FIGHTERFOOD! Meal delivery plan

Hi guys, So I decided to try out a home delivery meal plan. I’ve always wanted to try a service like this but never got around to picking one that suits me. All meals are delivered and are ready for you to just heat up and eat! This is so handy for me with a hectic work schedule and  also while studying at night.

There are different meal plans for you to choose from at different prices. You can also order the meals individually to suit. I went with meal plan 3 for €125 which gives me 6 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 6 dinners. You can pick from a range of choices with different options to suit everyone.

Meal Plan 03 – 6 Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner for €125

6 Dinners

Cajun Style Chicken X3

6 Lunches

I ordered this on the Thursday before 5pm and they had it delivered to the house on Saturday morning. The customer service was really helpful when I emailed about delivery times. They texted me at 8.15am to let me know my delivery time and then again 20 minutes before they arrived.

I started my meals today so after dinner I will update with pictures, nutritional values, energy levels etc

Savory Sunday – Butter Chicken Recipe!

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sliced, diced chicken breasts
  • Mixed vegetables of your choice (sweetcorn, peas and spinach used here)
  • 1 jar of Patak’s Butter Chicken cooking sauce.
  • Cashew Nuts
  • Oil

Method:

Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan and heat up for 1 minute. Then add the 4 chicken breasts and fry until the meat has browned in colour on both sides. Continue by adding your chosen vegetables and cashews and allow to cook for about 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Step 1

We are using Patak’s Butter Chicken which is my all time favourite sauce. This one we picked up in Aldi for €1.49!

Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables and allow to simmer for 15 minutes.

You should stir occasionally to make sure nothing sticks… try not to taste it as it cooks (Seán….)

While this is simmering, we added some brown rice to a pot of boiling water which cooks in 15minutes just as your butter chicken is ready.
