I hate to admit this to all my awesome bloggers but I am a full time
Paralegal with 4 CRAZY attorney's and when I get home sometimes
I cheat a bit with my cooking!
My do it yourself Chinese was discovered from Publix when I came across
this box and thought "Hey this is way cheaper, and it does not look bad, and the calories are not too bad,
maybe I'll give it a whirl." And what do you know IT WAS AWSOME!
I LOVE Chinese food but the calories are ridiculous! Next time your in the mood to cheat get
Wanchai Ferry's Restaurant Favorites!
Matt and I have done the "Sweet and Sour Chicken" && the "Spicy Garlic Chicken"
** You can add Meat, Shrimp or Tofu**
I always season the meat, shrimp, chicken etc,
with the seasoning ABOVE! I never measure just go easy on the
Chili Flakes and Cayenne if you do not like spicy!!!
**You can substitute the Teriyaki Sauce for Soy**
I do not use the cornstarch that comes in the box
because it ends up frying your meat this is a little healthier ( but it SURE is good if you do use it)
I just add nonstick spray and cook away!!
Depending on the box the Sweet and Sour comes with Water Chestnuts and Pineapple
I added an extra can of pineapple and bamboo shoots!
You can get those in the Asian Isle at the Grocery Store
I make a veggie on the side as well I got this broccoli recipe from Tiffanie
Few Cloves of Garlic
Salt to Taste
Olive Oil to Coat
400 Degree's for 15 minutes!
My boyfriend loves it extra burnt so I keep it in a few extra minutes!
While your baking the Broccoli add the sauce and let it cook for a few minutes
The box comes with rice too!
I usually do not make it
I will get my own brown rice, but I was making weekly lunches for my boyfriend
What you see is two boxes and that I made into 6 lunches.
Throw in the cooked Broccoli
Throw in the chicken and viola!! 6 semi- homemade lunches!
* I only use one box if I am making dinner for 2*
The boxes cost $3.79 but you can go to Wanchei Ferry and print off some coupons for the box.
I always use the meat that is on sale Chicken happened to be $1.99 a lb
and the Broccoli was $2.00
I also throw in some egg rolls I usually get them when they are BOGO usually $2.50 a box.
6 full meals of Chinese for $16.08!!
Usually Matt and I spend AT LEAST $40 on Chinese
Just make sure you do not use cornstarch if you are trying to save on the calories
