z202 Ying developed recipes that complement the signs of the Chinese Zodiac. Each of the twelve delicious dishes have associations with that sign's Yin/Yang aspects, season -- even the preferred color! Some of the recipes for this special promotion are described below.

These recipes were also featured on ABC TV in  Chicago.

 

 

header_dog

 

When the animal signs were being selected, the Jade Emperor held a race. The Dog and the Rooster were running even, then at a critical moment the Rooster cheated and flew ahead of the Dog, gaining tenth place in the Chinese Zodiac. To this day, the Dog has not forgiven the Rooster, and continues to chase him. With this dish, the Dog gets a little revenge! So all those born in the sign of the Dog, stop running and enjoy this delicious meal.

 

header_ox

 

People born in the sign of the Ox are known to be hardworking but reluctant to try new things. With fresh, juicy pineapple that complement the Ox's affinity for yellow, this deliciously different dish is sure to persuade the Ox to try something new, while gaining enough strength to accomplish important tasks.

 

header_tiger

 

With a love for a challenging and exciting life, people born in the year of the Tiger can be aggressive and sometimes impatient. This salad's Yin (cool) elements balance the Tiger's Yang (heat) life force, and energizes them for more action. The fruits from two trees evoke the Tiger's element — wood — and deliciously fresh ingredients recall their color, green.

 

header_pig

 

People born in the sign of the Pig have a relaxed attitude that brings equilibrium to daily challenges, which results in a long content life. With shrimp to recall the water element of the Pig sign and long noodles to emphasize their long life expectancy, this recipe is sure to have everyone slurping in the New Year. Noodles are an integral part of Chinese New Year celebrations and represent a wish for a long and happy life. Below is the full recipe.

Ying developed the following recipe exclusively for Celestial Seasonings.

Kung Pao Chicken with Celestial Seasonings Decaf Mandarin Orchard Green Tea

If you like Kung Pao Chicken, you will love this version. The green tea in this dish not only gives you a healthy burst of antioxidants, but also provides extra fresh flavor and aroma. For variation, replace chicken with shrimp or flavored tofu. You can also use other flavors of green tea such as Celestial Seasonings' Chamomile Green, Raspberry Gardens Green or Lemon Zinger Green teas. If you like spicy food, increase the amount of crushed red pepper or use whole dry peppers.

 

Green Tea Marinade:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Contents of 1 bag Celestial Seasonings Decaf Mandarin Orchard Green Tea
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon rice wine
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

 

Kung Pao Chicken:
1 pound skinned, boned chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch-wide strips
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
3 garlic cloves, minced
Contents of 1 bag Celestial Seasonings Decaf Mandarin Orchard Green Tea
1/2 cup (1 x 1/4-inch) julienne-cut red bell pepper
1/2 cup (1 x 1/4-inch) julienne-cut yellow bell pepper
3 julienne-cut green onions
2 tablespoons lemon juice
salt and white pepper to taste
4 tablespoons toasted peanuts or other nuts

 

Combine marinade ingredients in a medium bowl; add chicken. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

 

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; add ginger, garlic, and green tea. Sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add chicken marinade mixture and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in bell peppers, onions, and lemon juice. Season with salt and white pepper; cook and stir 1 1/2 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Toss in peanuts. Serve warm over rice or noodles.

 

Yield: 4 servings
