The last stand...

So I'm leaving for the weekend, and I didn't want any of my produce to go to waste while I was away... so I ate it all.

Breakfast as usual... yogurt + fruits. This is the last of my fresh fruit (hence the frozen peaches), and the last of my almonds.

Then I realized, I still have to eat dinner tonight and then breakfast the next day!

With a thawed chicken breast, and no "fresh ingredients"... what the hell was I going to eat?

How about Chicken with Cayenne Peaches, Diced Onions, and Baby Corn?
Just a mish mash of random ingredients... frozen peaches, canned baby corn...

Chop/Dice 1/2 Onion - however size you like. ( I think I shoulda gone bigger.)
Saute in olive oil with 2 cloves crushed garlic.
Add peaches (however much you want) and let soften. Sprinkle cayenne pepper - depending on how much heat you like.
Cut chicken breast into bite sized pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Cook with onions and peaches. Add in two Dorot cubes of cilantro.
Add baby corn to the pan just to heat through.

Eat up!

The combination of all the flavors actually worked well for me. The sweet peaches with the savory onions, and an underlying tone of heat... with the cilantro that wakes up the tongue... you taste each flavor! Not a bad creation... if I do say so myself.
