These past couple of days, I've been working on a movie set as some of you may know from my tweets on twitter. So I've been dealing with waking up at 3 o'clock in the morning and having 5:30am call times, which means the time in which I have to show up at the studio. Long days and seemingly long hours meant that I wouldn't get home until around 8 or 9 at night, only to have to wake up in a few short hours. That left me with no time to cook up an meal of any kind. (*insert teardrop and puppy dog face*) The food on set wasn't really blogworthy as it wasn't all that great. I think I've mentioned before that catered food on productions are always a hit or miss. Sadly, this was a miss. But I did enjoy my time on the set. Makes me love what I do for a living even more.
I realized that I hadn't written up a post for today. I'd feel weird, if I didn't post anything. I could have done my usual food facts, but I'm saving those for the next few weeks. So, in came my lovely mom to the rescue. I had mentioned to her that there was some bok choy in the veggie compartment and she offered to cook something up. Have I mentioned how much I love my mom? I get my love for cooking from her.
She used a pack of ramen noodles, we had lying around. Not using the seasoning packet. As for the other ingredients: Chicken breast, garlic, onion and some soy sauce. The end result is this lovely and simple dish. Can you see a slight resemblance in cooking styles here?
Bok Choy Noodles
1 pack ramen noodles (minus flavoring packet)
2 bok choy
1 chicken breast
1 garlic clove (minced)
1/2 sweet onion (diced)
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
Cut the chicken breast into chunks. Size is to your choosing. Also, cut the bok choy into slices.
In pan on medium heat, saute the garlic and onions. Season with a dash of ground pepper.
Add in the chicken and cook until no pink is left. Then add in the soy sauce. Saute after for another couple of minutes. Then add in the bok choy slices and saute until the leaves a shrunk in size.
Bring to a boil some water in a sizable pot. When boiling, add the ramen and cook until noodles a tender. Drain the water and place the noodles on a plate.
Scoop bok choy mix over and enjoy!
