Dinner --sort of Iron Chef style.

I had a music rehearsal for Pirates of Penzance to get to tonight so I didn't have alot of time to cook dinner and, after work, we picked up my car from having the oil changed so that ate into my prep time as well. What to do? What to do? I have leftover green beans from dinner Monday night and some leftover chicken broth. . . I rummage in the cupboard and come up with leftover ramen style noodles and have the idea to make soup. I remember that I have one frozen teriyaki marinated chicken breast in the freezer and get it out to thaw in the microwave. Start the broth to boil. Remember that I had cut some carrots to snack on last night so I slice up some of those and green onion for garnish. After the broth boils, I throw in the noodles and cook for two minutes. Get the chicken breast out and chop it up. Throw some dried minced garlic and five spice powder in the broth and a dash of sesame oil, then add the green beans and carrots and cook a couple more minutes and add the chicken breast to finish cooking. I taste it and it needs something. I add a few dashes of Memmi Soup base. And then, as an after thought, some Sriracha hot sauce. Parse it into two bowls for myself and husband and garnish with the sliced green onion. Not bad for a quick dinner!

The Pittsburgh Savoyards is performing it in March. I haven't blogged about it yet. :-) So you caught that I mentioned it here first!
