Two easy suppers

Continuing my recent culinary postings....

I've made two good suppers recently with pretty low effort. The first was a version of chicken lettuce wraps, a dish I like from restaurants like Mama Fu's (now departed from my area) and Pei Wei (also not in my area). This recipe showed up in the AJC "5:30 Challenge" column, for recipes with no more than 5 ingredients that take 30 minutes or less to prepare. Very good, really. I'll add green onions next time for more color, and I need to think about more efficient ways of producing "chopped" raw chicken than my rather slow manual cutting into matchsticks then shorter pieces. The bottled dressing (which I've been rather skeptical of as it started appearing in Kraft's ads/recipes almost as often as their Italian, surprisingly did produce a tasty sauce all by itself. Could be spiced up if desired (maybe some chili paste with garlic...), but didn't need it.

The second supper was even easier. A bag of Trader Joe's Prig Khing green beans stir-fried with cut up boneless skinless chicken thighs. Nice amount of spice, good flavor, ultra easy.
