Why This Recipe?

You may ask why I go with this recipe instead of the one which has everything in one bag. Well, there are several reasons:

1) The quantity you get from this recipe is more than what you get from any pre-packed frozen Chinese dinner.  If you compare this with your regular take-out dinner, this is outrageously more in quantity and way, way, way cheaper per person.

2) You have plenty of options of what kind of sauce you want to add on top of the chicken.  There are Japanese, Thai, Indian and other sauces in the international aisle.  Keep your mind open.  You can switch up these sauces or serve them separately for your family to pick.  Here are a few suggestions:




CHEF NOTES

To double the quantity of this recipe, assemble another pan of same quantity of vegetables and chicken nuggets.  This will ensure that everything cooks with right amount of time.  No undercooked or overcooked food.

This recipe is perfect for the night when you just want to be a couch potato.  It is so simple that you can instruct anybody in the family to assemble the whole plate together.  Can you imagine that you can still put together a dinner for your family without walking into the kitchen or spend ridiculous amount for a take-out?
