So, I made the amazing Gobble Box‘s version of Chicken Korma. This looked so good in the picture, and they said it would take 15 minutes to make. I’m pretty cynical, so I assumed it was an exaggeration.
The key with Gobble Box, I’m realizing, is that they really do the work for you. My chicken came pre-cubed, the beans had no stringy ends and just needed to be cut down a bit. The rice only needed 2 minutes total in the microwave, and the sauce was pre-made. This meal, I tell you, was magic.
The only modification I made was to the naan bread, which I brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with garlic powder before putting it in a hot oven to toast. The chicken and beans cooked easily and simmered gently in the sauce while I got everything ready. Even the cashews and cilantro on top took only seconds to put together.
The flavor was, well, chicken korma – deliciously smooth and sweet, pairing perfectly with the coconut rice and the crunch of a cashew. I used only half of the curry powder packet, worrying I was adding too much heat, but I could have easily used the whole thing to coat the outside of the chicken pieces. We had one serving left only because we showed restraint, but Husband and I each ate heaping portions so this meal makes plenty: it claims 1100 calories per serving, and I believe them.
If you are looking for a meal that shows you every ingredient so that you can make it again with grocery store ingredients, this may not be the box for you; I don’t know how the coconut rice was prepared before so I couldn’t replicate it, and the sauce is a mystery. However, if you want REALLY tasty, really fast food, Gobble Box is evidently your answer.
If you want to try a box and decide for yourself, this link will send you a free box; it is different enough from other subscription boxes that I’d say I recommend it!
