P.F. Chang's Home Menu; Meals for 2

Growing up, my Mom used to always tell us "If you whine about it, you won't get anything." Now that I'm a mom, I use the same line. Often. 

However, I'm here to tell you that it isn't necessarily true 100% of the time. Don't tell my daughter!

See, back in April, I wrote this post in which I happened to whine about the lack of P.F. Chang's locations in Wyoming. It's a tragedy, I'm sure.   

P.F. Chang's people read the post and I was contacted about doing a product review for P.F. Chang's new line of frozen entrees now available at your local grocery store. I most happily accepted!

Out of the many varieties they offer, I chose General Chang's Chicken. It looked yummy.

I saved it until this week because I knew the husband and I would need something quick and easy (but still tasty!) for dinner with all the packing and moving we've been doing.

Preparing the meal takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish! And one of the things I really liked about it was how all you have to do is open the bag, pour the contents into a hot skillet, cover, stir occasionally and eat! How simple is that? There's none of the whole "microwave this" and "add this packet after 5 minutes" before you "add this packet that needs to cook for 10 minutes" stuff going on.

Simple is good, my friends.

Let me tell y'all, it was pretty good! The sauce that it comes with had just the right amount of spice and kick to it without being overpowering. Unlike some frozen entrees that are low quality and come out mushy, this whole dish tasted like we had gotten it fresh from P.F. Chang himself...or at least the restaurant! :) 

If y'all ever find yourself trying to figure out dinner on a busy night, or just want something simple, go check out P.F. Chang's new Home Menu; Meals for 2!

  1. I'm with you on missing PF Changs in our town. When I was preggers with M.E. all I craved--literally--was Chang's Spicy Chicken. Then the nearest location was Flat Iron. *Sigh*

    I'll have to give these a whirl! Thanks for the review.

  2. I like your point that it's just one step. I get frustrated by the "microwave on low power for 5 minutes then on high for 3 minutes" and the various packets and times of some meals. Isn't the point of getting a frozen dinner that you don't have to do any work? Or decipher instructions that are as long as a recipe?
    We might give it a try!

  3. Awesome, thanks for the review, I will try these now. Usually in frozen meals the meat is iffy, I tried that WanChai and it was also tasty. They seem to be stepping up in frozen meals.


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
