I think I just had a foodgasm.

So I finally got my apartment squared away, and I invite mapjunkie over for dinner and a long-overdue Scrabble game. He makes some general requests as to food, so I go to work. Here was tonight's menu:

Salad: Fresh redleaf lettuce with peeled carrots (peeled directly into the salad - makes them nice and thin).
Side: Fresh corn on the cob (bi-color sweet).
Main: Orange-glazed chicken over couscous.
Desert: Blueberry crepes.

Yum.



Orange-glazed chicken
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" chunks
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
4 tbsp corn starch

Mix all ingredients except chicken in a bowl, whisk thoroughly.

Sautee chicken on high heat until it is completely cooked, with just a hint of brown on the outside. I used my electric wok, so a bit of oil helped with this.

Reduce heat to low, adding sauce, and simmer until sauce thickens (approx. 10-15 minutes).

Serve over rice or couscous.

Crepes
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp melted butter

Combine flour and salt in a mixing bowl, whisk briefly. Add eggs, milk, water and whisk until well-combined. Whisk in melted butter.

Chill for ~30 minutes to allow flour to absorb the liquids for more uniform cooking.

Cook in a small frying pan on medium-high heat, making crepes of about 3-4" in diameter, flipping once to ensure full cooking.

Fill with desired filling, fold as desired, top as desired.
