Jaime Loves Stuff : Wanchai Ferry Review and Giveaway


Wanchai Ferry Review and Giveaway



As a mom, I am always busy. Add to that, I am a single mother raising a child with disabilities, going to college, working, taking my daughter to various therapies and doctors appointments, book reviewing and blogging. I love to cook. I am always game to try something new and especially love Asian meals (watch my blog for my review of "A Taste of Guam" as I cook through some of the recipes) but just some days, I am not in the mood to cook. I love to order take out but really, it's expensive.

I was given the opportunity to review Wanchai Ferry's frozen Orange Chicken thanks toMyBlogSpark! and of course, Wanchai Ferry! I was skeptical because #1 I am picky and #2 most frozen meals are not all they are cracked up to be. Like I said, I am willing to try anything at least once! Also, they included a service for two: bamboo place mats, chopsticks and rice bowls (!!!). Pretty awesome, huh?

Wanchai Ferry's Orange Chicken comes with chicken, vegetables (carrots, broccoli, and baby corn), sauce and jasmine rice. The veggies looked pretty :)

The process was very simple and well written. First, heat a 10" nonstick skillet over medium high heat with 2-3 tablespoons of oil and add the breaded chicken to the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until lightly browned.

The remove the chicken, reduce heat to medium, add the veggies, 1/4 cup of water and sauce. Bring to boil, cover and stir frequently, cooking for 3 minutes. Add chicken and cook for another 4- 6minutes. During that time was when I popped the rice into the microwave for 3 minutes. Warning.. the rice is very HOT. Let sit for about a minute before trying to open. I used a towel to pull it apart. I thought that part was difficult, I had to use a knife to pop a hole in the middle and then I was able to open the rice! The rice smelled wonderful, the veggies were colorful and everything smelled delicious!

Doesn't that look fabulous? Well let me tell YOU, it was. The veggies maintained a nice crispy texture, as did the chicken, the sauce was fantastic and the perfect amount and the rice came out PERFECT! Jasmine rice is one of my favorites and the rice microwaved perfectly in their little pouch. My daughter gobbled it up and asked for more "chicken and wice".

For an easy, weeknight meal, this is it! Tasty, fast and filling.

Since my blog is a book review blog, we know how it can get when we are reading like crazy, our TBR piles SCREAMING at us and we don't have time to cook! This is it.

Wanchai's website (http://www.wanchaiferry.com/) offers meal add-in ideas, a $1.50 off coupon (awesome) and the history behind their company. Check it out! The different meal varieties offered are: spicy garlic chicken, sweet & spicy shrimp, sweet & sour shrimp, orange chicken and shrimp lo mein. Personally, I will be trying all of them! Yum!

  2. The best fortune cookie I ever received said "Your reserve makes people think you a snob, smile to let them know your are friendly"

    so true, because I am a bit shy around new people.

  4. I am a Christian; therefore, I don't believe in fortune. I don't read the words on pieces of paper from any fortune cookies; I just toss those (and eat the cookies).

    Please enter me in your giveaway. Thanks! I love Asian food!

  5. I would LOVE to win this...Asian food is my favorite.

    In FACT. I kind of wish I was Asian.

    Every Asian chick I know is just super cool:)

    The best fortune cookie I ever received was on the way to the beach---it read "Pleasures await you by the seashore".
    Here is the link to my post about it:)

  7. My best one was "You will receive a pleasant surprise soon." I like this one (as vague as it is) because a couple of days later I won my first contest.

  9. The best fortune from a cookie I ever received went something along the lines of: "Kindness and Compassion are traits you have in spades let them be your strength not your weakness". I received it during a rough time in which I could not tell the difference between friends and hangers-on.

    Twittered about the giveaway: http://twitter.com/joanana/status/3351501570

    And I am now subscribed and following your blog.

  10. The best fortune I ever received had to be the one that said my soul mate was sitting right across from me - and there was no one across from me! LOL

    I also followed the blog (Charity Lynn) and tweeted the giveaway. :)

    "You are a good friend to friends."

    I liked that one.

  13. Fortune cookies don't really have "fortunes" anymore. Now they are more like inspirational sayings. I have one that I got that is now taped to my desk organizer. It says "The only good is knowledge and the only evil ignorance." I've had this "fortune" for probably 10 years now.

  24. The best fortune cookie I have received is one that said something like "you will succeed in everything that you do" It was really nice and I was so happy about getting it when I realized my sister got the SAME EXACT one! That really ruined it :( lol
