My husband got a new job. YAY~!
And today is his first day to go to work. That also means we cannot have lunch together at home. Since I need to teach in the afternoon or evening, we cannot have dinner together either. He will have his lunch at canteen. So I decided to cook lunch and spare his part in a lunchbox. All he needs to do is to reheat it when he’s off work.
I cooked his favorite chicken teriyaki today. And with potato pancakes.
Chicken teriyaki is not that difficult. 3 main steps: 1. Sear the whole boneless chicken leg till tow sides turn golden brown. 2. Sauce part: 2 tsp light soy sauce, 1 tsp sweet cooking wine, 1 tsp dark soy sauce, 2 tsp honey. Add in enough water covers chicken. 3. Boil for 15-20 mins and reduce the sauce with high heat.
Cut the chicken into strips. And pour the sauce over it. Rice will absorb the flavor.
2 medium potato, (Peeled and shredded into thin strips. Boil in hot water for 1 min and drain)
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup water
Mix them in a big bowl.
Scoop batter with a spoon and fry till golden and crispy.
I cut them into halves before placing them into the lunch box.
To let him have more veggies, I also add cucumber slices, cherry tomato and boiled baby corn.
My husband finished them all.
