General Tso’s Chicken w/ Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

Dinner Tonight: General Tso’s Chicken w/ Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

It was Biscuits and Gravy to start the day around here! I normally have Gravy with toast but Mom wanted Biscuits so Biscuits it was. After Breakfast I took Mom up to a battery store not far from
here.She needed a new watch battery. From there stopped by the bank for her and back home. This afternoon Mom went over to see Dad and I had to stay home and wait for the delivery of Dad's new lift chair we bought him. It arrived later in the afternoon, it's really a nice chair and will help him to get up from the sitting position. Now we just have to get him strong enough to come back home! For Dinner tonight something new - Kahiki General Tso’s Chicken. I prepared General Tso’s Chicken w/ Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots.

While at Meijer last week I came across some Kahiki General Tso’s Chicken in the frozen food
section. It looked and sounded good plus there was 340 calories and 32 net carbs in it, which isn't bad at all for General Tso’s Chicken. So I bought a bag of it and had it in the freezer.

To prepare it I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Removed the Sauce Pouch and sat in a bowl of hot water to thaw. Next I took a baking sheet and lined it with foil and sprayed Pam on it. I placed the Chicken evenly on the sheet and baked them for 20 minutes turning them after 10 minutes. Internal temperature of Chicken was 165 degrees, used an instant read thermometer. Removed it from the oven and let it stand 1 minute before serving. I drizzled the thawed sauce across the pieces and served. I found a winner here! Nice size pieces of Chicken, nice seasoning, and excellent sauce! I'll have to keep a bag in the freezer for sure.  

For one side dish I microwaved some Uncle Ben’s Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice. It comes in a
single serving microwavable container. Just heat for 45 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy. I also heated up a can of Kroger Whole Baby Carrots. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Kahiki General Tso’s Chicken
Tempura white meat chicken with a zesty Asian-style sauce.

General Tso's Chicken is made with all-natural white meat chicken that is tempura battered and then fully-cooked. It comes with a zesty ginger and garlic flavored sauce. Each carton contains 30 oz. of tempura chicken and 10 oz. of General Tso's sauce. It's a great main course for dinner; just add rice.
Or it can be used as a great appetizer for parties. Kids love this product too!
