Trader Joe`s Kung Pao Chicken

2 years ago

I enjoy Asian cuisine, although I don`t always go out for it because it 1) many of the dishes are too high in calories for my liking, 2) most are loaded with sodium and 3) I find myself wanting to pick at different things instead of sticking with one solid dish. Although, over the last few years, I have found myself making Asian cuisines at home (whether homemade or store bought) and I find I can get the flavors I`m looking for in portion size.

Scanning the selection of frozen cuisine, I decided to pick up a bag of Trader Mings Trader Joe`s Kung Pao Chicken to give a try. The bag lists the dish as `a savory dish of tender dark meat chicken and mixed vegetables in a spicy soy ginger sauce.` The picture on the bag looked promising and the directions were cut and dry. This meant dinner would be done in a breeze before I knew it.

Following the directions on the bag, dinner was done in under 10 minutes. A little olive oil in the pan then I cooked up the chicken, once compelte I added in the vegetables and let them cook down a bit. Then I added in the sauce and then the peanuts. The dish itself is filling, flavorful and delicious. It tastes like take out so there`s no feeling of being gyped out of a meal you`ve been waiting for.

If you`re not a fan of spicy - you may not enjoy this. The dish is indeed hot ... borderline mouth on fire spicy. There are red chili`s in the dish (which I made sure to pick out before serving) and if you were to accidentally eat one, I can`t say you`d have a pleasant experience. A serving is truly plentiful and alongside some fried rice (I recommend Trader Joe`s Vegetable Fried Rice) and a vegetable of your choice it`s a complete and delicious meal.

A serving, 1 cup (150g) is 240 calories or 6 points plus values.
