Here’s lunch. Leftovers transformed into something that tasted quite yummy. I must admit that I think my strength in cooking is the ability to throw a whole bunch of stuff together into something edible. While I follow recipes just fine, grabbing things from the fridge and turning them into a meal is a whole lot more fun. Brings out the mad scientist in me I guess.
Thai inspired rice
Leftover chicken cut up into chunks (about 1 cup)
Leftover jasmine rice (about 3 cups)
3 scallions chopped finely
2 T. chili garlic sauce
2 t. fish sauce
1 c. cilantro chopped finely
1/2 c. basil, chopped the same way
1 c. snow peas sliced into vertical strips
2 T. soy sauce
Juice of one lime
I sauted the chicken with the garlic sauce for a few minutes while I chopped up everything else. Add the rice and the remainder of the ingredients. Mix well, heat for about 5 minutes and serve. This made 3 generous servings – Lunch for the two of us and lunch for tomorrow.
