DECONSTRUCTING MY CHINESE TAKE-OUT #CHICKEN/BROCCOLI WRAP

I had some pent-up energy in reserve. You see, I had been kicking up some moves earlier on this morn.

With all that pep and happy hormones flowing, I decided to take them over to my humble kitchen. Breakfast was on my mind. Had some take-out Szechuan chicken (which by the way was supposed to be spicy, it wasn’t). Oh, I wasn’t happy. What were they thinking? It has been the second time.  Of course, along with same was some steamed white rice. Had a little of that and still had  a large portion in place.

I had a plan; a perfect one. Decided to make-over my Chinese dish. First, I abandoned the rice. Maybe, I’ll use that for a few rice balls sometime. But anyway, I fetched my whole-grain wrap. It was quite a large size and packed with 30 grams of whole-wheat. I was happy.

The chicken thigh pieces in the Szechuan dish were quite tender and flavorful. The dish also consisted of mushrooms, bell peppers, bamboo shoots, onion and broccoli which were still crispy. I heated my left-overs for a few minutes stove-top and added a serving of broccoli I had in the freezer.

I smiled as I watched the ingredients soaked up the brown sauce. I layered same on my whole-grain wrap and folded my way to an awesome and delectable place. Deconstructing was a very good idea. I bit in my wrap and used part of the wrap to soak up oozing sauce that escaped.

All I needed was a cup of hot java. I was over-the-moon. Salud!
