Finding a New Sauce

I love finding new sauces....or old sauces in my fridge that I've forgotten about. Such was the case when I opened the refrigerator door and found this guy hanging out next to the salad dressing.

House of Tsang General Tsao Sauce

I've used this sauce before, but since it needed to be used up before the expiration date, I decided to put it on my chicken this week.

I have to tell you, the aroma in my kitchen was phenomenal. This sauce is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. Even though it doesn't taste exactly like the stuff you get from the Chinese restaurant, it comes pretty close.

The husband was so excited to have this on the menu for the week. He loves Chinese food almost as much as I do.

Question of the Day:
What's your favorite item to order in a Chinese restaurant?

Until next time!

Lately I've just been ordering pints of white rice when my family orders Chinese. With soy sauce, they're the best!

I'm a big pain when I order my Chinese food. I always ask if they could steam broccoli, snow peas and bamboo shoots and put it over rice. I don't like to order off the menu:)

I guess I don't do normal Chinese food, but I like the lettuce wraps at PF Changs!

I love sauces too- the last one I'm loving is a spicy peanut sauce from Trader Joe's.

Finding a reliable sauce that can transform any dish into a great meal is the best! My boyfriend loves loves loves Chinese food and is so happy when I can concoct something similar at home. I think my favorite order is orange chicken? But truly I love the appetizers- crab rangoon, chicken fingers, beef teriyaki, and spring/egg rolls! Delish!
Have a great day!!

I love the veggies, especially the broccoli. I don't get Chinese food often, usually Thai or Japanese.
