The following recipe and photography were provided by local blogger Carolyn Hodges of The Dinner Shift.

I love a good dinner hack, and this stir fry is the perfect example of how you can build a quick meal using a combination of store-bought shortcuts and fresh foods. Heinen’s Frozen Department is stocked with time-saving ingredients and meals to help you get dinner on the table quickly any night of the week.

Why You’ll Love it:

  • Fully cooked and ready to heat, the frozen Asian entrees from Heinen’s are made with high quality ingredients you can feel good about serving your family.
  • Heinen’s cooked brown rice is ready in minutes and doesn’t require boiling water! Jut heat it up in a microwave!
  • One pan is all you need for this quick dish! The mandarin sauce comes with the frozen entree! Just fold it in the chicken and serve over rice! That’s a wrap on dinner!

Orange Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry

Orange Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry


  • 1 package Heinen’s Mandarin Orange Chicken
  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen’s avocado oil
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced broccoli
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 containers Heinen’s organic cooked brown or white rice
  • Optional: sliced green onions


  1. Remove the sauce packets, then bake the chicken according to package instructions.
  2. While the chicken bakes, stir fry the vegetables. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the bell pepper, broccoli, carrots and mushrooms and sauté until crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then add the reserved sauce to the pan and heat to steaming.
  3. When the chicken is done baking, add it to the pan, tossing everything well to coat with the sauce.
  4. Heat the rice according to package instructions and divide into bowls. Top with the chicken and vegetable stir fry and garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.
