Express Homecooked Dinner - 18 May 2015

Mondays are hectic for me. Besides having to make 6 trips (to and fro) to fetch Miss Sociable from her activities, I  have to dish out an express dinner so that the girls can eat by 5:45pm.  Sherilyn has hip hop dance class at 7pm.

Some of the items off my Express Dinner menu are braised chicken drumsticks or wings, spaghetti or pasta and sandwiches. These are easy and fast to whip up and can be quickly finished off too.  No fuss, no sweat, sustaining, wholesome and yummy at the same time!

Pan-fried chicken fillet with fried eggs, organic raw alfalfa sprouts, cucumber slices, organic cherry tomatoes, blueberries and cheese on super crispy sprouted wheat toasts.

Chicken fillet is marinated with garlic powder, sesame seed oil, garlic salt, pepper, soy sauce, ground coriander seeds and palm sugar.

The girls loved this crispy sandwich and were pretty generous with their praises for me, even from the most persnickety and hardest to pleased one! :)

Cost of this meal is around RM30.   I even have extra chicken to prepare another round of sandwiches for Cass and me for lunch tomorrow :)

Tip of the day from HFM: to buy  cheap chicken fillet, chicken drumsticks and wings, boneless chicken thighs for chicken chop, chicken innards or just about any part of the chicken, shop at NSK @ Jalan Kuchai Lama.

NSK sells an abundance and wide array of meat ranging from fish to seafood, chicken, pork and beef at very affordable prices (way cheaper than some wet markets and definitely cheaper than most of the regular supermarkets). You can select any part of the chicken or pork that you wish for whatever dishes that you plan to cook. Best of all, the meat are all nicely packed and labelled  for you, with date and all, so this saves you the trouble and time of having to pack and label your meat when you get back home.   And I love it that the place is air-conditioned and is so much more comfortable than buying meat from stinky and  wet markets :)
