Chicken Pestorella Burger (Marley Spoon Review)

Chicken Pestorella Burger


Recipe box delivery service Marley Spoon are launching a new family meal box service in November. The plan is specifically tailored to British families offering fast, easy and healthy recipes, delivered with the exact ingredients needed to cook them at home. Every week five new recipes are available to choose from with recipes such as this tasty Chicken Pestorella Burger (recipe below), meatballs, pork chops, chilli, tagines.... with lots of tasty veggie options too.

Marley Spoon kindly sent me a box to try out myself. The box arrived promptly with all of the non perishable ingredients grouped into large brown bags - a separate bag for each recipe and the fridge ingredients in a refrigerated pack. Most of the packaging could be recycled and all of the ingredients were in a good condition upon arrival. Recipe sheets were also included and I noticed they even have a hotline to phone for any recipe box related culinary emergency!


I tried one of the recipes for lunch today to see if it tasted as good as it looked in the photo! I opted for the Chicken Pestorella Burger which took minimal effort to prepare and didn't let down on taste. It was delicious.

Marley Spoon have indicated the family style dishes will be big enough to feed 2 Adults and 2-3 Children and start from £4.35 a portion with options to cook 2, 3 or 4 times a week. A little pricey maybe, but for a busy working family it might just be the ideal solution to the mad panic at the end of the working day when you find yourself rooting around for something quick and healthy for tea.

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
