Our newest dinner kit entree, Lemon Thyme Chicken, is just in time for Mother’s Day.  Chicken thighs in a lemon, thyme and rosemary marinade, seared then baked in the oven together with baby spinach in a lemon butter cream sauce and served with roasted zucchini and squash.

And you’re going to love how easy it all is to pull off in 6 EASY STEPS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Heat a sauce pan with 2 tablespoons of oil on high heat.
  3. Remove chicken thighs from marinade and discard marinade. Sear chicken 2 minutes per side, in batches if necessary, then place in the provided pan.
  4. In the same sauce pan, saute the spinach for 1 minute, add sauce and bring it to a boil.
  5. Pour the spinach & sauce into the pan together with the chicken making sure the spinach is around the chicken and not over or under. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the temperature of chicken reaches 165 F.
  6. Throw the pre-made dressing on the zucchini and squash and put it in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Get it out of the oven, plate it and just like that your Mother’s Day Gourmet Lemon Thyme Chicken Dinner is guaranteed to impress. Pair it with a nice bottle of French Bordeaux red wine and dessert and you’re all set.
