    Recipe for Trader Joes Mandarin Orange Chicken?

    Well, coming back to Sweden in general been in an ok experience. Left a lot of things we miss behind but that is what's to be expected. Since i travel to the states fairly frequent i can still bring back most of what the family wants (think leaving Sweden with 15lbs of bags and clothes and returning with over 100lbs... each trip.

    So, one thing that i have not been able to solve or substitute is the Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken (you buy it in a frozen plastic bag with pieces of chicken and 2 bags of sauce inside if i recall correctly) that my 5 year old loved to have in his lunchbox to school. No week was acceptable without it at least once for 3 years...

    Last week (consider it's been almost a year) my son broke down crying asking for his "favourite food".... Does any of you skilled chefs/cooks/dudes know how to make something similar? We have tried most alternatives available commercially in Sweden and they have all been disappointments.

    Even ideas to put me in the right direction is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Got a bag in the freezer -- I can copy the ingredient list if you want.

    That has to be the most annoying web site in the world. The constant flashing from one thing to another makes it very hard to follow the content. it makes me want to get a gun and shoot it!!
