Braised Chicken Bowl

Thanks for ordering!

Do you guys remember life lessons or words of wisdom that your parents bestowed upon you? I only have a couple burned into my memory. There’s a really good one that my dad said to me one time, probably after he caught me cutting corners while chorin’, or lying about doing my homework or something. Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching. I have since learned that it was actually C. S. Lewis that coined the phrase, but it’s a lot cooler when it’s my dad saying it. Another one that he says all the time is “variety is the spice of life”. That one was plagiarized directly from a William Cowper poem, but who even cares. Words are not property. These two quotes apply to nearly every scenario that life can present, and when we prove them to be true, magical things happen. Thanks dad! Can’t wait to say the same things to my little one (soon!). Tonight’s dinner does all the right things, and has plenty of variety. Textures, flavors, and temperatures collide in perfect harmony tonight. I am going to urge you to only reheat the chicken thigh, because everything else is so good cold- but I respect your decisions. Cold marinated eggplant kicks ass. It’s such a great texture, and with the noodles, game over. Same with the sweet potatoes and cukes. Tangy cool dressing to mix it all up with, and a perfectly braised chicken thigh as the cherry on top. Pluck off the thigh, and toast under the broiler, toaster oven, or microwave. Rip the bone off, and shred the chicken into the bowl. Toss it all together, and enjoy. Hot sauce recommendation is sriracha today. Go crazy, and enjoy! <3 WECO
