After being invited to join Chivas USA for preseason camp in 2008, Chijindu showed well throughout and was offered a contract but in the end did not come to terms. Chivas USA would retain his rights. After other MLS sides expressed interest in his services, he would return to Chivas USA as they had first right of refusal due to discovery claim rule. On April 5, 2009 Chijindu signed a senior developmental contract with Chivas USA. He made his professional debut on 11 April 2009, in Chivas's game against Los Angeles Galaxy, and just one week later would score his first professional goal on 18 April 2009 against Seattle Sounders FC.
On August 6, 2010, Chivas USA sent Chijindu, along with teammate Gerson Mayen, on loan to USSF Division 2 Professional League side Miami FC.
On March 23, 2011 Chivas USA sent Chijindu on loan to first year newcomers USL Pro side Los Angeles Blues. He would lead his team to the a playoff berth in their inaugural season as a professional club.
Chijindu's loan with LA Blues ended at the close of the 2011 USL Pro season and his rights reverted to Chivas USA. At the end of the MLS season his 2012 contract option was declined by the club and Chijindu entered the 2011 MLS Re-Entry Draft. He was not selected in the draft and became a free agent. Chijindu signed with USL Pro club Wilmington Hammerheads in April, 2012.
After a brief stint with Wilmington, Chijindu was released from his contract to sign with Icelandic club Thor midway through their season and showed extremely well. During the 2013 Úrvalsdeild, Chijindu scored a team-high 10 goals, good for fifth in the league. He attracted interest from the biggest clubs in Iceland as well as bigger leagues across Europe and Scandinavia but would return. He would depart the club in December 2014 after having played nearly 3 seasons, appearing 38 times and scoring 15 league goals.
