I was recently provided the opportunity to try one of the new Good Earth dry dinner kits, thanks to a generous offer from Good Earth & MyBlogSpark. Not only did they provide a Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit, but they also sent two sets of bamboo flatware, two bamboo dishes, a bamboo utility board and a 100% recyclable grocery tote!
We received the package awhile ago, but we finally had a chance to try it tonight. It was very simple to do and both my hubby and I participated in the preparation of the dinner. My hubby prepared the chicken and got it cooking, and then I took over with the sauce and making the pasta. It was very easy to do and probably took about 20 minutes total (if that).
While our 2-year-old didn't care too much for the dish, we thought it was pretty good. The chicken turned out really tender and moist. It was a good meal, but we thought it could use a bit more seasoning. Maybe some salt & pepper or a bit of garlic would do this dish good. It also has lots of healthy things like whole grain pasta and whole wheat flour, which admittedly aren't things we usually eat, so that may be part of it too. It was a well-rounded dish that paired nicely with a salad and bread.
(Here's a picture of the dinner cooking! Can you see the steam? Yummy.)
