In the Kitchen: Home Chef: Sesame-Crusted Chicken over Butter Lettuce Salad


Hi, Everyone!

In an effort to spend less time meal planning and more time reading, I decided to give Home Chef a try. It costs less than taking the whole family to a restaurant, and it seemed like a fun way to add some new recipes to my repertoire.

Tonight: Sesame-Crusted Chicken over Butter Lettuce Salad


Looks tasty, right? Well, it was, and at only 478 calories, you can’t beat this recipe!

There really isn’t much cooking involved in a salad, so other than cooking the chicken, I really didn’t have much to do. I pretended I was a fancy food photographer instead.


See how I managed to get just the tiniest bit of radish in the corner of the lime picture? The radish symbolizes the struggle of all artists everywhere trying to conform to the rules of society while still expressing themselves. Or something.

If I make it again: I’d use like, a third of the amount of sugar the recipe calls for and swap out the soy sauce for liquid aminos. But honestly, it’s a salad. I don’t really need to save instructions on how to throw a bunch of vegetables in a bowl and pop some chicken on top.




  1. How are you liking Home Chef so far? I’ve been mostly doing Blue Apron but have a code for a discounted week. I like having meals planned out, and not having to worry about getting groceries as often.
