Up until I was a sophomore in high school, I would have told you that I didn’t like Chinese food. I know, right? For most of my tween and early teen years I was what you might call a picky eater. At that point I hadn’t even tried anything from a Chinese menu – other than French fries – but I was sure I wouldn’t like it.
Then my friends and I participated in a scavenger hunt contest and won a gift certificate to a local Chinese restaurant. I went planning to eat some fries and instead was talked into trying a few things from the buffet. To my surprise, there were a number of things that I enjoyed: fried rice, sweet & sour chicken, beef & broccoli.
After that, ordering Chinese became a weekend treat that continued through college and into my married life. Unfortunately where we are in Kentucky, no local Chinese places deliver so we don’t have it as often as we might otherwise. But I recently discovered that I could get yummy Chinese – just for me! – right from my grocer’s freezer.
Tai Pei has over 20 years experience in providing a line of frozen chef-created, restaurant-inspired meals. The meals – made with Asian-style signature sauces – come in single-size servings, and there are also single-serve and multi-serve appetizers. This makes it perfect for grabbing a quick lunch, or sitting down to savor an appetizer while Bubbles takes a nap.
I’ve tried a few different varieties and so far my favorites include the Combination Fried Rice, Sweet & Sour Chicken, and the Pork Potstickers. Next I plan to try the Bourbon Chicken and General Tso’s Chicken. Maybe with a side of the Battered Green Beans or a couple of the Vegetable Egg Rolls.
Recently Tai Pei debuted their Asian Garden line. With around 300 calories per meal and 8 grams of fat or less per dish, they’re the only Asian brand of better-for-you single-serve frozen entrées. The Spicy General Tso’s Chicken is my favorite of the 8 options they currently have. You can visit the Tai Pei website to find a complete listing of all the varieties Tai Pei offers.
