Like it hot, hot, hot? Then you should try Wanchai Ferry Brand General Tso’s Spicy Garlic Chicken.
This complete meal for two is found in the freezer section of your food store. And while there’s a few more steps in preparation compared to other frozen ‘dinner in a bag’ meals, this one which boasts a preparation time of 14 minutes was certainly not bland or boring.
When our Quickie Gourmet pulls out a bag from the freezer to make a quick meal, more than two steps in preparation makes it seem complicated. In reality, it was a simple preparation that resulted in a good dinner for two that left the lips smoldering.
The only step that our Quickie Gourmet found in excess of making the preparation super simple was the step requiring cooking of the breaded chicken which had to be removed from the pan before heating the vegetables and the sauce. After the vegetables are cooked the chicken is then added back to the pan to continue cooking.
The rice is steamed separately in a microwave bag and tasted better than some other instant rice type meals we have tried.
The vegetables – carrots, red peppers and water chestnuts were crispy without being tough – nothing mushy!
Overall, it was a generous portion for two without being too much, the chicken was tender and the sauce was hot, hot, hot!
