Get Dinner Done With Green Chef

Get Dinner Done With Green Chef

I received this product for free from Moms Meet (, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet Blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.

Our winter calendar has been swamped with lots of things to do, and finding time for work, kids, cleaning and cooking has been very challenging. I was more than happy to get some help in the kitchen and jumped at the chance to try out Green Chef, the new meal kit delivery service.

Green Chef is a USDA-Certified Organic meal kit delivery service with pre-measured and largely prepped ingredients, including homemade sauces and marinades. The kits come with easy-to-master, chef-crafted recipes that use fresh, seasonal ingredients from suppliers in about thirty minutes. They have two person plans and family plans for four people. They also offer Carnivore, Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Paleo and Vegan plans and each kit comes with two meals for the week to feed either two people or four people in the family plan.

Our Green Chef kit that I chose was the Omnivore Family Plan. Our kit came right on time and everything in it was fresh and cold. I was able to open it and put it in the refrigerator right away. The first dinner that we decided to make was the Chicken Cassoulet.

Chicken Cassoulet is a traditional French dish that is great for wintry nights. We pan seared chicken thighs and baked them with cremini mushrooms, carrots, garlic, cannellini beans, crushed tomatoes and a breadcrumb topping. For the side dish of this dinner a baby kale salad with radishes and a Honey-Dijon balsamic vinaigrette.

The directions are very specific and even have pictures to help you a long the way. The only things you may need are salt, pepper, cooking oil and any pans and bowls. Most of the ingredients are already measured and chopped. Some things needed some chopping but the measuring is all done. You follow directions and it works great!

I have never heard of Chicken Cassoulet, but we found it incredibly filling and hearty. My four year old son liked it and even loved the kale and radish salad with the salad dressing. I thought it was a good amount of food.

The second meal we received in our Green Chef box was Veggie Quesadillas. We make quesadillas a lot in our house. In fact we have a quesadilla maker so I was eager to try out a new recipe. The Veggie Quesadillas came with a lime-dressed slaw and rice in a cilantro-scallion sauce. The whole wheat quesadillas are filled with Monterey Jack cheese, plus red bell peppers, pinto beans and corn that has been seasoned in a paprika-cumin spice blend. These were very easy to make like most quesadillas. I loved the flavors that were added in them. This was also a lot of food for a family of four and everyone devoured it all very quickly!

Green Chef really was great to have all the ingredients and recipes on my doorstep right when I needed and expected them. They have really delicious recipes that you can easily make any time you want. Some of the other family dinners that they offer are Thyme-Roasted Chicken with cauliflower-white bean mash and roasted veggies, Tuna Tostadas with Spanish rice, jicama, mango salsa and pickled peppers, Ginger-Tamari Steak, spinach, cabbage, pad Thai noodles and peanut sauce and Greek Veggie Pitas with sweet potato fries, couscous, hummus, feta and olives.

Green Chef offers culinary delights delivered to your door and made easy to learn how to cook. It’s great to eat delicious culinary masterpieces suited to you and your family’s dietary guidelines. Green Chef is easy to use and even change plans or deliveries when you need to. Feel free to go on their website and check out their delicious menu!

The Home Décor 2-in-1 Oil and Vinegar Sprayer has an adjustable trigger to prevent unwanted clogging and messy drips.

We love the Home Décor 2-in-1 Oil and Vinegar Sprayer. It is so much nicer than the usual two bottle oil and vinegar. It takes up less room on our table and counter top. I love when we have guest over for dinner you can hand it to a person for their salad and they have everything they need.

It works great to use on salads, to mist your skillet before frying anything, awesome way to spray seafood, meat and vegetables for grilling and it is great at coating pans for baking.

Celery Chicken

 We are constantly on the look out for different things to do with chicken. It is such a cheap and protein packed meat, that it is hard not to have some in your diet. Take your regular chicken breasts to the next level of a meal without all the fuss!

Celery Chicken

- Package of Chicken breasts 4-6 servings
- can of cream of chicken soup
- water
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 tsp Paprika
- 1/4 tsp. Parsley
- About 3 chopped celery stalks (enough to stuff the chicken)

- Open and pour the can of cream of chicken soup into a bowl with two cans of water, mix and put aside. Slice open chicken breasts to make a small pocket in the chicken. Mix spices and celery in a separate bowl together. Stuff spices and celery into pockets of chicken. Put stuffed chicken into baking pan. Pour soup and water mixture over the chicken. Sprinkle with extra Paprika on top.
Cook at 350 (degree Fahrenheit) for around 45 minutes or until juices run clear. Enjoy!
