It’s not everyday that I hear “I’d eat this again” from my husband. But tonight, I heard that exact sentence! It was a super simple meal to make so in 2 weeks when he is home with the kiddos, and I’m enjoying good ‘ol Vegas, I will leave all the ingredients in the freezer for him to make it himself. Yup- That easy!
Oh, and because of what’s in it, I KNEW that my kiddos would eat it all and love it too. If you were to ask either of them what they’d like to eat they would pick either A- Broccoli, or B- Noodles. So you can’t beat a meal with both.

For this recipe I used Van de Kamps Fish Tenders. It was our first time trying these, and I’m already planning more new reipes with it because of how flavorful and delicious they are. I was so pleased with them, and they far exceeded my expectations of what a frozen fish tender would be.

Ingredients

Preheat your oven to 425 as directed on the Van de Kamps Fish packaging. Place 4-6 fish tenders on a metal baking dish. Bake for 22 minutes, turning over 11 minutes in.
{With about 10 minutes left on the fish, you can start on everything else, that way everything stays warm}
In a large pot, boil water and cook the chow mein noodles according to their packaging (approx. 3 minutes). Drain the noodles and rinse with cold water. In the same pot, bring 3/4 water and 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon to a boil. Using a small cup, combine 2 tablespoons of hot water and 1 tablespoon of corn starch. Once mixed, pour it into the chicken bouillon mixture and stir constantly for 30 seconds while it thickens. Remove immediately from heat. Mix the noodles into the bouillon mixture until evenly covered.
Place your Birds Eye Vegetables into your microwave and cook according to directions on the back (approx. 5 1/2 minutes) and then let cool for 1 minute before handling.

Plate noodles, then top it with the vegetables and 2-3 fish tenders per plate. Top it with slivered almonds and serve.

This is great with egg noodles, and make it an authentic night and eat the meal with chopsticks! I found some at our local store for just $2 for 6 sets a few months ago. Even The Little Man has mastered the art of the chopsticks!
