What a busy week I have! O is on a business trip to New Jersey – I am hoping that he will come home with some news about our future… He did ask me if I wanted to join him and visit New York City during the days when he works, but to my disappointment this is the first week ever in Puerto Rico that I need to be here!! Talk about bad timing! Hopefully he will go back in August and I will get to join him!
Since I came back from Europe in March I have been working on a project for the Alliance Francaise which culminates tonight and tomorrow night with two perfume events. A famous French perfumer (creator of perfumes), Christophe Laudamiel has come to give presentations on the sense of smell and the perfume industry, and afterwards the participants will be served a three-course meal in a fancy French restaurant. We had the press conference this morning and it was absolutely fascinating to listen to the perfumer!! I took notes like a mad journalist and hope to find time to write a blog post as soon as possible. In the meanwhile, I hope you like this improvised super easy lunch recipe that I threw together a few weeks ago.
My super easy chicken & rice lunch (or dinner) for one
1 chicken breast, newly fried or cold left-over (fried with salt, pepper and some herbs such as basil or oregano)
1 portion of rice, newly cooked or cold left-over
1 small can of fried red peppers
a few tablespoons of pesto
a few tablespoons of French Dijon mustard
Mix together the pesto and mustard (you might recognise this mixture from my pesto salmon recipe – I love it!!). Cut the red pepper into small pieces and mix with the rice. Slice the fried chicken breast and place on top of the rice. Spread the pesto-mustard mixture on the chicken. If you are using cold left-overs, microwave for 1-1½ minute before serving!
