Kung Pao Chicken with Bell Peppers
Here’s an easy chicken recipe you’ll definitely want to add to your dinner repertoire. A quick marinade tenderizes the chicken and infuses flavor in this healthy version of a take-out favorite. Adding a little oil to finish the marinade coats the chicken and helps keep it from sticking to the pan…………

Chongqing Chicken
Traditionally, Chongqing chicken is made by encasing the meat in crunchy batter, like popcorn chicken but better. To make it at home, we decided to mimic the effect with a simple cornstarch dredge and just a little oil, sparing you both time and the stress of deep-frying. Practiced eaters focus their chopsticks on the meat, avoiding the many chiles and Sichuan peppercorns that give the dish its tongue-tingling character, but we encourage you to risk the lovely agony…………..

Pineapple Pork Fried Rice
This one dish meal is bursting with texture and taste. Fresh pineapple, crisp-tender carrots and celery, and pungent ginger combine with pork in this homemade fried rice recipe that’s ready in 45 minutes, start to finish………….

Easy Vegetarian Stir-Fry Recipes

Healthy recipes for satisfying vegetarian stir-fry dinners.
Stir-fries are an easy way to get dinner on the table fast with minimal cleanup. Our healthy vegetarian stir-fry recipes pair fiber-rich vegetables with good sources of protein, such as seitan, tofu and nuts to give you satisfying meatless meals. Throw your favorite vegetables in a skillet and get cooking with our healthy vegetarian stir-fry recipes, like Vegetable Fried Rice and Sweet & Sour Tofu.



Garden-Fresh Stir-Fry with Seitan
Seitan’s toothsome texture and taste make it a perfect vegetarian stir-fry ingredient that even nonvegetarians will love. Make it a meal: Serve over rice noodles to soak up the rich sauce and mix up some lightly sweetened iced green tea to drink….

Vegetable Fried Rice
Nothing could be easier than this light version of fried rice. We’ve used instant brown rice, but if you have leftover cold rice or can pick some up at a Chinese restaurant on the way home, use that instead and skip Step 1….

Sweet & Sour Tofu
This Chinese-restaurant standard is a simple dish to prepare at home. If you like, add a pinch of crushed red pepper or chile-garlic sauce to give the sauce a little heat…..

Today’s Menu: Sweet & Sour Chicken w/ Sliced Chestnuts, Mini Carrots, and Diced Pineapple


I went to the store early this morning just looking for something that I had never made before. Nothing really didn’t appeal to me until I came across La Choy Creations Sweet & Sour Chicken! I had dinner! I had seen reviews of the La Choy dinners and they were all positive.


The dinner kit came; with 1 can pineapple and red peppers in a sweet & sour sauce, and 1 packet pre-measured long grain rice. I added 1 lb. thawed boneless, skinless chicken breast (cut into 1/2″ pieces), 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (for cooking chicken), and 1 1/2 cups water. Boil the rice, fry the chicken, add your sauces, fix any sides you would like, and serve the chicken on top of the bed of rice. I’ve left the full instructions at the end of the post. It came out delicious! The Sweet &Sour Sauce is just flat out fantastic. It has a perfect blending of spices, pineapple, and red peppers. Also it’s 320 calories and 45 carbs.


Along with the Sweet & Sour Chicken I prepared a side of Sliced Chestnuts that I added with the Chicken and Sauce, some Dole Diced Pineapple, and boiled Mini Carrots. Excellent and filling dinner! I’m looking forward to trying the boxed dinners. You can purchase La Choy Creations in three different flavors, Asian Fried Rice, Teriyaki Chicken and Sweet and Sour Chicken.


This dinner is nothing but GOOD! My parents aren’t big on meals like this but they both really enjoyed it and said they wanted to try the other meals also! The Sweet &Sour Sauce is just incredible! I think some time soon I’m going to try this with Pork instead of Chicken. As you can tell by the picture the 1 box makes a huge amount of food. Lots left for some great leftovers for lunch tomorrow. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding.
