Crazy Cuisine is a line of authentic, high-protein Asian dishes inspired by classic Japanese, Chinese and Korean recipes. Fully cooked (ready to heat and serve) and high in protein, Crazy Cuisine’s dishes and free of preservatives, trans-fat and MSG.
Not only do they taste great, buy they are easy to prepare and ready in 18 minutes or less. Also, the versatile and time-saving recipes are perfect for lunch or dinner paired with your favorite grains or fresh vegetables, as well as at parties served as bite-size appetizers.
Although Crazy Cuizine’s all-natural, sliced white meat chicken and beef are cooked with authentic flavors from the Far East, the ingredients are U.S. sourced and the dishes are made at the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Southern California, which has received four consecutive "Gold" standard awards for food safety and quality practices by Silliker.
For the month of October, Crazy Cuizine’s popular Mandarin Orange Chicken will be available at Costco locations nationwide with a $3.50 discount. So NOW is the perfect time to try it out.
Mandarin Orange Chicken is one of Crazy Cuizine’s most popular products, as well as a favorite around our house. This recipe features lightly battered, sliced chicken breast in a delicately-sweet Mandarin orange sauce with 12 individual servings in each box, enough for dinner, lunch and leftovers.
Last night for dinner we had Mandarin Orange Chicken alongside jasmine rice and steamed broccoli. We alternate between brown & white rice, but since I was cooking we had white rice (my husband is more committed to brown rice). Thankfully, preparing a meal using Mandarin Orange Chicken from Crazy Cuizine is quick & easy as my husband was volunteering after work and I was making dinner while wrangling two young girls after a long day.
While holding a hungry, unhappy 2 year-old in one arm I lined my baking pan with foil and dumped a packet of the pre-cooked, lightly breaded chicken on and threw it in the oven. I thawed the sauce in a bowl of hot water in the sink and used the approximately 18 minute baking time to make rice, veggies, set the table, wash hands, unpack my kindergartener’s lunch bag, help someone in the bathroom and wash hands again. Once done I simply tossed the hot chicken in a bowl with the sauce and dished up alongside our side dishes. Viola!
In our house we usually serve the veggies first to our girls, working from the theory that they will be more likely to eat them if they are presented first when they are the most hungry. It’s also a stall tactic for my younger daughter who is a bit of a "Hulk" when she’s hungry. This theory proved true last night when the previously mentioned 2 year-old munched on broccoli until her plate of rice & Mandarin Orange Chicken was cooled off and presented to her. I believe her exact words were "no more this please" as she pushed away the broccoli and gobbled up her chicken & rice.
My husband came home right as dinner was ready and we had a great family meal sitting at the table talking about something good from our day and something not-so-good. My husband even went back for seconds of Mandarin Orange Chicken and rice, although curiously not broccoli?!?
We used half the Costco-sized package for this meal. It comes conveniently packed separated into portions appropriate for two meals for our family of four. Our children are still pretty small, so they don’t eat a whole lot, which left enough left-overs for me to package up two lunch portions for my husband and I each to take to work.
After dinner and clean-up my husband and I agreed that we enjoyed Crazy Cuizine’s Mandarin Orange Chicken and would definitely try out more flavors. Maybe the Korean BBQ Chicken next or Pork Potstickers .
Crazy Cuizine products are available at select Costco locations and BJ’s Wholesale Clubs across the country as well as at Albertons, Ralphs, Food for Less, Raley’s, SaveMart and Lucky Supermarkets throughout California and the Pacific Northwest.
