Something from Nothing - Week 3
I KNOW! I am soooooo late on this post, it's not even funny. Well, if it makes you feel any better, I have good reasons - like re-gaining gainful employment! That is the reason this Pixie has been too pooped to pop! Anyhoo, like all those already in the working world, my time and my energy have been seriously compromised. It shall not deter me from my cause to make a dish from leftover ingredients each week for a year, and share the results.
This week (week 3), I had a bag of these, which were in danger of turning into fridge Frisbees....
I also had one lonely chicken thigh, at the bottom of what used to be entire bag of thighs....so it hit me, Buffalo-style chicken wrap! First, I shallow-fried the chicken thigh, seasoned with salt and pepper, until it was cooked through...
I then spread the tortilla with mayonnaise..
And lined it with some crunchy lettuce leaves...
On top of the lettuce went some shredded mozzarella cheese, because that is what I had on hand...and of course, some zingy pickled jalapenos..
To make the Buffalo-style sauce, you simply melt together butter or margarine, hot sauce, and a splash of apple cider vinegar...
When the chicken had cooled enough to handle, I shredded it up for the wrap like so...
Toss the shredded chicken in your Buffalo sauce..
Then, fill your tortilla with it...include all that spicy sauce!
Roll it up, burrito-style, cut in half, and enjoy! My results?
Filling, delicious, crunchy from the lettuce, cooling mayonnaise and cheese, and spice-tacular from the buffalo sauce and jalapenos! It was a tasty and satisfying lunch created with just what I had lying around, needing to be used. That is the whole point of this project, after all!
Eat well, my friends, and stay tuned for week 4 of Something from Nothing, some workday lunches, and Kitchen Angels' Autumn fun!
