Chimichurri Chicken Paillards

with Sweet Potato Wedges and a Green Salad

Chimichurri is an Argentinian herb sauce that’s most often drizzled onto steak (the South American nation is known for its beef, after all). But it’s also a sauce of many talents and pairs well with most proteins. Here, we’re taking that flavorful, fragrant action to pan-seared chicken breasts, letting the parsley, garlic, earthy spices, and lemon dribble all over the meat—which also has some great company from roasted sweet potato wedges and a fresh salad.

Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Instructions

Roast Sweet Potatoes
1

Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to upper position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut sweet potatoes into ½-inch-thick wedges (like steak fries). Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and 1 tsp cumin (we’ll use the rest later). Season with salt and pepper. Roast in oven until tender and crisped, 20-25 minutes.

Prep
2

Cut lemon into quarters. Mince 1 clove garlic (use the other as you like). Finely chop parsley. Halve tomatoes.

Make Chimichurri
3

In a small bowl, stir together parsley, a pinch of garlic, a squeeze of lemon, 3 TBSP olive oil, and ½ tsp cumin (save remainder for the chicken). Season generously with salt and pepper. Add more garlic and lemon to taste.

Butterfly Chicken
4

Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. With your hand on top of one chicken breast, cut ¾ of the way through middle, parallel to cutting board, stopping before you slice through completely. Repeat with other chicken breast. Open each up like a book and season all over with salt, pepper, and remaining cumin.

Cook Chicken and Toss Salad
5

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in center, 3-4 minutes per side. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together 1 tsp honey (we sent more), a big squeeze of lemon juice, and a large drizzle of olive oil. Add tomatoes and lettuce and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

Plate and Serve
6

Divide chicken between plates and drizzle with chimichurri. Serve with sweet potato wedges and salad on the side.
