As you may know, I’ve got kids in two different schools this year. Madison’s a freshman in high school (I know, where has the time gone!), and Will’s in middle school (he’s going to a Catholic school in the area). However, this means two different starts times, two different end times, and two different activity schedules. Does your head hurt just from reading that? I know mine does. Adding in that mess is Bill’s chaotic work schedule. He can be home at 4 pm one night and 10 pm the next. I do like him to have as warm dinner whenever possible.
What my family needs many nights for dinner is something quick, something easy enough that the kids can make it themselves if needed, and something that tastes good, and that’s where Tai Pei comes in.
Tai Pei Asian cuisine entrées are made with clean ingredients flavor-infused rice and no additives, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors. I can stand behind that and have my family eat this for dinner. Best of all is that there are 10 delicious options, so there is something for everyone!
Some of our family favorite has to be the Orange Chicken! I personally love how much protein it has!
The new packaging was designed to serve the perfect portion size to satisfy your cravings, while allowing enough room for the tasty ingredients to steam perfectly.
You can even take these meals and incorporate them into a larger recipe instead of just eating them on their own. For example, here’s my Rice wrapped Orange Chicken recipe!
Rice Wrapped Orange Chicken
Wrap your favorite Tai Pei flavor in Rice flour! It is sumptuous as it looks appetizing.
- 1 package Tai Pei Orange Chicken
- Fresh lettuce
- 1 pack of Spring Rolls skin available in the Asian aisle of major grocery stores.
- Soak spring rolls skin on a plate with warm water making sure that both sides are slightly damp.
- Lay wrapper flat, in a row across the center, lay one lettuce leaf.
- Add two tablespoonful of cooked orange chicken on lettuce leaving two inches uncovered on each side.
- Fold uncovered sides inward, then tighly roll the wrapper, beginning at the end with the lettuce. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
- Serve with plum sauce or soy sauce with lemon.
Lastly, veg out, don’t stress out. Dinner is covered by Tai Pei. They even have a full lineup of appetizers and snacks too! To learn more about Tai Pei entrees and where to buy them, visit www.taipeifood.com/dragon or www.taipeifood.com/find-tai-pei.
