Preparation

  1. In blender or food processor, place all Chimichurri ingredients. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth.
  2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 7 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown on both sides. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center and mixture is thickened.
  3. While chicken is cooking, heat bowls, and assemble remaining ingredients. Divide spinach among bowls; add chicken mixture, chimichurri, cheese and radishes.

Expert Tips

  • Traditional Argentine chimichurri sauce combines fresh parsley, red pepper flakes, garlic and vinegar. We’ve infused our version with spring flavors – mint, chives and lemon – for a fun twist that still delivers on the tangy, spicy herbal sauce.
  • For perfectly thin radish slices, invest in a mandolin. It’s a vegetable slicer that quickly and easily slices sturdy vegetables into consistently-sized pieces.
