2 ½ cups of white precooked corn flour
3 cups of lukewarm water
1 teaspoon salt
400g chicken breast
2 cloves of garlic
1 medium onion
1 ripe avocado
3 tablespoons of homemade mayonnaise
25 ml. extra virgin olive oil
A sprig of cilantro
Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Pour lukewarm water into a small bowl and stir in the salt.
Put the flour in a large bowl and begin to stir with your hands as you slowly add the salted water. Continue working the dough until you have a uniform and compact ball that does not stick to your fingers.
Roll the dough into balls and then flatten them until they are round and thick.
Put them on the stove on a griddle for about two minutes on each side.
Put them in the oven at 350ºF for 15 or 20 minutes, until you see that they look plump.
Cook the chicken breast and cut it into thin strips, add salt and pepper.
In a bowl add the chicken, avocado, mayonnaise, a little pepper, a little salt, cilantro, chopped onion and mix well.
Slice an opening in the arepa at the half way point and add the filling.
