Ingredients

  • Chicken Breasts- 4 about two pounds. The chicken should be skinless and boneless.
  • Kosher Salt– 2 ½ tablespoons.
  • Water- 4 cups.
  • Honey– 1 tablespoon.
  • Italian Parsley– 1 cup packed.
  • Cilantro– ⅓ cup packed.
  • Olive Oil – ½ cup.
  • Minced or Chopped Garlic – 3 tsp about 2 cloves.
  • Red Wine Vinegar – ⅓ cup.
  • Lime Juice– 1 teaspoon.
  • Zip Top Bags– several large.

Instructions

  • Start by preparing your chicken. Place each chicken breast, one at a time, inside of a zip top bag then use a kitchen mallet to pound the chicken down to about ⅓″ in thickness. Then set the chicken aside for a moment while you prepare the brine.
  • For the brine, place the water, salt and honey in zip top bag (you may need more than one bag) and mix the contents well (shaking it around while the top is close should do the trick). Then place the flattened chicken breasts in the bag(s) and allow it to set for at least a half of an hour. Refrigerating the chicken overnight is okay to do.
  • When you are ready to make the chicken, allow the clean grill to heat up. I like to oil the grates first before placing it on top of the grill.
  • Remove each chicken breast from the brine and use a paper towel to pat them dry. Then place the chicken over the heat (about 500 degrees) to cook. Flip the chicken over after a couple of minutes and then transfer the chicken to a less hot portion of the grill to finish cooking. Your chicken should be done cooking within 8 minutes but, check for redness or use a thermometer if in doubt.
  • To make the Chimichurri use a blender (I use a Vitamix) or food processor. Simply puree the remaining ingredients together until you achieve your desired consistency. Add additional seasonings (salt, cumin, etc.) as desired for taste.
