken breasts (or your meat of choice)
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 cup fine chopped parsley
1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning (or your favorite spicy blend)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
Step 2: Mixing and Marinating
Combine all of the ingredients into a bowl or ziploc bag and mix well. Add meat to bowl or bag and coat all the pieces. Let the meat marinate for an hour or two.
Step 3: Prep and Cook
Prep your grill, wood chips, etc. Place the meat on the grill and cook to your taste in doneness. Let the meat rest for 10-15 minutes. Serve with a side of grilled mushrooms and broccoli, and you have an awesome meal.
Step 4: Tips
Don't marinate overnight. The acidity in the vinegar can begin to cook the meat if left in too long.
If grilling, use a low heat for fish, pork, and chicken, and a higher heat for steak.
This marinade is also great to use with grilled vegetables (potatoes, mushrooms, squash, etc).
