Wanchai Ferry

It’s not often (ever?) that I am wowwed by anything marketed as a meal kit. I have to say though that this time I was. Tonight I made Wanchai Ferry’s Spicy Garlic Chicken. The kit came with seasoned cornstarch to toss your chicken in, jasmine rice, a sauce packet and a can of bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. It came out perfect!! The right amount of sauce and really delicious.
At first glance I was tempted to not buy it because I hate cooking rice. It takes forever and doesn’t come out right for me. And even though I would add 1/4 cup more water and cook the rice 2-3 more minutes it didn’t seem a chore because all of the other preparations and cooking took up that time exactly.
It was spicy but just at the right level for our family. And as an added bonus for us- no onions, celery OR mushrooms to pick out. Brendan scoffed at his plate but once he tried it he ate it right up. He likes spicy stuff though. This dish would be good with a few cashews tossed in at the end or maybe even use orange juice instead of water for the sauce. I can’t leave a recipe alone.
Go visit their website… there’s a $1.00 off coupon! And don’t believe the box… it really only serves about 3. Maybe 4 for a small lunch. I can’t wait to try the other 3 varieties!
