Asian Yumminess-- At home!


Last night I made a tasty, tasty dinner.  It was from a box.  GASP!  Crazy, I know!  Anyway, while going through the grocery store I noticed these Asian boxed dinners called Wanchai Ferry.  It was in a cool shaped box and said "just add chicken." The picture on the box looked yummy and I figured, for $4, if it was horrible, so be it.  I picked the Spicy Garlic Chicken.



Inside the box was a can of water chestnuts and bamboo shoots, a packet of seasoned cornstarch, a packet of jasmine rice and a baggie of sauce. 

I put the rice in a pot with water.  I cut up chicken tenderloins into 1" cubes and shook them up with the cornstarch.  Then the chicken was sauteed in a little olive oil.  When it was cooked through, the canned veggies and sauce were added. 

Easy peasy!

And, oh my gosh, WOW, it actually looked and tasted great!  I was shocked.  I checked the nutritional information and it's not even horrible for you.  It wasn't nearly as high in sodium as other prepackaged foods.  

I gotta get some more.  We don't have chinese delivery out in the farmlands.

Wanchai Ferry Recipe Kits
These kits have just been launched in the UK - one of the nice things about them is that you can use beancurd or any meat, fish or seafood you like with them, and you've got all the sauces and rice or noodles in the box. There's a smart new website too - Wanchai Ferry Recipe Kits
