Laptop Lunches #199

Leftover rice and sweet-and-spicy chicken, cucumber slices, grape tomatoes, some ranch for dipping, lemon-flavored Greek yogurt with a sprinkling of shredded coconut, some apple slices, and half of a Swedish candy bar called "Pigall" (sent to me by lyktabento).

The sweet-and-spicy chicken was just some chicken thighs cut into bite-sized chunks, then marinated in a mixture of my "too sweet" stir fry sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sririacha sauce for a half hour or so, and simmered until done. It was good and also made great spicy noodles (with some leftover linguine) and spicy soup (with some instant rice noodle soup mix).

I liked the coconut with the yogurt. Yum!

"Pigall" comes in a packet with two half-bars like this. One fits perfectly in the Laptop Lunches box. It was a lot less dense than American candy tends to be--maybe the consistency of a Milky Way--and had something faintly crunchy in it. I liked it, but I never did figure out what the flavor was meant to be!

This was a bit strange as a cohesive meal--in that it really wasn't cohesive at all--but at least I hit the high points, anyway.


  1. I think the Pigall has airy hazelnut nougat inside, and some puffed rice for the crisp.
