Prep + Pared Meal Kit Review - Hummus Baked Chicken
My husband (aka B) made this and found the instructions to be clear and easy to follow.  The instructions say that this should take 20 minutes to make, but (just like the last recipe), this was not the case.  The chicken was supposed to bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees (or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees).  We found that we needed an additional 5 minutes to cook it thru.

The Result
Prep + Pared Meal Kit Review - Hummus Baked ChickenI loved this meal.  It was quick and easy and very filling.  I would have this one again in a second – and I think B felt the same way.  These are a great last-minute meal option, and I’m hoping they come out with even more options soon.

Does your local store carry Prep + Pared Meal Kits?  If you have tried them, what’d you think?

    This looks easy and yummy. I like that you have to actually make the hummus from scratch rather than having in pre-made. Wish we had a Kroger…

    I have made a few with hits and misses I believe the portion sizes are really small. Just made the bacon honey mustard glazed chicken. The chicken was just randomly sized chunks of chicken that cooked very unevenly. Too much mustard but not enough bacon. I would not buy this one again. Citrus garlic chicken sauce and carne arsada steak are next.
