Tonight’s meal: Barbecue [Flavored] Chicken with Ramen /Vegetable stirfry and crispy Fried Chicken Skin.
The chicken was cooked Sous Vide (73.8 Celsius) with a BBQ Dry rub, then seared and glazed with homemade barbecue sauce (left over from previous use).
The chicken skin was rendered in a frying pan and finished in an oven…resulted in something close to a pork rind.
For the noodle stir-fry, I cut two carrots and one zucchini on a Japaneese Mandolin on the medium setting. I boiled the [un-seasoned] water for the noodles, dropped them and covered for two minutes. then strained the noodles and poured the liquid over the vegetables. I put the noodles into the hot pan that the chicken had been seared in, strained the vegetables and added them to the noodles. Finally, I seasoned the noodles with the chicken flavored MSG packet that came with the ramen.
This meal was delicious! Total Cost: $1.72
As a side note…My immersion circulator is having some issues…time to troubleshoot.
