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.
