Dinner time is usually during what I call the “witching hour” because I’ve just brought the older kids home from school, I’m trying to help them get their homework done, keep the toddler happy, and get dinner started, all while waiting on Dad to get home from work. It’s slightly chaotic, to say the least.
Sometimes it’s nice to have a little dinner help with some pre-made frozen meals and ingredients. For these Teriyaki Chicken Wraps with Asian slaw, I bought a couple of these Evol Teriyaki Chicken meals that have brown rice, red & green bell peppers, broccoli, carrots and snap peas, slathered in a tasty teriyaki sauce. Having the main portion of the meal done already, puts me two steps ahead during “witching hour.”
All I had to do was heat up the teriyaki chicken meal in the microwave and throw it on some lettuce cups. To freshen it further, I whipped up a quick Asian slaw using some produce items, and some steamable shelled edamame from the freezer section.
The ginger-peanut dressing for the slaw melds really well with the teriyaki sauce from the chicken and rice dish. These Teriyaki Chicken Wraps with Asian Slaw came together quick and were something I was proud to serve my family.
Next time you’re down the frozen aisle, don’t just pass by those boxed dinners — grab one, or two. Meal planning is a cinch when half the work is done for you. You can even create something new and delicious that your family will love like these Teriyaki Chicken Wraps! Check out these Freezer Fresh Ideas from @Krogerco to get you started!
