Tour Of Asia Orange Chicken Stir Fry Featuring La Choy Orange Ginger Stir Fry

Orange Chicken Stir Fry Featuring La Choy Orange Ginger Stir Fry!

Accompanied by Coconut Asian Fried Rice!

I love the flavor that La Choy sauces bring to the table - pun intended (yea corny I know but that's me).  I call this Tour Of Asia because of the variety of Asian sauces and inspirations that I used to create it.

La Choy Stir Fry Sauce, Orange Ginger, 14.75 oz (Pack of 4)


I have a bit of an Asian food fetish as you can see by the mostly Asian food posts that I have.  So, that being said, I'm always creating different flavors that have that Asian spirit.
I like to combine different sauces and use them in different ways in the same recipes.  For example I marinade the chicken in this recipe in the Korean Orange marinade and then I create a different Asian inspired sauce that I cook and then drizzle over the finished product.  Add the Coconut Fried Rice and bam!  Tour Of Asia!
The only thing that you need to add to go with this is a nice Cabernet Sauvignon!  I suggest Chateau St. Michelle.  This smooth Cab comes from the Columbia Valley in Washington State.  It has a nice bold flavor, not very sweet and just a tad dry.  I like it!

This Easy Chinese Recipes Cook Book highly recommended.  Check out the reviews and consider adding this to your cook book collection!
