Tangy Orange Cashew Chicken {One Stop Meals With Tyson #MixNMatchMeals}

I can't tell you how many times I have found myself standing in front of the fridge at 5:30 wondering what to make for dinner. As much as I love to cook, sometimes I wish it was easier to throw together a family meal. How often have you asked yourself, "what goes with that?" What sauce goes with what meat and what side goes with both of them?


Thankfully, Tyson has heard my silent kitchen prayers and answered them with their new Mix & Match Meal Creations. Mix & Match makes putting together a complete meal as easy as making three choices: protein, sauce, side. With 192 different combinations, there is something for every dinner mood out there.


Since Chinese take out is our go to "we ran out of motivation time to make dinner" choice, I decided to recreate one of our favorite dishes at home. I went with the Tangy Orange sauce paired it with Chicken Breast Chunks and Whole Grain Brown Rice and added my own personal twist. I added some sliced red pepper for flavor and color and topped the whole thing with crushed cashews and thinly sliced green onions.


I could not believe how easy and how good the entire meal was. It tasted like it was straight from a restaurant without the hassle and cost of actually going to one. The chicken was breaded perfectly to hold up to the tangy and sweet sauce and it wouldn't be Orange Chicken if I didn't pair it rice. I love that I could personalize the dish as much or as little as I wanted. It felt like it was truly homemade since I could put my own little touch on it.


Justin and I both had heaping servings and we still had plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. This could easily serve a family of four without a problem. The whole meal was out of the freezer and on to the table in less than 30 minutes and cost about $10; perfect for a busy week night. I can't wait to try the other sauces, meats and sides. And since it doesn't look like my life will be getting less busy anytime soon, I can already tell I am going to be very glad Tyson #MixNMatchMeals have so many dinner options.
