Chicken Jalfrezi Sandwiches & Hummus (Day 27 Recap 4/8/20)

We were watching the not very good miniseries The Stranger on Netflix a couple of months back and someone in it mentioned he was eating a a chicken jalfrezi sandwich and I was intrigued. I don’t think it’s actually a popular thing anywhere (did they make it up for the show??) but I really wanted to try one. I had some chicken to use up and thought why not now? I didn’t have any store bought or leftover naan (the obvious choice for the bread part) and while I could make it myself, I thought I’d speed it up a bit and make it more quarantine friendly by making a stove top flatbread leavened with baking powder vs yeast. It turned out great and since I marinated the chicken last night, even with prepping the flatbreads, I made it in about 30 minutes for lunch. It was so good! I posted the recipe here. It was fun coming up with something entirely new just using what we had on hand.

Matt wasn’t feeling up to the vegetable soup I planned to make for dinner so he had noodles and cottage cheese again. I had a can of soup and some cucumbers with hummus.

Non-food related activities:

I finished Make Your Home Among Strangers by Jennine Capó Crucet. I have a couple of library books out on my Kindle but I can’t decide what to read next. I also have some physical books from the library left too. I don’t like to read them in bed (after finding a Cheeto in one!) so I always put them off. Normally they’d be overdue but the library keeps renewing them for me since they are closed.

We started the second season of Blood on Acorn but it wasn’t very compelling. The father is so different in this season! Maybe because it’s about his favorite daughter?
