Ingredients for Pan-Seared Chicken and Sauteed BulgurUp first was the Pan-Seared Chicken and Sauteed Bulgur. All of the ingredients come pre-measured and with step by step instructions for preparing your meal. Blue Apron meals plans, shops, measures and delivers for you. After about 30 minutes of cooking Adam and I had an amazing dinner and a glass of wine. Blue Apron makes cooking easy and cooks on every level can learn something here.

Pan-Seared Chicken and Sauteed Bulgur

My only experience with bulgur wheat was in a warm cereal and it tasted great with the shallot, garlic and parsley.

Up next was the Cod and Pattypan Squash En Papillote. Pattypan squash was a vegetable I never tried before and cooking with parchment paper was new to me so I really enjoyed making this meal.

Cod and Pattypan Squash En Papillote IngredientsIn case you were wondering En Papillote means food cooked and served in a paper wrapper. While the term sounds fancy (blame it on France), it’s actually very simple to cook with the parchment paper.

And finally, the Filipino – Style Beef Picadillo with Chayote Squash and Jasmine Rice.

    and I think I’m loving this recipe now.. I just wish that if I try to cook this at home, it would be the same taste and would be more beautiful plating just like yours 🙂
