Review: Hen in a Hurry

In October, I was offered a sample meal box from Hen in a Hurry. It arrived towards the end of the month, and I was stoked. We’ve been making our way through the meals. 

Hen in a Hurry is an awesome new frozen family meal Delivery service. Hen in a Hurry was created in the small kitchen of the popular Greensboro, North Carolina eatery, Iron Hen Cafe. By customer request, the idea of Hen in a Hurry came to be. They love organic and locally grown, but make exceptions for some farmers and producers. Meals are precooked and flash frozen so all you have to do is heat it up. All subscriptions are no commitment – pause or cancel at whenever you want!

We Received 4 meals to try out: 

-Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo with Fire Roasted Vegetables
-Pesto Zucchini Noodles with Fire Roasted Vegetables
-Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Pepper with Loaded Cauliflower
-Fresh Garlic and Turkey Meatloaf with Grilled Green Beans

The meals arrived frozen in a large styrofoam box. They were packed with dry ice, and when they arrived, most of the dry ice had evaporated, but the food was frozen like a rock!

We had the Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Pepper with Loaded Cauliflower first. The directions give you the option to cook them in the microwave or the oven. I microwaved the peppers, which was a mistake. All of the cheese melted and turned into a puddle of fat in the bottom of the tray.  No problem! I put the peppers into a baking dish and sprinkled some Italian cheese blend on the top and put them under the broiler for 3 minutes. Dinner was saved.  The only thing that was missing was there were no onions in ours, so I had to grill some up separately and add them to the top before serving. 

And I’ve got a coupon code and deal to share with you!  You can chose which plan works best for your family. And this makes a great gift!

    It sounds like the meals came out pretty good for the most part. I appreciate this review because I am always skeptical about purchasing ready to go meals that they may melt before arrival or not taste good after reheating. So thank you

    I have never heard about this meal service but it sounds great and delicious. However these meal box services are good only if they offer good food for the given amount.

    Love learning about new companies in areas that I already love! I love HelloFresh and I may just have to try this service considering the awesome deals!

    I love the idea of a meal service, it seems like it would free up so much time for other things rather than standing cooking.

    I think this is a great service. I bet it is helpful for people who work and don’t have time to cook.

    Looks like they have a great service. Thank you for sharing the code as well! I’ll definitely recommend it to my friends that lives in the same state as you!

    Never hear about this service but I think it always good to have something on hand when you don’t have time to cook.

    I’m glad you saved the dinner. Good tip not to microwave.

    It looks like a pretty good service and the food looks good. I recommend it to my friends back in the US. You cannot ship this kind of food to here (Japan).

    hmmm sounds delicious. And it’s nice that there’s free shipping for orders $100 and above. That’s big savings. Sometimes. when you don’t have time to cook, these frozen meals are perfect.

    I have never heard of this service before but I would certainly love to try something like this. Good when you are in a hurry

    I love meal services like this. I think I’d like the Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Pepper with Loaded Cauliflower the most!


  15. Debby November 29, 2018 / 2:45 pm

    Now this looks like something I need to check out. I just was not interested in the delivery services that need me to then prepare and cook the meal. I like the meal ready! I can defrost and cook!!

    It nice that they use local and organic foods. I’m in the middle of a year-long Whole30 and appreciate methods using whole food items.
