Good Earth Dry Dinner Kit Review and Giveaway-- CLOSED

Winner is comment #28! Congratulations Josephine!

Recently I was sent a Good Earth Dry Dinner Kit to review. I was sent the Mediterranean chicken with angel hair pasta. I wasn't too sure how I would feel about this meal as I don't usually eat boxed foods but I wanted to give it a shot because with a mobile, attention-demanding baby, it is hard to get dinner cooked.

This meal is ready in about 20 minutes from start to finish and I used far less dishes that I normally do when cooking...less clean up! I LOVE that! This meal was really super easy to prepare. The meal came with almost everything I needed; all I had to have besides the boxed dinner is 1/4 milk, EVOO, and 1 cup of hot water....things we always have. The instructions said to buy chicken breasts and slice them like tenders so to make my life even easier, I bought chicken that was already sliced in that manner. I coated the chicken with the spiced flour, browned it and then added the Mediterranean spices, cream sauce, water and milk...and let it simmer for 8 minutes. Seriously, SO easy. Oh and I boiled the whole grain pasta.

As I was cooking it, my husband came in and commented on how good it smelled and let me tell you..it tasted really good too. I was pleasantly surprised as I don't normally like or make boxed meals. But seriously, this did not taste like a boxed meal. Delicious!

And this is a huge selling point for me: 100% whole grain, no trans fat, no artificial flavors, no artifical preservatives, no MSG- just add meat and, voila! Dinner is served! No guilt! And I am guessing that if you wanted to go an even healthier route, you could probably bake the chicken and add the seasoning, milk, etc. just as you would in the pan.

Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of the end result before I scarfed it all down...seriously, it was that good! I am really excited to try some of the other selections that Good Earth provides!

Coming to stores this June, Good Earth dry dinner kits offer a selection of four delectable meals:

Mediterranean Chicken with angel hair pasta,

Spicy Citrus Glazed Shrimp with angel hair pasta,

Herb Crusted Chicken with mushroom risotto

and Tuscan Chicken with penne pasta.

Oh and did I mention my kit came with a cute little bamboo set and 100% recyclable bag? So awesome! I am especially in love with my little bamboo cutting board! It comes in handy when preparing Lilly's meals!

Good Earth and MyBlogSpark has generously offered one Mommy Saves Money reader a Good Earth Gift pack that includes a Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit, two sets of bamboo flatware, two bamboo dishes, a bamboo utility board and a 100% recyclable grocery tote.
