A note about serious food allergies
Sometimes we like to think well outside the box, but sometimes we want to go back into the box, through the lid on top, and eat the food we've loved since we were kids. BBQ Chicken? Check. Corn on the cob? Check. (But not your childhood corn on the cob; corn elote with cilantro and cheese.) Fresh zucchini grilled to perfection? Not our childhood, but a welcome addition here. Order this box, and all your flavor boxes will be checked.
Tip: How to get pro-looking crosshatch marks: Imagine the grill is a clock and place meat on grill so tip points at 10 o'clock. After 2-3 minutes, rotate so tip points at 2, and cook another 2-3 minutes. Repeat on second side.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Grill the Chicken
Generously coat outdoor grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.

Add corn to grill and turn occasionally until lightly charred, 8-10 minutes.
Remove corn to a plate. Working in batches if necessary, add zucchini and cook until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes per side.
