Chicken in Lettuce Cups

With the cold weather and holidays, we have been indulging in fairly heavy and (fat) rich meals, so we decided to have a light dinner last week and decided to have diced chicken wrapped in lettuce. The problem was, I was out of hoisin sauce. So, we improvised a bit this time, and made our…

Chicken Wonton and Vegetable Soup

Chicken Wonton and Vegetable Soup

The second dish I made with the chicken dumplings is soup, with plenty of vegetables. The weather has gotten cold again, another reason why I didn’t feel like going anywhere today, and soup seemed just right for a light but warm supper. 8-10 cups chicken broth1 onion, sliced3 cloves garlic, minced5-6 round slices of fresh…
