From the Freezer to the Table in 10 Minutes!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty CalBRE #01492138





While grocery shopping last week, I was standing in front of the frozen dinner section contemplating which Chinese Stir-fry to buy. I usually purchase the stir-fry bag that is made by a nationwide Chinese Restaurant. The man standing beside me said “Try this brand as we really like it and it is more inexpensive” so I chose “Sesame Chicken”. 

Yum Yum!  Contessa Stir-Fry Looks good and very tasty!

Last night, I came home late and tired and said tonight I will try it. I did chop up a quarter of an Onion and sliced up a Chicken Breast I already had. I always change the recipes!

I was a little skeptical as I really like the other brand. I opened up the package and found a packet of rice and a packet of sauce. WOW, as the other one doesn’t have rice so I always have to start the rice in my mini rice cooker and that takes 20 minutes+.

So I threw the stir fry and in a skillet, chopped  ¼ of a medium onion and added an additional chicken breast (I always add chicken).  Stir fried it for 10 minutes, added the sauce and stirred for 30 seconds. In the meantime, I put the rice package in the microwave for 3 minutes.

Here is the finished result in approximately 10 minutes (1/2 the package):

Kristin's Dinner

So to all my ActiveRain members,I found the Contessabrand to be extremely tasty and the rice package was tender brown rice. The other brand does not include rice. I will definitely buy this meal again plus there are about 6 flavors to chose from. So I highly suggest this meal when you are in a hurry and especially during this horrible heat wave across our nation.

Try it and let me know what you think?

Kristin's Dinner

 *Yummy! I will buy this again plus I have the other half as leftovers for another night!

Thank you. It’s over 95 degrees here and I was wondering what to make for dinner. You just solved my problem. I’m going to whip up some Chicken and Veggie stir-fry over hot rice. Funny how one post can answer an unasked question. LOL

Yes they are very good and it doesn't heat up the kitchen. I think that is so important right now with the heat wave going on. Try and enjoy.
