Tasty Tuesday: Snack Attack

Hey, guys!

Earlier today I was looking for something to snack on -- dinner wasn't ready yet, and I was hungry. Do you guys do this thing where you go to the kitchen, check out if there's anything to eat in the fridge, find out there's nothing, then come back again to check? Yup, I did that, and on my second look, I found some leftover chicken from last night's dinner.

Then, I saw some magazine scans from way back, and hey, I have some recipes I could try... and I could use our leftover chicken! ;)

Chicken Wrap -

This is the kind of recipe that we can play around with. I would use it as a starting recipe, and add or omit some ingredients according to what I have on hand. It's a healthy recipe that we can prepare for ourselves, for our family, and for our friends. If someone's a vegetarian, we can do away with the chicken.


Chicken Tacos -

I love having Taco Tuesdays with my family, and this seems like a delicious and fun change to our usual beef tacos.


Besides these yummy chicken recipes, I also found a grilled cheese sandwich recipe:

Moscone Grilled Cheese Sandwich -

I think this would be a really really delicious twist to our regular grilled cheese -- fontina and mozzarella cheese = yum!

Like the first two recipes, this is an easy one to work around with. If the ingredients it calls for are not easily available, we can always find a substitute ingredient. :)


Next time I get hungry, these are definitely three recipes I will try to whip up.

Do you have go-to recipes for when you suddenly get hungry?

  9. I love chicken wraps, easy to do!!!

  10. Lovely recipes but just seems too much effort for me! You can get these things call Toastie bags and you just have to make a cheese or whatever sandwich and put it in there and you have a lovely cheese toastie!

  11. The Chicken Wrap recipe looks pretty easy for noob cooks like me. Will give it a try soon. Thanks for sharing.
