The other day I took the only food left in my fridge – a few pieces of chicken.

I had no idea what to do with it. So I sent an email to a friend who likes to cook.

“Have you any suggestions on what to do with chicken cutlets? Hmmm … I’m cooking for myself and my mother.”

He replied:

1) – cut into cubes 1 / 2 “cubes, add olive oil, salt, oregano,” Italian Seasoning “to taste Chop the onions, carrots (very fine), the mushrooms, pineapple chunks, fresh tomatoes, and jumped on. hot fire. Serve over pasta to sauté Italian.

2 – leave them whole, place them in a 2 “deep pan or baking dish, cover with 1 / 2 bottle of ranch dressing, add 2 large handfuls of grated parmesan (not the powdered stuff, the new hard parmesan cook one hour (donner. or take) and serve over pasta or baked potatoes.

3) – Seasonal and salt to taste, fry pan over high heat, the server on a fresh salad with Thai peanut dressing better than you can find.

4) – Put the chops and the sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap and seal. Put all the chops in a zip bag, press out the air. Rear seal, stick the freezer, go out to eat.

I laughed at the idea No. 4 and has emailed back to let you know that I would try the suggestion No. 1. Except that I had to go shopping for the rest of the ingredients – mushrooms, pineapple and carrot … etc … My refrigerator was empty.

He replied:

Sautéed Italy is my “what is left in the fridge?” prescription. Add anything you want. Be careful with the pineapple. It’s a strong flavor, not to use too. Season to taste. The kitchen is improvisation at its best.

Ready to start cooking, I went grocery shopping. Okay … Okay … I do not go shopping. Instead, I had the store deliver my groceries. When I finished preparing the meal, I garnished with cilantro, my favorite herb (parsley would have been nice, too.). And since I like a little hot, I added a little chili sauce. Loved it! Delicioso! I need to cook something more Improv, for sure.
