This morning I took out a very frozen piece of chicken breast. I placed it (with the 2 plastic wraps) iin a bowl with lukewarm water. I almost never use the microwave oven to thaw food. I hope it is now thawed. If it is, I can make it sauteed with veggies. If it isn´t, I´ll have to make a soup. I can add a whole carrot and a couple of potatoes to eat a very healthy food as a main dish. Which would you prefer?

As it is chilly today, I think that I would go for soup!

Soup is a good idea when it is cold.

Did it! But I ate two of the small potatoes with lots of butter (I shouldn´t have done it), a hard boiled egg and some leftover pasta with pesto. I´ll take a mug of broth later on.

I don´t like to use the microwave for that either. I prefer to place the meat in a plastic wrap and in lukewarm water.

I finally cooked a chicken broth with small potatoes and whole carrots. I only ate 2 small potatoes with lots of butter. I discovered some pasta with pesto leftover from yesterday night. I preferred to finish that.

I never thought to place frozen chicken in water to thaw it - I just try to remember to take it out of the freezer in plenty of time. However, I'll remember your tip for next time.

It's really too hot here for soup today so I'd opt for the sauteed veggies version. I have chicken in the crock pot for dinner tonight

The sauteed chicken with the veggioes.. I am not one for eating a lot of soup in the summer.

It´s winter here. Or almost. And it is raining.

Well, I do not eat soup because I do not like soups, and I do not eat meat, but I would eat the vegetables.

I am not vegetarian, so I don´t have the amount of veggies at home that vegetarians or vegans do.

I'm late to pick one option. What do you do with the chicken? I hope you had a great lunch today.
