Chicken à la sorry-I-don't-have-that

It's a delight to cook for scarlatti.

Slightly edited for dramatic effect ...

"What is there to cook?"
    "Well, there's some chicken in the fridge."
"Excellent. Where do you keep the lemon juice?
    "I'm sorry, I don't have any."
"Ah. Soy sauce?"
    "No, sorry."
"Cornflour?"
    "Umm ... no."
"Any flour at all? Arrowroot?"
    "No."
"Okay."

*pause*

"What have you got?"
    "I have mushrooms."
"Great! Where's the butter?"
    "Ummm ..."


We had chicken, red peppers, onions and mushrooms stir-fried with garlic salt, oregano and nutmeg. We pinged a jacket potato as well. And it was followed by tangerine-flavoured jelly beans.
