    When this is ordered from a meal delivery service, it usually came with an instruction card, which had all the directions listed down as steps so that it is convenient for even a person who is cooking for the first time.

    The delivery box was neatly packed and properly sealed. All ingredients were inside plastic transparent boxes, the ingredients that came with the dish were:

    • 2 garlic ciabatta bread
    • 5 grams of Italian seasoning
    • parsley
    • free-range chicken thigh fillets
    • 1 sweet potato
    • 1 onion

    All the ingredients were fresh and cut in the perfect size already. I was a bit curious whether or not the vegetables were fresh but to my surprise, they really were as fresh as you can get. You will require some common kitchen items like 2 garlic cloves, 125 ml. (½ cup) boiling water, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 tablespoons tomato paste, ½ Tablespoon sugar.

    How to cook the delicious Italian chicken and sweet potato

    Here are the instructions so that you can also cook this meal at home. What you have to do first is that you need to chop the onion into small pieces, after that you need to peel and cut the sweet potatoes in small 2 cm. bits, once you are done with that carefully pick out the parsley leaves and cut the stems.

    The main part is cutting the 2 garlic cloves and chicken into small 2 cm. cubes. Once your chicken is done, warm 125 ml. of water and combine it with 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning so that it dissolves.

    It’s time to get the chicken ready to put the chicken with ½ tablespoon of the Italian seasoning into a mixing dish.

    Heat the frying pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and while it heats coat the chicken with salt and pepper seasoning. Cook the chicken until it has a brownish texture on it.

    Add all the ingredients that you prepared before cooking the chicken into the pan and stir it. After that add two tablespoons of tomato paste and start stirring it again. Decrease the stove flame and let it cook for 10 to 15 minutes.

    Put the garlic bread in the oven for almost 3 minutes. When you notice that the vegetables are soft and the chicken is browned add 12 teaspoons of sugar. Take out the dish on a plate and season it with parsley leaves that you picked out and have it with the garlic bread you backed up earlier.

    The meal was ready within 30 minutes and I was impressed by the way it tasted and the way the chicken flavored my whole mouth. To be honest, I did not expect it to be as good as the food you get in a restaurant. I highly recommend my readers to try this dish for themselves. It’s definitely a must-try for chicken lovers.

    Super yummy Apricot Chicken Patties

    This is another chicken dish that everybody should try at least once. Depending on the availability in your area, you can order a meal kit for apricot ginger chicken.

Pour the burghul in a heatproof container with 2 teaspoons of virgin oil and 1/2 a tablespoon of red wine vinegar and start stirring it to tell it gets combined and then leave it covered for 10 minutes.

    After that put the apricots in a container in which you can boil them and keep on boiling them for 5 minutes so that it gets soft, cut the garlic into tiny bits and pieces and do the same with the mint leaves.

    Remove the apricots from the water and place them into a bowl and season it with garlic, chicken, mint, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to press them and give them any shape you want them to be in.
