This is a review of our 36th delivery from Home Chef. We have now made 141 of their recipes! Check them all out on my Home Chef Pinterest Board. This week we gave one recipe five out of five stars, one recipe four stars and two recipes three stars. Three of the four recipes were low calorie, low carb and gluten free. Each week they offer twelve recipes and a fruit basket to chose from. One is a smoothie, one is breakfast and usually three of them are vegetarian. Some are low calorie, low carb and some are gluten free. Each dinner entree is $9.95, smoothies are $4.95 and the fruit is $4.95. Occasionally, there is an special recipe that is higher in price due to the ingredients. They also occasionally offer desserts and appetizers.

Chicken Tikka Masala with Chicken Thighs, Basmati Rice & Garlic Naan

We both gave this recipe five out five stars. It was so scrumptious! I love any dish with curry in it. The sauce was perfection! It's made with olive oil, ginger, onion, garlic, tikka masala seasoning (garam, marsala, curry powder & cayenne pepper), tomato sauce, 1/2 cup water, cilantro, sour cream, salt and pepper. The naan bread was awesome with garlic, olive oil, salt & pepper. The Basmati Rice was also good. This recipe took about forty minutes to prepare and it had 918 calories. 

Maple Miso Glazed Salmon with Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Apples

We both gave this recipe three out of three stars. The salmon was really delicious, but we felt it needed more of the sauce and the side dish we weren't crazy about. The apples didn't have much flavor left after baking. I think Granny Smith Apples would have been better and some brown sugar or cinnamon. We didn't care for the combination of apples and brussels spouts. This recipe took about thirty-five minutes to prepare and it had 620 calories. It's a low calorie, low carb and gluten free recipe.

One Skillet Chicken Chasseur with Cremini Mushrooms, Tomatoes & Carrots

I gave this recipe three out of three stars and Hubby gave it two. It was good, it's just not a recipe I would repeat. It needed more thyme and carrot slices. I think it would have been better cooked in a slow cooker. It took about forty minutes to prepare and it had 593 calories. It's low calorie, low carb, gluten free, nut free and soy free recipe. 

Green Machine Chicken Salad with Tarragon & Lemon Vinaigrette

We both gave this recipe four out of five stars. I purchased it because it was low in calories and we like tarragon. I put this recipe off until the last day since it wasn't looking appetizing to me, so imagine my surprise when it was so tasty! The vinaigrette was so yummy! It's made of the zest of one lemon, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 1 tbsp. dijon mustard, 2 tbsp. olive oil, salt and pepper. The granny smith apple was a wonderful addition to the kale, spinach and arugula. It took about forty minutes to prepare and it had 622 calories. It's low calorie, low carb, gluten free, nut free and soy free. 

We enjoyed this week's recipes, they were delicious and easy to make. On Friday we are expecting the following recipes:
  1. Chinese BBQ Pork
  2. Roasted Asian Turkey Acorn Squash
  3. Rosemary Cider Chicken (repeat)
  4. Raspberry Peach Smoothies
