Quick Chicken Lunches

Since it’s term break and I haven’t started my summer job, I’ve basically been idling the holidays away.

Not too bad a thing when I consider how, after another year or so in school, I’ll be consigned to a desk (God forbid, though!) for the rest of my career life. Doesn’t sound fun. At all. I need something to satisfy the secret adventurer in me.

So I’ve been taking this opportunity to cook and bake to my heart’s content.

For lunch, I often have chicken. So I’m sharing my simple and quick chicken lunches 🙂

Vegetable Stir-fry: Sweet Beans, Carrots, Onions and Eggs (and Oranges?)

Vegetable Stir-fry: Sweet Beans, Carrots, Onions and Eggs

A few months ago, I decided to pick up simple, healthy cooking. I admit I used to be really afraid of the kitchen, and a tad too apathetic as well — “What’s the big deal with cooking? It’s dirty work and time-consuming. I just want to have food on my plate and to eat it.”

Yet, as I’ve discovered, it’s really not that hard once you get the hang of it. In fact, I dare say I’ve been drawn to the Dark Side: addiction to cooking! 😀

Why I say this is particularly fun is because staying on campus means I’ve got limited grocery supplies in the fridge. Each weekend I’ll stock up at the local supermarket and whatever I get has to last me the week (painful, I know). And so I took it upon myself as a challenge to create healthy, yummy dishes in whatever combinations my taste buds deem fit. It’s all like a game, really!

Today’s feature is something I created last week for lunch.

It’s got the right mix of vegetable, protein and oil so I’m taking a bet here by saying it’s a pretty decent addition to your meal!
