What is Home Chef?

Home Chef is an incredible meal kit service that delivers fresh ingredients and easy-to-follow cooking instructions right to your door. As you can imagine, I was skeptical about trying out a meal kit service because, of course, I cook and develop recipes for a living. But when I first tried out their meals last year I was SO impressed with not only how quickly they came together, but also how flavorful and filling each meal turned out to be.

Home Chef convenience meets AK deliciousness

Back in early 2023, the Home Chef team asked if I’d like to share some of my favorite comforting recipes through their meal delivery service. I jumped at the chance to get my recipes on your table at the touch of a few buttons.

Throughout the year I hand-selected reader favorite recipes and tested them countless times here in Chicago with the Home Chef team to ensure that they would be absolutely perfect when the ingredients got to your doorstep. These recipes are:

  • Filled with cozy flavors (you know I don’t skimp)
  • Packed with protein and veggies to keep you full and satisfied
  • So easy to make thanks to the pre-portioned ingredients

They’re truly the perfect way to nourish your body and brighten up the winter “blahs.”

How it works

The process of getting dinner on your table each week couldn’t be easier:

  1. Choose your meals. There are tons of new meals hitting the Home Chef menu each week to fit your cravings and preferences. You’ll see 2 different Ambitious Kitchen recipes on the menu each week in February – just look for the AK badge!
  2. Get the meals. Place your order by Friday at 12PM CST to get all of the pre-portioned ingredients for each recipe sent straight to your door the following week with easy-to-follow recipe cards.
  3. Cook & enjoy. Follow the recipes and get delicious, comforting dinners on your table FAST. Trust me, your family, partner, or roommate will thank you.

The recipes

My favorite part of this process was choosing and testing out all of the incredible recipes. We settled on 8 fan favorites, so you can choose from 2 each week in February. A few highlights are my:

  • Greek-Style Turkey Meatballs with lemon orzo & creamy feta yogurt sauce. This one was a MUST, maybe because it just so happens to be Abra’s all-time favorite AK recipe. The meatballs are herby and juicy, and the lemon orzo pairs perfectly with the creamy, savory yogurt sauce.
  • Caramelized Onion and Chicken Pasta Bake with spinach & parmesan. A comfort food classic! Tender pasta, juicy chicken, and lots of sweet and savory flavors from caramelized onions and a parmesan cheese sauce.
  • Salmon Taco Bowls with fajita rice. Perfectly spiced salmon with fluffy sofrito rice (my go-to in so many of my recipes) and lots of fresh toppings. Truly heaven in a bowl.
  • Jalapeño Popper-Stuffed Chicken with crispy smashed potatoes. The chicken is wonderfully crispy on the outside with a cheesy, slightly spicy filling and OMG Abra and I couldn’t stop sneaking bites. We got to pair it with my famous crispy smashed potatoes for a 10/10 meal.
