|Mandarin Orange Chicken on jasmine rice, steamed broccoli, orange slices.|
I tend to make food from fresh ingredients. Sometimes I will freeze those fresh ingredients myself, but then I know how long they've been in the freezer. I don't often have frozen dinners.
Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken is a definite exception. The only Mandarin Chicken I've had better than this was in Chinatown in San Francisco, and this one goes from freezer to plate in about 15 minutes. I love it. Frozen precooked chicken and sauce cook for about 10 minutes in a skillet with a little sesame oil. I often throw in broccoli or asparagus, and serve it over rice.
For lunch today I had last night's leftovers over jasmine rice, with steamed broccoli and cara cara oranges on the side.
