HelloFresh Review: Crispy Buffalo-Spiced Chicken with Blue Cheese Sauce, Scallion Mashed Potatoes & Roasted Carrots
Spoiler alert: we have ordered tons of HelloFresh meals, but this meal is probably our most favorite to date!!
I let my husband help pick our HelloFresh meals this week, and he selected this Buffalo Chicken recipe. I must say, I wasn't overly excited about this one--I'm not a huge fan of buffalo chicken, and it didn't sound super appealing. But the flavor of the chicken was amazing!! In fact, I immediately added the main seasoning (Frank's RedHot Original Seasoning--affiliate link below) to my shopping cart. HelloFresh listed this one as "spicy," but I thought it had the perfect amount of heat. I used the hot sauce sparingly, and my son (who hates spicy food) omitted completely--but even he loved this one! The chicken was very tender and the blue cheese sauce was the perfect complement--it toned down the heat of the seasoning a little. We commented on how great this meal throughout our dinner--my husband and I both agreed that it was our favorite so far. His most frequent comment: "You MUST order this one any time it's on the menu!!"
Another comment: I know I've mentioned this on the blog before, but normally I find the HelloFresh carrots pretty "blah." But the fry seasoning on these made them taste great! In fact, the only part of this meal that was a little blah were the potatoes--but they certainly were still good. This meal is one of their "Hall of Fame" menus, and I completely see why!
Recipe note: my husband made the carrots, and he said that while it called for salt, he said that the carrots had so much fry seasoning that he decided to skip it--I thought they had the perfect amount of salt without.
I am definitely going to try and re-create this one! Recipe below:
So, take our advice and order this one if you can!
