Chimichurri Chicken Tacos

Tender chicken marinated in a chimichurri sauce with all of your favorite tacos fixins’ in a homemade flour tortilla.

 

I love tacos. It’s one of those dishes that essentially is so unbelievably simply but so delicious. Take your favorite protein and fill up a tortilla with it and a bunch of veggies.

Every night can be taco night and this recipe is a great one to give a try!

Chimichurri Chicken Tacos

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cubed)
  • 1 cup homemade chimichurri sauce
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • 2 cups homemade pico de gallo
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • sour cream or thick yogurt (as desired)

Preparation:

In a large bowl, combine together the chicken and the chimichurri sauce. Stir well until the chicken is thoroughly coated. NOTE: you can allow it to marinate for 30 minutes to several hours OR cook it immediately. Either way, it’s going to be delicious!

Place the marinated chicken in a large non-stick frying pan. NOTE: there’s no need for extra oil because there’s oil in the chimichurri sauce.

Sauté the chicken until it is no longer pink inside but still juicy and tender.

Remove from the heat and assemble your tacos to your liking. I fill my tacos with the chimichurri chicken, shredded romaine lettuce, pico de gallo and a dollop of thick yogurt or sour cream.
