Slightly Better than Average
How Did the Balsamic Glazed Chicken Thighs meal turn out?
This dish had its pros and cons.
- Chicken was moist and flavorful
- Broccoli had a crispy crunchy texture
- Potatoes were very good
- The balsamic sauce tasted good
- Some of the chicken skin was too hard and crackly to eat
- It was just too “normal”
Prep and Cleanup
It was pretty easy to make, but the cleanup is definitely a chore.
I probably wouldn’t order it again. It was good, but not great. And more importantly, this was a meal I probably could have accomplished on my own without meal kit help. In fact, it reminded me of a TV dinner, pulled out of the freezer and popped into a microwave.
Ok, it wasn’t that boring, but the presentation had a strong resemblance to the pictures on the boxes of various frozen dinners I’ve seen.
If a dish feels like a “normal, every day kind of meal”, then I’m not all that interested in it, unless the flavor is off the chart great.
If you are a chicken and potatoes kind of person, you should try this meal.
For everyone else, hang on. More interesting meals coming shortly.
