2 Dream Dinner Recipe Reviews

Be sure to read my review of the preparation experience HERE.

I’m a busy working mom who strives to provide healthy food for my family in the most organized and time efficient way possible….. To that end, I was gifted with 6 entrees for my family to try from Dream Dinners.

Chicken Paella

The first recipe we tried was a one-pot breeze!  Described as “Tender white chicken and smoked sausage with garlic rice, sweet red peppers, artichoke hearts and fire roasted tomatoes creates a traditional Spanish classic that presents beautifully on any dinner table.” the paella did not disappoint.  Company claims that time to table from fridge is 30-40 minutes, which is definitely accurate.  My family gobbled up the yummy mixture of rice, kielbasa, chicken and spices.  Since we like spicy, we added some tabasco and it added just what we were looking for.  Really delicious.  Generous portions, where we even had leftovers for my husband’s lunch the next day.  Compare the pictures of what it’s “supposed” to look like, and what mine looked like.  Ha ha!  Definitely a do-over!

Chicken Marsala with Mushrooms

“Our all-natural, boneless chicken breasts are cooked with a savory, smooth mushroom and Marsala sauce.  Serve them over our classic mashed potatoes for a cozy evening dinner.”  Disclaimer – we had potatoes a couple of other meals that week, so we saved the already-to-go, just heat-and-serve mashed potatoes for another time.  Instead, I served the marsala with some roasted broccoli, also purchased from Dream Dinners as an optional side dish.  The chicken marsala had a generous amount of delicious sauce with mushrooms, wine, onions and cream.  Fridge to table was 20-25 minutes, as noted on the info sheets from Dream Dinners.  Pictures from the company and from our dinner are below.  Total do-over…. not a scrap of chicken left!
