Chimichurri sauce. It is so easy to make, and makes anything you put with it taste like it’s come out of a restaurant kitchen. Give it a go.


Multi-seed wraps work best for this recipe.




  • 1 Brown Onion - £0.16

  • 8 Skinless, Boneless Chicken Thighs - £2.50

  • Red Wine Vinegar - £0.80

  • 1 Bunch of Parsley - £0.70

  • 8 Multi-seed Wraps - £0.90

  • Garlic - £0.30

  • Red Chillies - £0.60

  • Dried Oregano - £0.70

  • 1 Lime - £0.30

  • 500g of Basmati Rice - £0.89

  • 2 Avocados - £1.80

  • Total Cost - £9.70 - This covers absolutely everything. All we assume you have in your kitchen beforehand is SALT, PEPPER AND OLIVE OIL.


  1. Make your chimichurri. In a bowl, add a handful of chopped coriander, 1 finely chopped brown onion, 1 finely chopped red chilli, 3 crushed garlic cloves, 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, salt, pepper and 6 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix everything together.

  2. Place your chicken thighs into a bowl. Pour half the chimichurri over the thighs and mix everything together. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 20 minutes.

  3. Get your rice on. Just pour 1 part rice to 2 parts water into a pan, bring to the boil and let it bubble away until the water has been absorbed.

  4. Heat a frying pan, add your thighs, making sure to pour over all the marinade. Add a teaspoon more of chimichurri to each thigh. Cook until the chicken is browned on both sides (should be about 10-12 minutes)

  5. Guacamole time. It is quite a simple one. Just add two avocados into a bowl with the juice of a lime, salt, pepper and olive oil. Mash everything together.

  6. Once cooked, remove chicken from the heat, place on a board and slice into strips.

  7. Assemble time. Take a multi-seed wrap. Spoon in some guacamole, and then a big spoonful of rice. Top the rice with a good helping of chicken, drizzle over some more chimichurri, wrap it all up and tuck in!
