I did have green olives though. So I made the connection. The first time we had it with steak and was thoroughly happy with the results. However it’s just as good, if not better with the milder flavour of chicken.
Bashing out the chicken like this to make it ‘minute’ chicken only takes a few extra minutes on the prep front, but saves a good 5 minutes on the cooking time. And it tenderizes and makes it much easier to tell when it’s done. Definitely worth it!
There are 7 ingredients listed here but one is olive oil which I don’t count in my 6-ingredient limit.
For the chimmichurri, place the olives, parsley, oil, garlic, lemon juice and 5 tablespoons water in a small bowl or jug. Using your stick blender puree to a chunky paste. OR puree in your food processor or regular blender. Taste and season with salt if needed (you might not depending on how salty your olives are). Set aside. If using beans, trim to remove stalks but leave the tails intact.
