Chicken and Chorizo Arepas with Chimichurri

Reina pepiada, a rich combination of chicken, avocado and mayonnaise, is a popular Venezuelan filling for hearty, patty-shaped arepas. The filling combinations are endless, however, so have fun experimenting with your favorite meats and cheeses. If you can't find Harina P.A.N., the popular Venezuelan brand of cornmeal for arepas, use any brand of precooked cornmeal, but be sure to start with only 1 cup water for each 1 cup corn flour, as grinds can vary slightly.

Great with Tweaking
August 23, 2014
My partner is Peruvian, and he was crazy about the chimichurri sauce, which is also popular in Peru.
I made this once, and was overpowered by the onions in the chicken salad. I decided I would make it again with some tweaks, and it was awesome. So:
1. Be judicious with the amount of onion. I only use 1/4 of one, if that. Otherwise, it tastes like onion salad with some mayo and chicken.
2. Use soy chorizo. Seriously. You can't taste a difference (I swear) and it's less greasy.
Other than that, great recipe. I make it every so often in our dinner rotation.
Pros: Will Make Again

really liked the chimichurri sauce... overall, pretty easy to assemble, just a little time consuming.
