Sam's Club Sells General Tso's Chicken?

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Sam's Club sells General Tso's Chicken in a frozen bag. Basically, you throw the chicken on a cookie sheet and cook at 400 degrees - flipping the meat halfway through. While that's going on, you take the packet of sauce they send you and place it in a bowl of warm water.

I really wanted to like this recipe. My step-son (who's fully grown) took his dad (my husband) to Sam's Club where they bought a multitude of items. Step-son ensured his dad it was so much better than Trader Joe's Orange Chicken.

I was skeptical.

So I gave myself a plate of it.
Flavor?  Eh, it's okay.
Difficulty?  SUPER EASY.
End result?  Blech.

Not much of a recipe for this - purchase the box of Kahiki General Tso's Chicken.

Follow the directions on the side of the box.

Make some yummy rice (sushi rice preferred, but tonight I just Jasmine rice). Heaven. Because the chicken cooks at about the time does, it's easy to balance back and forth between.

Dish it all up and enjoy!

And now for the pictures:

Getting ready to open the box.....

Let's take a peek at the nutrition facts.


FOR REAL??? THAT MUCH SODIUM??

No, thank you, sir/madam.

Ugh. I am SO drinking a lot of water tomorrow.

What I did NOT like? The level of sodium. I didn't see how much (or how little) there was. All I do know is that my tummy felt bloated and I just didn't "feel" right. Didn't take me long to figure out the chicken dinner was the culprit. Ugh. My tummy feels painful.

Better cooking tomorrow!! :)
