Orange Chicken (Better Than Panda Express!) – Who needs takeout when you can make it better at home? #chicken #SuccessRice #ad
I have been craving Orange Chicken for weeks. Yes, for weeks! Although, it sounds easy enough to just go pick up some takeout from one of my favorite local Asian food joints – it’s not that easy …. it’s a 20 mile trip – one way!! We live out in the middle of the desert, literally. Thankfully, I keep a well stocked pantry which allows me to make some of my favorite takeout meals at home! Thanks to Success® Rice for sponsoring this post written by me.
Having Success® Rice in you pantry is perfect for a busy weeknight or for entertaining with family and friends. Being able to take shortcuts in the kitchen without sacrificing quality or taste, will help you pull off a successful dinner. Some of my favorite dinnertime shortcuts are bagged salads, jarred sauces and of course, Success® Rice.
Success® Jasmine Rice is the only Boil-in-Bag Jasmine rice available. It has a buttery, nutty fragrance, silky, smooth grains and delivers fully cooked rice in 10 minutes! It’s pre-portioned, BPA-free boil-in-bag means no mess and no measuring involved! Success® Rice cooks up perfectly every time. The brown and white rice can sit up to 30 minutes before being served – giving you plenty of time to get dinner together and it’s foolproof!
Success® Rice has four varieties available including: Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice and Success® White Rice, and globally-inspired aromatic varieties of Success® Rice, including fragrant Thai Jasmine or Basmati Rice. Success® Jasmine Rice is perfect for Asian-themed dishes, while Success® Basmati Rice is perfect for Indian-themed dishes. With Success® Rice, you can easily take your family on a culinary journey at mealtime!
Your favorite takeout place doesn’t have anything on this homemade version of Orange Chicken! This is easily one of my family’s favorite weeknight meals – and it’s the dinner Isaac requested for his birthday this year! I hope you enjoy!
