Chinese Orange Chicken-Response.. [moved from Los Angeles board]

Last week somebody had a hard time finding a good Orange Chicken since we dont have many good Chinese spots in the Valley.

Well, my parents suggested that I try the Trader Joe's frozen Orange Chicken that you prepare and believe it or not its some of the best stuff I've ever tasted.

Give it a try,

      We love it. It's called Mandarian Orange Chicken here. But it's not quite spicy enough so I took the cashiers suggestion and added a little of their sweet and spicy mustard and a couple of dashes of tabasco to it. Really brings it up several notches.

      He also said that some employees have been known to fight over the last bag of it at the end of the night.

        Speaking of....Costco has a frozen orange chicken that we frequently buy. A huge bonus is that my son can prepare an entire meal of that, some rice, and frozen veggies. It's pretty tasty too!
