A note about serious food allergies

Crispy peppers crust the chicken with a satisfying crunch, and the drizzle of balsamic glaze turns the “tastes great” into “this is amazing, and I'd give my right arm for another piece of chicken.” No need to go that far! Just order the 4-serving. (You're welcome for that life hack.)

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1 and 4, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1 and 4, cooking until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner. Remove from burner. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim woody ends off asparagus and slice into ½" pieces (leave tips intact). Peel and slice potatoes into thin rounds. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Potato-Asparagus Mixture

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add potatoes to hot pan. Cover, and cook until slightly tender, 3-5 minutes. Uncover, and add asparagus, seasoning blend, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until asparagus is lightly charred and tender, but still crisp, 2-3 minutes. Stir in cream cheese, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner.

  3. 3

    Bake the Gratin

    Transfer half the potato-asparagus mixture to prepared casserole dish. Top evenly with half the cheese and half the panko. Repeat layering with remaining potato-asparagus mixture, cheese, and panko. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Bake in hot oven until cheese is melted and potatoes are tender, 17-19 minutes. While gratin bakes, cook chicken.

  4. 4

    Cook the Chicken

    Return pan used to cook gratin to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from burner. Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken evenly with mayonnaise and crispy red peppers, pressing gently to adhere. Drizzle chicken with balsamic glaze. Bon appétit!
