Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!
Usually, I share a recipe but today I wanted to share a new find. A few weeks ago the kids and I were in Costco and we found a new item. Frozen Organic Pot Stickers.
When it comes to pre-packaged meals…….. it’s not something I really buy. Usually because of the ingredients and if it has good quality ingredients the sodium is usually really high. So for me, these types of meals get left in the store.
Then I’ll make a promise to the kids to try and re-create it at home with healthier ingredients. Which doesn’t always happen right away.
Thankfully……I found something that I could actually put in the cart, take home and have prepared in minutes.
Now all I can do is hope…….that it taste good and that we all like. Is that asking for too much?
Well, I am here to tell you…..that I now believe in miracles…lol….because we all loved them.
Have any of you tried these or have any other recommendations, please let me know?
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Hello Lovely Readers today’s post is all about a semi-homemade dish. I love Trader Joes’s Mandarin Orange Chicken. It just needs a little jazzing up to make it taste “GREAT”.
So let’s get started
You will need 2 packages of the Mandarin Orange Chicken. Each package comes with 2 packets of the sauce.
You will cook the chicken in the oven according to the directions.
Next open up the 4 packets of sauce ( 2 from each package)
Pour the sauce in a large bowl an add the following:
1/2 tsp black pepper, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder (feel free to add less or omit anything you don’t want…..we like the heat).
1/4 cup of agave nectar
1/4 cup of yellow, red and green peppers
Mix every thing together until well incorporated. Once the chicken is done and cooled break the larger piece into smaller ones.
Add the chicken to the bowl and coat the chicken with the sauce.
Serve with brown rice and stir-fry veggies and enjoy.
Another thing you can do with this dish is leave out the sauce and serve as nuggets….I do this for my kid’s and they love it. Don’t throw the sauce away keep it in the freezer and use it on chicken wings. Season the wings and marinate in the sauce overnight and bake on 475 for 45 minutes to an hour.
I hope you enjoy.
Until Next Time,
Yesterday was grocery shopping day. The stores that I love are Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and Wegmans. So at TJ’s I came across a new item. Which the store clerk said, just came in the night before. So I dropped 2 of them into the shopping cart. Hoping they will taste delishhhh.
I tried them this morning and I’m in “LOVE” They have the perfect amount of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon flavor without being over powering…..so glad that I gave them a try and that they taste terrific. TJ’s always has something new and delicious to try. It’s the one store where the list just goes out the window….lol.
Enjoy & Until Next Time,
