Chicken chimichurri

15 minutes (5 minutes)
Serves 4
  • 4 x 100g lean chicken breast fillets
  • 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cup green beans, trimmed
  • 2 bunches broccolini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups '90 second quick' brown rice
  1. Preheat a grill or frying pan on medium to high heat and spray with olive oil. Grill the chicken breasts, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and firm to touch, about 10-12 minutes.
  2. To make chimichurri, place parsley, garlic, chilli flakes and vinegar in a small food processor and blitz until finely chopped. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and mix through.
  3. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the green beans and broccolini and simmer for 4 minutes until tender. Drain. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil and lemon juice over the vegetables before serving.
  4. Meanwhile, heat microwave brown rice according to packet instructions.
  5. Slice the chicken breast and drizzle with chimichurri.
  6. Serve with 1/2 cup brown rice per person, green beans and broccolini.
