How To Make Chimichurri Chicken Salad


You can use the chimichurri sauce as a salad dressing or sauté the chicken with it. This recipe has minimal prep time; the most time-consuming part will be peeling and cubing the avocado (I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s on par with folding a fitted sheet!) The chopped oregano and chili flakes can be substituted for dried and powdered forms.
