Mason jar is a wonderful item that you can use it for many purposes. I use a lot of the jars to store my dried food as well as canned food. I also love the decoration that mason jar offers while storing fresh food. So as one of the Meal In A Jar fan, I would love to share you one recipe that I make for lunch. It is full of nutrition, provides you enough energy and it is healthy.
Fish cake and ginger chicken – Meal in a jar
Fish cake: 1 unit of 16 oz (you can buy in an Asian grocery store, about $5/each)
Chicken breast: 1 pound
White rice: 3 cups
Baby carrot: 1 pound
Okra: 2 pounds
Ginger: 1 small piece, size of 2 match boxes
Fish sauce: 1 tbs
Step 1: Cook the rice: use the rice cooker, put 1 inch water above the rice level and hit the “cook” button
Step 2: Cook the chicken breast: Cut the chicken to small piece, slice the ginger. Put all the ginger and chicken in one pot, season with salt, fish sauce and let’s cook for 20 minutes, you can open the lid if there is a lot a water. When the water is gone then the chicken is done.
Step 3: Cook the okra: put the okra to the boiling water, when it is almost boiling again, take all the okra to the plate
Step 4: Slice the fish cake to small pieces.
Now all the ingredients are ready. You will need to nail them to the jar. Is that easy?
