Crazy Cuizine, known for bringing authentic Asian-inspired cuisine from the freezer aisle to the dinner table in minutes, introduced a mouthwatering new flavor to its popular line of family-style, frozen entrees: Kung Pao Chicken. Made with lightly battered chicken breast and rib meat, the new dish features a stir-fry style Kung Pao sauce, with a blend of soy sauce, garlic and ginger flavors, and a mild kick of spicy heat that gives the dish a true sense of Szechuan-inspired authenticity.
A better value than take-out, new Crazy Cuizine Kung Pao Chicken is an easy-to-prepare stir-fry dish, complete with packs of tender, frozen steamed vegetables, cashews for crunch, and Crazy Cuizine’s all-new signature Kung Pao sauce. The savory flavors of the new Crazy Cuizine Kung Pao Chicken pair with side dishes such as rice, noodles, or additional fresh or frozen veggies to create a well-balanced meal.
“Adapted by American Chinese Food vendors throughout the 20th century, the Kung Pao Chicken recipe which Western palates have come to know and crave is a delicious, succulent and slightly spicy version of an ancient entrée, which Crazy Cuizine has emulated for this latest launch,” said David Weinberg, sales and marketing director at Day-Lee Foods, Inc. “Featuring a carefully crafted recipe, Crazy Cuizine Kung Pao Chicken combines a delicate blend of flavors ranging from sweet to savory and spicy in every bite. We are thrilled to offer families a Kung Pao Chicken option that allows them to choose take-home rather than take-out. Whether families are looking to serve up a quick and simple meal right from the box or excited to explore their kitchen creativity utilizing Kung Pao in their own recipes, this new entrée is sure to entice!”
