Costco sells this Organic Kung Pao Chicken for $6.79 per pound. Scroll down for photos. I was a little confused at first because I thought the entire container was $6.79 until I noticed the “per pound”. Each pack is about 2.5 to 3 pounds, so it costs around $16 – $20. It’s not bad for a pre-made organic kung pao chicken meal. Best of all it’s all organic! It looks like it’s going to be all meat by the way it’s packaged. Be aware of the fact that this is an entire meal, including the rice, cashews & vegetables, so you are paying for those by weight as well. Still a good deal though. Here are a few more details about this Costco Kung Pao Chicken………
- Brand: East West Cuisine
- Contains: Soy, Tree Nuts (Cashews), Wheat
- Cooking Directions on Back (microwave or stove top)
- Can be Frozen
- Moderately Spicy
Costco East West Cuisine Organic Kung Pao Chicken
I thought it was great tasting for a pre-made meal. I’m no connoisseur of food, but for a ready made meal that can be warmed up in the microwave, it was good. I do recommend using the stove top over the microwave. The food always taste better & less rubbery when warmed on the stove top. Like I said above, it was moderately spicy. I’m not big on spicy food & it didn’t bother me much, so that was good. If I had my preference, I would prefer this to be “meat only” & I can make my own fresh brown/white rice to have as a base. Rice is so easy that I would rather not warm up pre-cooked rice (that’s just my opinion though). It’s already got a lot of flavor, but if you’re looking to spruce it up a bit, check out these Kung Pao Sauces……

I am a huge fan of Kung Pao Chicken and have eaten it around this world. This is one of the worst semi pre made foods from costco. The Chicken is like rubber, There is nothing I could do to get the flavor even close. The Brown Rice with a little Soy Sauce was the saving grace.
The smell when the chicken came out of the package should have been enough to throw it away.
Thanks for the reviews Steven. I recognize that my barometer is set lower with pre-made food, so I can understand people who really don’t enjoy this, especially one who has eaten all over the world. It was a one time buy for me. Thanks for stopping by.
Won’t be buying this again. Too much rice and not nearly enough chicken and veggies. Not a good value.
Ya. It is deceiving they put a photo on the front where it appears it will be meat and veggies. Having rice as a filler is a cheap way for them to cut costs. I’m sure the “organic” label will still get people buying this product. We’ll see how long it lasts on the shelves.
Tribble, tribble, packaging. Simply dumb and messy. Doesn’t look or taste like Kung Pao Chicken either. I would never buy it again. Also extremely expensive for the content.
Thanks for the comment Ron. $6.79 / pound is expensive for chicken and vegetables. I thought it was tasty, but my expectations were low because it is pre-packaged. Sorry you didn’t find it tasty. It’s not too hard to make & there are PLENTY of recipes out there
