Longos Meal Kits - Red Wine Braised Chicken



Longos Red Wine Braised Chicken Meal Kits

Longos has come out with really handy meal kits that use fresh ingredients to create delicious and somewhat fancy meals for two! These meals are perfect for a date night or if you’re having a friend over with a glass of wine (come on Fall!). The instructions are clear (with pictures!) and all the ingredients are in the box and ready to go. It's also kind of fun doing a food 'un-boxing'! lol

I grabbed the Red Wine Braised Chicken kit and it was amazing! My only criticism would be to add some kind of carb. It’s quite saucy and super rich, so wild rice or quinoa would be perfect (and you could stretch it a little further and maybe get a lunch out of it as well).

Each step is dumbed down into user friendly steps with photos. They thought of everything from flour to dredge the chicken breast and de-alcoholized red wine to deglaze the pan.

It even comes with all of the fresh produce, carton of cream, packages of shredded cheese, etc. that you would need. This could save some bickering in the kitchen from forgotten items and definitely helps if you want to plan a nice meal for your partner but have a fussy toddler at the grocery store with you! lol

   I made two plates as pictured above (sorry, my photos aren't pretty, we were hungry and just put Taylor to bed so it was slightly rushed lol). It should also be noted that I cooked the entire meal on the stove top and did not put in the oven as per the directions. It was also so (read: too) cheesy and I only used 1 of the 2 packs provided and in my opinion, the chicken breasts were a little on the small side for the price of the kit.

All in all, it was an easy meal to make and I had fun following the simplified instructions. I think the best part of buying this meal kit is that I can now re-make (a healthier version of) this dish at home with ingredients I usually have on hand. I rarely make a cream-sauce anything and since this was easy and delicious, I'm happy I can tweak it for Taylor and Tom.
