Trader Joe's Orange Chicken

Tonight we tried the Trader Joe's Orange Chicken.  It's in the frozen section for $4.99.  This item was at the top of the list for top rated Trader Joe's items.  

I have to say, we really enjoyed this dish.  It was easy to prepare and had great flavor to it.  You put it in the oven, heat up a sauce and mix the 2 together.  We served it with their jasmine brown rice and their frozen green beans (a constant favorite in this home).  For an easy meal at home, this is a great one to try!

The chicken was real, which is always nice to bite in to.  The sauce was flavorful.  The chicken had a nice crunch to it and is lightly breaded.

It tasted like Chinese take out (well, better than a lot of Orange Chicken Chinese take out I've tried).  Yet, it's only $4.99 for the bag, which could feed 3 adults.  For the meal, with rice and beans, you are looking at approximately $5.50.
