We have a few, but one of our favorites is “A Christmas Story.” It is such a classic and no matter how many times we watch it, we still laugh our heads off! If you have seen the movie, you probably remember how the neighbor’s dog eats the Christmas turkey. Ralphie and his family end of eating at a Chinese restaurant because there is nothing else open.
Well, the Hutchinson family has a tradition that is loosely based on that scene from the movie. The day after a holiday, we usually eat Chinese food at a local Asian restaurant. The past few years, we have had my daughter up from Atlanta. She loves my cooking, so we have not gone out for our usual take-out meal. We found we had just as much fun making a delicious Asian meal at home rather than go out. Heck, this way we get to stay home in our pajamas and watch our favorite movie!
It is always fun to take a family tradition and update it a bit as the times change. This is how we looked at our decision to make take-out at home instead of going out. Since we discovered the Ling Ling Asian Entrees we get from the frozen food section at our local Walmart. My husband teases that we have visited this section for these meals so often, our feet must be on auto-pilot by now. Yes, we eat these tasty meals that often!
We have now officially tried all of the Ling Ling Asian Entrees. The Chicken Dumplings in Chili Sauce was the last one we had not tried yet. Chris is as in love with them as he was with the Pork we had last week. They went perfectly with my Baked Sticky Asian Chicken Wings! I love how well the Ling Ling Asian Entrees fit into our busy lifestyle. They are affordable, easy and quick to make and taste like we dropped a load of cash at the local Asian restaurant for them!
If you enjoy any style of Asian cuisine, you will absolutely fall in love with the Ling Ling Asian Entrees. There are so many to pick from and at a price to fit into just about any budget, you can try a new entree every week! Their new Ling Ling Fried Rice line includes Yakitori Chicken, Yakiniku Beef,Thai-Style Chicken, Chinese-Style Vegetable and Bibimbap Beef. They are based on pure and authentic Asian inspired recipes from Japan, China, Korea and Thailand. I could seriously eat the Bibimbap Beef Fried Rice every single day!
Chris is the same way about the Asian Noodles and Asian Dumplings, the newest Ling Ling Asian Entrees. There are two varieties of the Asian Noodles; Chicken Yakisoba, Drunken Noodles with Chicken. For the Asian Dumplings, you can have the Chicken Dumplings in Chili Sauce and Pork Dumplings in Chili Sauce. If you like a little kick to your food, these are going to get your taste buds dancing! With their infusion cooking method, each noodle or grain of rice is infused with the Ling Ling signature sauces. So darn good! Be sure to take advantage of the $2 off a box of Ling Ling Fried Rice, Noodles or Dumplings at any retailer where the products are sold!
To make my Baked Sticky Asian Chicken Wings, you will need to be sure to follow a few tips to ensure they are perfect! When you buy your wings, the wing and drumette will probably be connected. I used kitchen scissors to separate mine. After you rinse them, be sure to pat them dry. I like to cook mine for the majority of the baking time. I add the sauce at the very end so it doesn’t burn. You still get great flavor, trust me!
