PostHeaderIcon #TaiPeiFood is Good Fortune in Every Box

Tai Pei Review - DelightfulChaos.com

It’s pretty funny that I love Chinese food but I hate most vegetables. Most people don’t understand how that is even possible. Easy, RIBS! Okay, I love pork fried rice too but I do pick the vegetables out. For the select things that I do eat, ordering in tends to be pretty pricey for the boys and I. I like to have left over for the next day as well.

What if you could enjoy an authentic Asian-style takeout experience right from home? Tai Pei features restaurant-inspired varieties of frozen Asian-style cuisine, packaged in a fun, takeout-style box that’s ready to eat in just minutes. Now that’s “Good Fortune in Every Box!” It is available in single-serve entrées and single-serve appetizers and multi-serve appetizers.  As far as selection goes, it offers more excitement and adventure in frozen food.

I really liked the Bourbon Chicken and the General Tso’s chicken. These are two of my favorites when we order in. Below you will find the flavors available. I would be so surprised if you couldn’t find at least one that you were interested in trying!

PostHeaderIcon Less Stress with Sun-Bird Seasonings (#Giveaway)

It’s a crazy week around here and the weekend has proved to be no different.  My boys come home on Sunday so I am trying to get a few dinners prepped, beds changed, clothes washed and tons more! You would think with them being gone there would be a bit more down time. Yea right! Only thing that changes is not waking up at 6 am (No complaints!)

PostHeaderIcon Recipe: Sun-Bird General Tso’s Chicken

This is something that I normally eat when we go to our local Chinese buffet. Of course, it didn’t taste like it did at the restaurant… It was better! Please keep in mind when making this that it is a little spicy. I don’t like my food very spicy and this was just about my limit. Royal (9) was his usualy dramatic self stating that his mouth was on fire with each bite lol but Spencer (4) ate it right on down without one complaint. One drank milk and the other had water and there was no gulping it down because the chicken was to spicy.

For this recipe I actually used 2 packets of the Sun Bird General Tso’s Chicken Spice mix and doubled everything. One pound of chicken wouldn’t have been enough for us. The package I has was 2.7 pounds and this was still plenty of sauce for that! I also added a bit more water. Below are the package instructions and then how I made it.

You can buy this at just about any major food retailer in the Asian food section. All of my local stores carry it.

Ingredients (Package Directions))

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 packet Sun Bird General Tso’s Chicken Mic

(This was how I made it)

  • 1/2 cup and 1/8 cup flour
  • 2.5 – 3lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 5 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 5 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 packets Sun Bird General Tso’s Chicken Mix

It’s easy to prepare General Tso’s Chicken with Sun-Bird seasonings. The spice and seasonings in the sauce will turn out perfectly every time. (Official Instructions are below the pictures) You can serve this with white rice. Since the boys aren’t big fans (and honestly I was out and didn’t realize it!) I made Chicken Rice-A-Roni with it and it went well together.

Directions:

  • Add flour to resealable plastic food bag.
  • Add chicken chunks and seal.
  • Shake bag to coat chicken evenly.
  • Combine seasoning, sugar, soy sauce and water; blend and set aside.
  • Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat until hot.
  • Add flour-coated chicken and cook until evenly browned. (Do not dump the bag in, you will end up with clumps of flour. Use a slotted spoon or tongs.)
  • Stir sauce mixture and add to skillet with chicken.
  • Bring sauce to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until desired consistency.
