Something I Tried: Gardein Mandarin Crispy Chik'n
I really like the Gardein Chik'n products I have tried so far, so I picked up a bag of the Mandarin Crispy Chik'n to sample. If a complete meal from-a-freezer-bag comes with sauce, I like to add my own ingredients to bulk it up so I get a few more servings out of it. I sautéed the chik'n pieces according to the packages, and added fresh pineapple chunks and cilantro in the last 2 minutes of cooking. I added the packet of sauce, a dash of soy sauce, and served it with fluffy jasmine rice. Real talk: this was sooooo good...the chik'n tasted so much like take-out I felt I had pulled a fast one. My addition of the pineapple was definitely not necessary, but elevated the dish to a-notha-level. Go try this!!!!
