Kahiki Foods Review and Giveaway
As previously mentioned, these are frozen foods. You'll find them in the freezer section of your grocery store. For me, that was Stop & Shop. They're also available at Market Basket, Sam's Club, Winn-Dixie, and ShopRite to name a few others. Check the list on their site for a store near you.

The products they offer include single serve frozen entrees, egg rolls, multi-serve meals, tempura chicken and sauce, StirFresh, and steam and serve meals. For the review here, you're going to see a lo mein steam and serve meal and the General Tso's StirFresh


This one you literally just throw in the microwave for about ten minutes and the lo mein cooks purely from steam, hence the name steam and serve. There are stove top cooking instructions, too, but the microwave is the preferred cooking form.
After cooking part of the way, you pick up the bag from the corners and shake it around a bit to mix it up before throwing it back in the microwave to finish cooking.
Kahiki Foods - Chicken Lo Mein Review
And, here's what the finished dish looked like. That's two servings worth. Prep was easy here and hard to beat. You just have to make sure the timing is right for the noodles to cook properly. I was probably a little short on the time and will cook it longer next time. You get a tasty chicken lo mein dish out of the bag. Just add your own chopsticks and eat away. In addition to the white meat chicken and soba noodles, the dish includes broccoli, carrots, red peppers, some cabbage, celery, and edamame. Half a package weighs in at 320 calories, including 6g fat, 16g protein, and 51g of carbs. My big disappointment here was the 960 mg of sodium. But the taste was spot on for a good lo mein dish.
As with any good Chinese take out meal, I had to try it out the next day as leftovers. It held up well to the reheating. I felt this was definitely two servings worth of food.
The second dish I tried out was their General Tso's Chicken, meant to be cooked on top of the stove. This starts with you defrosting the sauce in some hot water for a couple minutes.
 The bag is then dumped out into a 10" skillet.
Where... you place the defrosted sauce over the meal in a cool skillet.
At this point, you're to cover the food, turn on the burner, and let it cook for about ten minutes, stirring occasionally.
After the ten minutes, uncover for two minutes, stirring more vigorously to make sure the sauce covers all the food. The sauce will thicken at this point.
When to know its done? Make sure the internal temperature of the chicken is 165° F.
Khahiki Foods: General Tso's Chicken Review
Here's what the finish dish looks like. Again, this is two servings. Including the sauce, the dish is 440 calories per serving, including 24g of fat, 45g carbs, and 12g protein. Sodium again was high at 920 mg. If the dish was served with rice, I can see this being a good two servings. Without the rice, I ate the whole thing, which is why I'm concerned about the sodium (and fat). You get a nice zesty General Tso's sauce on the chicken, not too spicy, but enough to enjoy. Just broccoli, carrots, and red bell peppers to go with the chicken here. There is some sweetness to the sauce, and I always like more garlic in mine, but that's me.

Both dishes proved to be very tasty. If you like Asian take out, these are a nice alternative that you can easily prepare in the home. The fact that they're all natural without the artificial flavorings just adds to the enjoyment.
Here's your chance to win some Kahiki Foods for yourself. You get three vouchers for free dishes, basically coupons for up to $7.50 off each. (One winner of all three.) The giveaway is open to continental US residents only as the product isn't available in HI or AK. Please check to make sure the product is available in your area before entering. The giveaway ends on 3/22/15 at 11:59pm EDT. Good luck.
