Easy Trader Joe's Meals - Mandarin Orange Chicken with Broccoli over Lime Rice

... a continuation of my posts on easy meals made from ingredients found at Trader Joe's

Mandarin Orange Chicken with Broccoli over Lime Rice
1 bag frozen mandarin orange chicken
1 bag broccoli florets
1 bag pre-cooked Thai lime rice

Prepare mandarin chicken according to instructions: 22 min in 450 degree oven. While chicken is cooking, heat sauce in the microwave (~60 sec), heat rice in the micro (60 sec), and steam broccoli in micro (5-7 min). When chicken is done, pour sauce over chicken and broccoli and lightly toss. Serve over Lime rice.

HB likes to have her own bowl of sauce so that she can dip her chicken in it herself, so I reserve some of the sauce in a little prep bowl for her. While they give you two packets of sauce with the chicken, we only use one of them.

    I have never seen the Thai lime rice at TJ's. I'll have to look for that. I love these recipes - please keep them coming!

  2. @Candy - it's one of their pre-cooked rices. They also have brown rice. Both are very yummy.
