I have been doing “fairly well” with watching my caloric intake and had not been to a Chinese buffet in quite some time.
Below is “Plate # 1”
I usually judge the quality of a Chinese buffet by their egg drop soup and their crab rangoons.
This was a new place for use to go to and they scored an “A” for the soup and rangoons.
I have never had “Kung Pow”, so I thought I would give it a shot !!!!
Don’t really have a cost for this. The chicken was leftover form luch a couple of weeks ago, broccoli was in the fridge.
Made another big batch of “General Tso’s Chicken”
Made it this time with a double batch of sauce (I need to find somewhere I can buy it in bulk!!)
Also, I did not coat and fry the chicken, instead I just sauteed it.
I found a 5 pound package of chicken thighs at Jewel-Osco for .99 a pound and spent a little time in the kitchen de-boning it. (I don’t mind be the prep monkey in the kitchen)
So for the 5 pounds of chicken, I made my lunch for the week, made dinner for three, and put some in the freezer. Not to bad!!
