Ingredients

    1 bunch flatleaf parsley, washed and stemmed
    6 cloves garlic, peeled and quartered
    1 cup 99% fat-free chicken broth
    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1/3 cup distilled vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
    salt to taste
    freshly ground black pepper
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 4 ounces each

Directions

Makes 4 servings (1 breast each)

1. Prepare the chimichurri. Finely chop the parsley and garlic in a food processor. Blend in the remaining ingredients except the chicken, adding the salt and pepper to taste. The chimichurri should be highly seasoned.
2. Arrange the chicken breasts in a baking dish. Pour half of the chimichurri over them and marinate for 1 hour, turning a couple of times. Preheat the grill to high.
3. Grill the chicken breasts for about 4 to 6 minutes per side. (Rotate the breasts 90° after 2 minutes to give you a handsome crosshatch of grill marks.) Serve the grilled chicken with the remaining chimichurri on the side.
