Dollar Tree Chinese Dinner for Two



Sometimes I tire of making meals from scratch. It saves a lot of money, but an inexpensive frozen dinner is a lovely reprieve from kitchen duty. This Dollar Tree Teriyaki Chicken (196 calories per serving) for two was really delicious, just like Chinese restaurant food. I added about half a bag of frozen stir fry mixed peppers and onion(Save-A-Lot), minced garlic(Dollar Tree), and a splash of Japanese rice vinegar(Walmart). I served this over some delicious Mahatma brand(Walmart, USA grown) brown rice with soy sauce(real).

Dollar Tree also sells frozen bags of stir fry vegetables which I got along with their frozen salad shrimp(his favorite) for my son. Also found, two thick pizza crusts for a dollar, Hormel pepperoni for pizza(two pouch box), and a bag of ten tortillas.

Everytime I walk by the cooler/freezer section of The Dollar Tree I pick up something and give it a whirl. No complaints so far except some shredded cheese that would not melt no matter what! We love Chinese and often make it from scratch at the house. I will give this a try. Thanks for the info!

H.m.m.m You are making me hungry. I will have to visit the Dollar Store tomorrow and see what they have. I was there recently and practically bought their whole supply of bottled green olives.

Thanks for the idea!

Their food selection has gotten much better over the years. I had their frozen stir fry last night - good mix! Some of them have too much broccoli.

Lola - I was meaning to leave a note on your blog about these. Thanks for the heads on on this deal - we love the dishes. :)
