There are many times I have gone bonkers thinking of what to prepare for lunch on weekends. It's so hard to think up of the dishes to cook that are not complicated. I totally understand now why my mother keep repeating "I don't know what to cook today" heh. What more she has to cook everyday for us!
I was pondering one Sunday morning over the same question, I could go the easy way out by going out to eat but in the end we would be in a dilemma too as to where to go and eat!!! Grrrr so the easy way out is to check what I have in the larder and fridge. I have a packet of flat bread which I've bought but still not sure what to do with them hehe. I have butterhead lettuce, sour cream and cheddar cheese. Hmmm so off to the market I went and grabbed a piece of chicken breast, lots of red onions and one avocado... woooo wet market these days darn canggih ok! Yes the fruit stall does sells avocado, strawberries and blueberries!!! Most times they're slightly cheaper than the supermarkets.
I removed the skin from the chicken and clean it up. Sliced into half and marinade them with some oyster sauce, Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce and black pepper in the fridge for a couple of hours. Wash, soak and drain the lettuce leaves. Sliced up the onions into half rounds slices and I'm good to go.
Using a non-stick pan, I fry the chicken breast with some oil. Fried one side for about 7 minutes and flipping over to cook the other side. I poke into the centre of the breast to check the juice. When it run clears means it's cooked. Removed the chicken from pan and set aside.
In the same pan, add some oil if it's not enough, fry up the onions till limp, brown and caramalised. Season with salt and black pepper. Dish up and then slice the chicken. Place them on top of the onions.
For condiments, sliced up avocado and squeezed in some lemon juice to prevent them from browning. Grated the cheddar cheese. I just use the flat bread right off the packet. It's Nature's Bake brand but next time I might just want to either lightly steam or toast them before using.
To assemble, just slather sour cream over the bread and line it with lettuce leaves. Topped with avocado, cheese, onions and chicken. Slowly roll it up and enjoy!
We have one roll each and it's really filling. Capt'n Hook commented that such simple stuff can turned out to be such a treat for lunch. There you go, another lunch idea for you and me...
