For the first time (and I love this dish), the chicken was with bone and skin, prefer/is better with a skinless chicken breast!
chicken was unreal
Chicken was great. The broccoli could have used seasoning though. Overall I liked the dish a lot.
The chicken was somewhat dry
Delicious and the sides were great
This meal is delicious. Very savory and satisfying. Good portion size.
The chicken, vegetables and sauce were excellent, however the saffron risotto is certainly not risotto and just rice with some saffron flavor. Also, there are extra veggies like broccoli and not sure what else. Would prefer a simple salad to the rice.
My husband said next time this is in the menu order it. Fabulous
This was very tasty and unique. Good portion size as well. Loved the sauce!
Yummy and delish food, i will surely order again

You are my favorite chef!
This dish is going into my regular rotation. Chicken was perfectly cooked. It wasn't dry or chewy. Sauce is bomb too
Delicious. Love the basil potatoes.
Very basily potatoes, chicken not bad
Delicious! Good portion size. Chicken was perfectly cooked.
A tasty classic!
So decadent for being so healthy! Delicious!
I thought this was delicious!!! I had for lunch. Instructions on point.
Excellent seasoning, especially on the potatoes. Nice dish. Again, I thought the side dish was unnecessary.
Too salty, and chicken overcooked.
Potatoes were great. Chicken just sliced with a tiny bit of spinach
Not pleased that the extra side I was given was couscous when it says the side is a 'simple salad.' Couscous does not go with the dish, nor is it necessary with potatoes.
The best cookunity meal so far!
Salt bomb. Probably from the sauce? Definitely not to my taste.
Very disappointing., especially as I expected the most from this dish. Everything was very salty & almost inedible.
Excellent and delicious!
A little disappointed with the potatoes. It shows beautiful roasted ones in the picture but they send it with green mashed potatoes. I wish they would make the pictures more accurate
These are awesome!
The best everr!!
I freaking love this. The best lamb ever!!!
Excellent and delicious
Amazing!!! I loved the spicy twist!
Okay, but very small ! I had one spoon of mashed potatoes only and very little meat.
Husband loves the short rib sliders! So much I didn't get to taste them last time we ordered. This time I will!
Sliders were good!
Would b better if the bread came separated. In the heating process the bread ended up burning bc the meat took linger to heat
Outstanding- great mix of flavors- would order again
Your tracking tech is still so maddeningly backward.
Couldn't find sauce. What you sent was a cup of congealed. Something' That I wouldn't put on food. Not the kind of presentation you usually do.?
Everything was delicious! The fish was just right and the mashed potatoes hit the spot. Maybe a few more pieces of cauliflower. The string beans were a treat!
too much breading on the fish. Didn't need it.
Great portion and even better than I had expected. Very tasty.
Does the listed calorie count include the entire meal? Seems too good to be true!
An amazing dish! Very hearty and delicious, loved the chicken and the risotto was just scrumptious!
Moist chicken even though it's a big piece--wonderful! My husband hated anything truffled till he tasted this risotto.
Had to add a lot of pepper to it, lacked a little bit of fresh flavor
Chicken came out a bit dry. Peas and Risotto were good
Way way too much salt.

