Recently, Mom Central presented me with an opportunity to try La Choy Creations.
Now, I'm not a big Chinese food eater, but I do like the kits that you can buy and prepare you own Asian-inspired dishes at home. As you might know, my pickiness has rubbed off on my children, and I always have to worry about whether or not they will try the other types of foods I introduce to them.
I was glad that I received the Sweet and Sour version, because I personally love anything Sweet and Sour, and most times when I get Chinese, I get Sweet and Sour shrimp. I also knew that this flavor would more than likely mean that my children would try it.
I picked up some boneless chicken breasts from my local grocery store, brought them home and cut them up into 1-inch cubes, fried them with 2 TBS. of oil, and then added the ingredients from the box.
The dish cooked quickly (in less than a half hour, which is very important to me!) and was very tasty! My children enjoyed it and so did I!
If my pc wasn't dead, I'd share a photo, but you all already know that my pc died a couple of weeks back.
