Once again I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review a product and also give it away along with a $30.00 gift card to one of my friends.
As you know Maggie is all about quick, easy and most of all yummy! These two dinners from Restaurant Favorites are just that plus most everything you need comes in the kit except for the chicken. After trying them both I honestly can not say which one is my favorite. The first one I made was the Wanchai Ferry Chinese Dinner Kit. I hate to admit it but I was sceptible about it tasting anything like the Orange Chicken you order at your favorite chinese restraurant but was I surprised that I was eating chinese this good cooked by me in my own little country kitchen. I felt guilty enjoying it all by myself that I had to take what was left to Gary's house for him to try and even though he is not a chinese fan he truly liked this dish.
A few days later I tried the Romano's Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites Kit. It was Creamy Basil Parmeasan Chicken and Pasta. I did manage to take a picture of it before I dug into it. This picture does not do it justice but you can get the idea. I tore some of my basil off of my plant in the window and tried to decorate it like a pro but not so good the way I laid them on there. I am not very good at displays. lol
The only thing you need extra with this kit is 3/4 cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of butter and a pound of chicken strips. This was so easy and fast that I had it ready in twenty minutes. I was not a bit sceptible about fixing it because I had already tried the Orange Chicken. Needless to say I loved it too.
Enjoy an Asian escape with Wanchai Ferry restaurant-inspired dishes by simply adding your own protien to delicious entrees like Cashew Chicken, Spicy Garlic Chicken, Orange Chicken, and Kung Pao Chicken. Or bring the romance of Italian cuisine to your kitchen with Macaroni Grill favorites such as Chicken Piccata and Angel Hair Pasta, Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken & Pasta, Chicken Alfredo with Linguine, Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne, and Chicken Marsala with Linguine.
So stay in and go all out!® Make your meal an experience by perhaps adding some ambiance with candles and flowers.

I was going to share it with Gretchen but she left a day early for her trip to London. No doubt I will buy this and let her enjoy it when she gets back. Truly going to be strange her not in the little pink house for three weeks. I already miss her and she just left.
