Pineapple Orange Chicken
Now that the holidays are over and we have all had our fill of big meals that take lots of preparations, the Goddess on the Go invites you all to take it easy on meal preparations for a while. This is the perfect dish for returning to a normal (busy) schedule- easy and delicious.
The Goddess on the Go makes this quick dish wearing her winged high heels - it is that easy. It is the most tasty and scrumptious pineapple orange sauce you can imagine – your taste buds will be titillated. It makes a most impressive presentation, too. Another big advantage of this dish is the sauce can be made in the morning or the day before, so putting together the meal to eat takes very little time and effort. This dish could best be described as a vivacious Asian meal with the appearance of a labor of love.
The secret to this extraordinarily tasty sauce is Perdue’s Frozen Glazed General Tso’s Chicken Chunks. This product has wonderful Asian seasonings with just the right amount of a mild kick.
Reality check! The Goddess on the Go says that sometimes you have to accept that there are things you just can’t do better yourself and that it is all right to get some help in the kitchen. It is the sauce that is the key and you are making that yourself!
Always Stay in Touch with Your Inner Goddess!
Happy Cooking in the New Year!
