Allow us to introduce Trader Ming's Shiitake Mushroom Chicken. This is a dish that satisfies the umami craving you may not have been aware you had. What's umami? It's the "fifth taste" that was first defined in Japan a century ago. We're all familiar with sweet, bitter, sour, and salty. Umami is that savory, earthy "other" flavor that's sometimes hard to define. Shiitake Mushroom Chicken is bursting with umami! Its big chunks of dark meat chicken are joined by whole shiitake mushroom caps, green beans, and edamame soybeans. All those flavors are tied together by the umami-rich, ginger-soy sauce. It's delicious. Add some rice to soak up that sauce and you'll have an impressive meal for 3-4 that's loaded with veggies and ready in minutes. Give it a try; it's umami-licious. It's also a great value. We're selling each 22 ounce package for $4.99, every day. You'll find it in our freezers.
