We tried three meals. A classic chicken dish, 40 Cloves Garlic Chicken with Purple Smashed Potatoes and Spinach, wins hands down. Four boneless chicken thighs are pan-fried in butter and olive oil until brown. The garlic cloves are added to the pan along with wine and broth to create a savory chicken dish. Minced shallot, fresh parsley, and other seasonings flavor the purple smashed potatoes. The spinach is sautéed in a bit of the sauce from the chicken until slightly wilted. I found the meal to be delicious and filling. The chicken was flavorful and tender, and the potatoes and spinach were quite tasty. I liked them the whole meal. My husband loves chicken thighs, but he blew off the veggies. This was by far his favorite of the three meals.
The Roasted Kale and Beet Salad with Figs and Goat Cheese is a meal in and of itself. Roasted fresh kale and sweet golden beets are the stars of this salad. The sweet figs, salty goat cheese, and rich tangy balsamic dressing transform this salad into main dish. I loved the combination of the figs and goats cheese with the roasted kale and beets. I though the dish had just the right amount of sweet and salty. My husband doesn’t eat beets (doubt he ever tried one), so I told him the beets were mild sweet potatoes. He ate them all before I told him the truth. Hey, whatever works!
The Juicy Lucia Burger with Baked Fries is the ultimate Italian burger. It’s a combination of ground beef and hot Italian sausage shaped into four patties. Two patties are topped with mozzarella pearls, fresh basil, and strips of roasted red peppers (yum). A second patty is placed on top. The two burgers are pinched together to form a stuffed burgers. The grilled burgers are topped with garlic mayonnaise and served with a side of baked fries topped with Parmesan cheese. Super juicy, the burger epitomized traditional Italian flavors. The baked fries completed the flavor profile.
Would I order Chef’d meals again? You bet. I love the recipes and the fresh ingredients. It’s meal planning made easy.
