I’ve been intrigued by the meal kit services that cropped up a few years ago. I want to try them, but I’m a little scared for some reason. Also, they’re not cheap.
When I saw this Stouffer’s family meal kit in Kroger’s frozen food section, I decided it would be worth a try.
The box contains packaged chicken pieces, broccoli, a rice and quinoa mixture, and some sauce. You start by boiling water in a pan. You’ll use the hot water to melt the frozen sauce.
While the water is boiling you heat some oil in a skillet to cook the chicken.
You’ll heat the quinoa mix and broccoli on a plate in the microwave while the other stuff is cooking.
Put the chicken, the sauce, and the broccoli together and serve the quinoa on the side.
- Easy to prepare
- Not too pricey
- Would be good to cook for a small dinner party
I’m glad I tried this meal kit and I will definitely buy it again. I imagine the offerings from Blue Apron and the like are more flavorful since they included herbs, spices, and other fancy food elements. But if you don’t want to spend the extra money, and do a little more work, this kit might be the next best thing.
