Grilled Chicken and Tomato Skewers
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 tbsporegano leaves (or dried oregano)
2 cloves fresh garlic
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs red wine vinegar
1 tbs water
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
juice from 1/2 lime
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
olive oil spray
Make the chimichurri sauce. In a blender or food processor, combine ingredients for chimichurri sauce (everything except the chicken and cherry tomatoes) and blend until smooth.
Cut chicken breast into 1-inch cubes. Place in a zip-top bag with half of the chimichurri sauce. Let marinate in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 min. If using wooden skewers, use this time to soak skewers in water.
Thread chicken onto metal or wooden skewers, alternating between chicken cubes and tomatoes.
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Spray with oil and grill skewers 2 to 3 min per side. Reduce heat to low or move skewers to top rack of the grill until finished cooking, about 10 to 15 min. The chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165F.
Serve skewers with remaining chimichurri sauce. Serves 4
