Couldn't you make a perfect night in with this cute pack of Asian inspired serving dishes and place settings. Of course you would need a great meal to go with it, something that won't take too much effort, but delivers great results. Well, this is the perfect set for you.

The great people at Wanchai Ferry through My Blog Spark provided me the opportunity to enjoy a perfect night in for myself. My gift pack included everything pictured here plus a VIP coupon for a free Wanchai Ferry meal kit and a $25 Target gift card. The gift card came in handy for purchasing a couple side dish items to make this a complete meal.

I have to admit, whenever I go to a well known Chinese fast food place, my first item in my two item combo is orange chicken. So, I was a little concerned about whether this would be comparable to my favorite place and live up to my expectation. Here is what Wanchai Ferry has to say about their Orange Chicken:

Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken has all of the ingredients needed to prepare a great-tasting, complete Chinese meal for 2 in only 14 minutes! With lightly battered chicken breast pieces that stay crispy when prepared and wholesome Asian-style vegetables, like tender broccoli florets, snappy julienne carrots and delicate baby corn, Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken will make you feel as though you’re enjoying a meal at your favorite Asian restaurant! It even comes with fluffy, tender Jasmine rice and a tangy orange glaze that adds the perfect touch of spicy heat.

We tried the Orange Chicken variety, but you could try any of their four other varieties which include Shrimp Lo Mein, Spicy Garlic Chicken, Sweet & Sour Shrimp and Sweet & Sour Chicken. I have to admit, this took about as long to make as it takes me to park, go into the Chinese place, stand in line and get back in the car to drive home. I was really pleased with how crispy the chicken stayed throughout cooking and eating this dish. The only thing about these meals are they are made for two. To round the meal out we added some miso soup and pot stickers.

Wanchai Ferry meals are now available in the freezer section at Target or your local grocer and you can also grab this $1.50/1 printable coupon. For meal tips to enhance your Wanchai Ferry frozen entrée check out their website here.

This truly did make for a great night in and was enjoyed by the both of us. We will be adding the other varieties to our freezer, for a yummy meal in a pinch. Wanchai Ferry's generosity just seems to be endless because they have also offered the provide the exact same prize pack as above and the $25 Target gift card to one of my lucky readers.
