To maximize freshness put the raw chicken straight into the freezer on arrival. Defrost when needed in a couple of minutes in the microwave.
1. Preheat oven to 390F. Tip root vegetables & bacon onto flat baking sheet, season with salt & pepper. Roast for 15 minutes.
2. Season chicken breasts with salt & pepper on both sides. Move the vegetables to one side of the roasting tray. Place the chicken next to the vegetables. Spoon the maple mustard glaze over the chicken breasts and root vegetables. Roast for a further 15 minutes.
3. Transfer kale to a microwaveable bowl, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of water and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes depending on your microwave. Drain before serving. Alternatively steam the kale over a pot of boiling water on the stove top or pan fry in oil.
4. Serve chicken on a bed on the roasted vegetables, scatter over the cooked kale and squeeze 1/4 lemon per plate or to your taste.

Lots of veggies, which were delicious! I did prepare this dish differently than directed. Veggies were done on convection bake. Chicken was done stove top in frying pan (I can get a crispy crust on it this way). Kale was done stove top in same pan as chicken. I won't use as much sauce next time--just my preference. The sauce is very good, I just like things drier. I will put the extra sauce on the side. This dish took much longer than most due to how I prepared it (about 30 min). Will order it again.
I have ordered this recipe four times now. I really appreciate the convenience and the taste of the final product. In my mind you could forget the kale and the lemon. I'd like more of the vegetables. The 2 pieces of chicken breast are plenty for 2 people. I really do like the maple-mustard sauce.
I was away and forgot to check my order. We received this and I was surprised we were cooking in the oven. I steamed the kale and enjoyed the kale…
Chicken was tough, the root vegetables and onion were seasoned with bacon.. then the mustard maple sauce. The result was unpleasant. We usually love our dinners, have a few that we ordered that was not top of our list but this just
Reminded me of the term “too many cooks spoil the broth”. I was thinking ,
“too many approaches ruins the meal“
This dinner was delicious. I did what some others recommended and reserved some of the sauce to pour over the finished product. You could bottle that mustard sauce and sell it. The chicken was flavorful, could have been a bit bigger. Absolutely loved the veggies, clearly the star of the meal. The bacon was just enough for outstanding flavor. Could order this every week, its that good.
So far almost every one of these dishes was absolutely the best! The fact that all the prep work is done for you but leaves the protein for me to cook, that makes all the difference. Hands down the best. We have tried 4 or 5 so called meal kits and these dishes leave every one in the dust. I just can't say enough
