In the Kitchen: Hello Fresh: Chicken & Nectarine Panzanella

In theKitchen


Hi, Everyone!

In an effort to spend less time meal planning and more time reading, I decided to give Hello Fresh 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: Chicken and Nectarine Panzanella with Mint, Zucchini, and fresh Mozzarella



I’ll admit I’m less than impressed with Hello Fresh’s customer service (every e-mail they sent me was either a day late or for the previous week, plus my first shipment arrived damaged), but this meal was quite tasty.

It’s hard to go wrong with salad, I suppose.


As usual I tried to stretch the recipe to feed not only Husband and myself, but our two kidlets as well. I tossed an extra yellow squash and an extra nectarine into the mix, added some string cheese and veggie nuggets, and voila: the kid version!




If I make it again: I’m learning that most of what makes these meal delivery recipes special is wording, so from now on I’m going to refer to any salad with croutons as “panzanella.” Thanks for the tip, Hello Fresh!




Did my kids eat it: The whole family loves nectarines and zucchini, and the kiddos love nuggets (I love that they don’t care if they’re made with chicken or soy & mushrooms), so this was a big hit all around.
