Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken …VEGAN!
Do you need to try Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken? Is it worth it? After all, some of those fake meat packages are pretty poor tasting! Well, for me to even consider a review, something has to either be really bad or really good and this my friends is really freaking good! Like, really freaking good. If I had to put together a vegetarian starter pack, this would be in it! Hey, vegetarian starter pack…that’s a good idea! Post coming soon!
So has the smell or your sweet memories of eating Panda Express orange chicken have you rethinking your diet? Or maybe just cause a few tears on a daily basis? Lol, well dry your tears and head to Trader Joe’s for something that will make you forget there was ever a problem to start with. And honestly, this Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken is better… YA! I said it…better!
So my husband bought about 12 packages and there they sat in our freezer for a couple weeks until one day I decided to try it and then I wanted one a day forever because I had become obsessed! This meal is super-duper satisfying! Keep in mind though, you shouldn’t eat this everyday (although you will want to!-). It’s not exactly clean eating but once in a while it’s great!
Here’s How I Prepared Mine!
- Steam 1 cup of quinoa.
- Steam 1 orange sweet potato.
- 1-2 tbsp. in frying pan.
- Cook on medium heat for about 8 min. then on high until the skin is darkened. The crispier, the better.
- Put a scoop of the quinoa on your plate and top with the Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken and then pour the sauce packet over it (best part). The smash up some sides of sweet potato and avocado! YUM! YUM! YUM!
This is a great meal to use as a cheat-meal or make a ton for a big group of friends! What’s even better is to serve the Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken up for your vegetarian-skeptical friends! They may start rethinking their diet afterwards! ;p