Chicken dry. Really happy truffle sauce was separate, thank you on behalf of non-truffle fans!
Because we were crunched for time we heated the chicken up in the microwave and as a result it was a little dry. Taste wise, the chicken was a bit more bland than we would have preferred but the Risotto was delicious.
Chicken was very dry. Pretty bland dish.
Favor was delicious, but chicken was a bit overcooked & tough
Truffle Risotto was AMAZING! Roasted Chicken was a little dry. Woud have preferred a chicken quarter maybe instead of a breast.
it came 15 minutes too later
I've had this dish several times and it never disappoints. If you like risotto you can't go wrong with this dish.
yummy meal. good flavors, on the heavy side. don't get if you're looking for a light meal. satisfying. only thing i'd say is cookunity continuously serves veggies as a tiny side and the portion size of the carbohydrate is huge. i hope they would consider downsizing the carbs and adding more veg. two of my friends who ordered made similar comments.
All in all it was a very tasty dish. The chicken was a little dry, but I would definitely order it again!
So, I give this a one for a single reason. The nutrition info said 180 or so grams of salt...no way. This dish was super salty! Maybe 1800.
Very good, nice piece of chicken
This item ran out. This review is actually for the Salmon (I was called to select a replacement).
Shared with hubby, loved it!
Wayyyy too small a portion.
Very tasty. I love the spice.
The portion was small - taste was good
It could be delivered less cooked. It is challenging to hear up and keep medium rare. Also the portion is a little small.
Overall the cooking time suggested for microwave always leaves my food cold, but I guess it's my microwave.
Steak was very fatty and lacked flavor. :(
So disappointed. I have received this meal before and it was great. Tonight Not Good. Five tiny pieces of meat about an inc long. Six pieces of corn on the cob. Truly a disappointment
The flavor of this dish is just outstanding. The sauce is perfect and delicious, and the chili flakes on the corn was a great addition. One of my favorite CookUnity meals.
wrong meal delivered. they brought the cod instead
The food did not arrive within the allotted time slot.
The meat was over cooked, especially after heating it up. The corn on the cob and sauce were delicious.
Was great...only thing I would say it is a little small...if you are really hungry is not enough
Inedible. Steak was way over cooked and also really fatty
Wish it wasn't cut so thinly - gets overdone and try very quickly. Not much flavor to the vegetables.
wife loved the steak...very tender. onion, pepper & cauliflower with sauce was very good tasting.
Really good meal. The meat was cooked perfectly. Very lean. Also, loved the cauliflower. Lots of flavor ad very tender.
Seemed like a very poor quality of steak.
Small portion and steak a bit chewy. cauliflower very good though
Very good staple meal.
This was delicious. Steak was perfectly done and cauliflower had a nice flavor.
The cauliflower was a little bit soggy after heated for 12 minutes as suggested. The green beans were perfect and flavorful.
Even before I put the meal in the oven the pork chops looked "sad" and overcooked. I served the dish to my husband who could barely cut the meat and we both agreed it was tasteless. Potatoes were good though
a bit too salty
Sauce was WAY too salty. Almost inedible.
My mom makes the best pork chops, and these are even better. Perfectly cooked, not dry, and they re-heated very well. The potatoes are great too.
Nice portion and good flavor. Side dish was unnecessary.
Good portion size on the pork chops.
Very Good Portion size

Nice portion size.
Love everything about this dish! The pomegranate sauce, omg!!!
The heating instructions need to be updated. For the microwave it says to eat cold whereas for the oven it says to heat at 350.

Perfect for lunch.
Steak was really good, I loved the asparagus potatoes, overall it looked and tasted like an exotic dish! I would recommend, however it was a small meal.
First meal that tasted like diet food.
I didn't know what to expect from the green potatoes but boy were they good. The falvoring was great. The steak was very tasty, but the sauce a bit salty so I didn't use much.
Would be 5 starts except the sauce was a little too salty for me. I can always add it, but can't take it away and as someone with high blood pressure, better for me to have meals cooked with less salt.
Too much salt
Need bigger side salad. Would pay for one.
Very yummy! definitely will order this food again!
Meal was warm on arrival - had not been kept chilled so we did not risk eating it.
Aimee : 07/28/2016
Meat was either uncooked or tough.
Loved the potatoes. Steak was ok
Very good flavor. Would have liked more asparagus as they were pencile thin. Also preferred side of green beans instead got substitution. Sodium content seemed a bit hi on description.
the potato mash was really good
I am not having any luck sending this so will try again. Meal was wonderful, I even went on and tried to order again after taking my first bite. Hope you have this again. Barbara
Enjoyed it very much
Very good. A little spicy for me but my husband loved them.
Corinne : 05/03/2017
Very flavorful tacos! my only feedback would be that I wish there was more than one piece of fish inside each one. It was a little pricy considering the amount of fish... The rice was DELICIOUS!
Coconut rice side dish is to die for... Fish is amazing too!
Tasted great, but the portion size was pathetic. A 2" long by 1" wide strip of fish in each tortilla. I was left as hungry as I was before I ate. Not worth what I paid.
Melissa : 03/07/2017
Fish was a bit dry. Loved the rice!
Delicious and worth it.
Was called a half hour after they were supposed to be delivered & told they were sold out. Replacement was just okay but in all over an hour and a half late. I like to support the chefs & the food is good, but of the appx 10 times I've ordered 2 meals have been very late so I'm considering the service unreliable until I experience otherwise.

Comfort food with a healthy makeover. Totally worth it!
Not as shown at all. I received a gross piece of chicken with bone in full of skin. Brown rice NOT risotto. No mushrooms or leaves. Just green beans. Most disgusting meal I've ever had on CookUnity. Inedible.
Nancy : 03/07/2017
Chicken was very chewy
Nancy : 03/07/2017
I am very picky with chicken but this tastes very chewy
The risotto was so yummy! The chicken was good, I especially loved the topping, but it didn't heat all the way through.
I didn't see truffle mentioned and the whole dish was overpowered by the aroma. I'm not a fan. At least my husband ate his.
Tasty meal. I really liked the breading on the chicken and the risotto.
Aimee : 12/19/2016
One of the better chicken dishes. Very savory.
One of my all time favorites!
