This is making something from nothing.
Home alone one evening last week, I only had myself to feed and I wanted something healthy and colorful.
The fridge was looking poorly with a little of this or that lying about in half empty bags or plastic containers.
There was a half bag of sweet red, yellow, and orange peppers, a few carrots, a quarter cabbage hunk, an opened container of once fresh mushrooms, 4 small inner stalks of celery, 4 or 5 green onions, and lots of garlic.
There's always lots of garlic here.
I pulled the poor veggie refugees from the fridge and chopped them up.
A frozen chicken breast got the same brutal treatment, plus a little soak in a teriyaki, wine, vinegar, red pepper, ginger, cornstarch marinade.
|Then there was a little stirrin' and a little fryin' in the trusty wok.|
Some peanuts and two datil peppers jumped in to liven things up.
And ... VOILA!
(That there is Francais, ... I don't know how to say VOILA in Chinese)
|Before the chicken breast went into the cast iron skillet, I squished it around with a mixture of kosher salt, oregano, basil, and cayenne until each piece had a good coating.|
|Then the veggies hopped in.|
