When we just can't muster the courage to cook dinner, takeout has long been our go-to savior.But too often, the resulting dinner has been uninspired with questionable nutritional value and food quality.These days, we try our best to have a few TJ's frozen dinner options on standby in our freezer. They're reasonably priced, relatively easy to make and you know exactly what's inside.Plus, if you choose wisely, you'll be cooking up a knockout dinner packed with flavor.This Kung Pao Chicken is a great example. The sauce is flavorful, with a solid (but not intense) spice and the right amount of sweet.The chicken was plentiful and mostly plump, though there were some tiny scraps of chicken mixed in there too. Thankfully, it cooks up very tender and soaks up the flavor of the sauce nicely.From a texture perspective, the veggies keep their crisp for the most part, and the peanuts add a complex crunch to the dish.If you'd like, you can add some white or brown rice to this dish to really round out the meal.All told, we were very impressed with this dish, and it's definitely earned a spot on our Trader Joe's grocery list!

About The Trader Rater

The selection at Trader Joe's is amazing, and we are constantly discovering new and exciting products. But all those options can be a bit overwhelming, and it can be hard to know what's worth buying. That's where we come in! Our goal is to help you navigate the aisles by providing you with unbiased (and unauthorized) reviews and recommendations to help you decide whether to "scan it" or "can it". We hope you find our site helpful!


  1. This has become our favorite ‘freezer meal’. We make sure to always have this on hand for those nights we just don’t feel like baking ‘from scratch’. The flavor is wonderful. We’ve tried two other frozen Asian-inspired meals at Trader Joes and both were disappointing. But we’re going to keep trying.
