This Trader Joe’s chow mein with chicken is a decent frozen meal option with good flavor but lacking the texture of an actual take out Chinese meal. You can make this TJs chicken chow mein in either the microwave or on the stove top, but as always it tastes a lot better with better texture when you make in a pan on the stove top. The sauce and noodles are a good replication of take out Chinese food, but the chicken is actually really meaty and flavorful compared to a lot of other frozen Asian entrees…….…….

Trader Joe’s Chicken Chow Mein
This Trader Joe’s chicken chow mein is sort of in the middle of the pack taste and texture wise, but is worth trying if you absolutely love chow mein noodles. If you’re patient and make these on the stove top, you can make sure the noodles all get the proper texture combined with the chicken and sauce to form a pretty solid Chinese meal. How would everyone compare these to other Trader Joes frozen meal options? Keep in mind that like almost all frozen meal options, this has a lot of sodium in it, so it’s probably best to not eat these more than once every few weeks or so. And if you can’t make it out to TJs, give these items a try…..
