I am really liking this new Gardein brand. The food is really good, the price isn't bad (for vegetarian food), and it has low/no soy. (Soy contains a lot of estrogen, which can cause all sorts of health problems. Researchers generally agree that you're not at a big risk unless you eat a lot of soy--like vegetarians--so I try to avoid it when I can.)
This is Mandarin Chik'n, and it was tasty! It cooked up very quickly in my trusty Lock & Lock frying pan. Matt had at least 3 helpings, and Caleb declared it "good." Matt even asked if we could have this again. Score!!
We put the chik'n over rice, which I boiled in my Lock & Lock sauce pan. Water heats much faster in these, which cuts down on prep time during the week--always an added bonus!
I have started putting all of our side dishes in L & L right off the bat. It's not like we have to be fancy or anything, and it's a whole lot easier to serve the food in the same container it will be stored in! I like using the Boroseal glass containers for foods that will need to be reheated. I served applesauce and spinach (yes, Caleb and Matt both eat spinach--with ketchup!) as sides with this dinner. I honestly can't remember what's in the plastic containers. :)
Voila! It's a quick, easy, healthy (each serving of chik'n is 2 servings of veggies!) dinner that my family enjoyed!
