Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken
This is one of Trader Joe’s best-selling items (and that’s saying a lot). Though you have to do a little extra work for this dish — heating the chicken and sauce separately — it’s absolutely worth it. Served with ready-made brown rice and some frozen Trader Joe’s stir-fry vegetables, this is faster, cheaper and (a bit) healthier than takeout.
Trader Joe’s Shepherd’s Pie
TJ’s version of this warming and filling casserole is chock-full of veggies (including peas and carrots) and tender shredded beef. The mashed potato topping, which is not too thin nor too thick, bakes up nice and crispy in the oven.
