The quickest, easiest, marinade, dipping sauce, basting sauce ever!!!!

Add all the ingredients into a blender, blend until desired consistency

( I like mine fairly well blended, so that you can still see the bits or red chilies)

The sky is the limit. 

I marinate my chicken, seafood, veggies in had of the marinade and save some to baste while grilling and some to add on top of my protein of choice.

Just a few tips,  you can prepare this ahead of time and store in the fridge for a day or two. The Chimichurri tastes better at room temperature if added as a sauce.  For less spice and heat, you can use fewer chilies and garlic.

This is my favorite recipe for Chimichurri chicken pita sandwiches.

stuff pita with the prepared grilled chicken, a little extra Chimichurri, sliced sour mangoes, red onions, tomatoes and mayo. so good so quick!!!!
