I am a Trader Joe's freak. I don't know how people lives in places where it doesn't exist. I'm sick as a dog again & cooking is not on my agenda when I feel this way, but Trader Joe's has been saving my life the last two days.
I've had a cold, bronchitis, & now a sinus infection for the last 2 1/2 weeks. I felt great on Sunday so I went to Trader Joe's to stock up on food & prep for the week. Two new things I bought that I've never tried before were the Chicken Breast Medallions in Red Curry Sauce & frozen Kimchi Rice. Both were so good! The chicken had a great amount of sauce & was creamy with great flavor. The Kimchi rice had pieces of cabbage & onion in it & had a tangy heat to it. Definitely buying both again.
I didn't cook the chicken the way the package said. I just threw it in a small pot & heated it up. I chopped up some frozen grilled asparagus spears (also from TJ's) & threw them in with it. In a separate pot I heated 1 cup of Kimchi Rice & had the chicken over it with some fresh cilantro. It was such a great dinner & had enough flavor that I could actually taste what I was eating with sinuses this clogged.
It's good to add a little freshness to frozen/pre-cooked meals. The cilantro did the trick for this. Sometimes foods like this make being on plan really really easy.
