The holiday season is upon us and honestly, during this time of year, there is nothing I love more than all the delicious food you can smell being cooked in a kitchen. However, it’s also the same time of year when I feel like I have even less time to cook except for special occasions because of all the added things on my to-do list. So I knew if I wanted to cook at all I was going to need some reinforcements and when I saw the option for Southern Fried Chicken for Green Chef this month I knew it was meant to be.
When I started with my first box from Green Chef I honestly didn’t think it would stick. Seriously, it felt like one of those things where people tell you it’s easy and simple. Then you get the recipe cards with the amount of time they say it will take to cook it and it’s just a hot mess. But every time I have prepared a meal I have been pleasantly surprised at the fact of how simple it actually is and the fact I actually finish within 5 minutes of the time shown.
You all know I love take-out, delivery, and frozen and I feel no shame in the busy life game of feeding my tiny humans and hubs. But in all honesty I really do love cooking so being able to do that without stressing myself out helps!
Plus it sort of makes me feel like a Masterchef being able to whip something up that seems straight chef-quality but is honestly a “press play” situation all I have to do is chop and cook. Everything comes in the Green Chef box measured, separated, and ready to go. I don’t have to come up with an idea of what to cook, then find a recipe, buy all the things and then put it together. I just have to wait for the Green Chef box to be delivered.
I will be honest this Southern Fried Chicken was too good and if I could order it as an option every month from Green Chef I would. Everyone ate it and the mashed potatoes were so good it felt like an early thanksgiving pre-meal.
If I am being honest I will definitely be continuing to do this in the future! It’s easy, delicious, requires seriously minimal work for me and everyone has been loving the fun options. So don’t be shy and give it a try yourself, I really think you will be surprised like I was at the fact it’s not a gimmick. Also, the wonderful people at Green Chef even included this $80 off coupon across 4 boxes, and if you do give it a go be sure to take me or let me know what you’re cooking!
