Baked Chimichurri Chicken Kebabs: Skewers of juicy chicken, peppers, onions and mushrooms slathered in a tangy, herby Argentinian sauce. This fresh and flavorful recipe will surely be one of your dinner regulars!


For some reason my last kebab post did really well, so I decided to go for another one. There were a couple of ideas I had in mind, but I kinda really wanted to make some Chimmichuri, so I just combined both those recipes in here.


So I know the popular way to go is Chimmichuri and Steak, but chicken was all I had on hand, so let’s just go with it.


Using chicken breast for these kebabs also makes them quite a bit healthy coz it cuts down on the saturated animal fat that’s in your typical steak. So the only real “fat” in these skewers comes from the oil in the chimichurri sauce - go for a good quality there and you’re golden!


Who doesn’t love a healthier version when possible right?
