600 Calories Or Less
All of these delicious recipes come in at 600 calories or less per serving, ideal for those who choose to monitor their caloric intake, without sacrificing flavor. The US Food & Drug Administration recommends a 2000 calorie daily intake for the general population. The 600 calorie cap equates to 30% of total 2000 calories per day based on 3 meals per day with 200 calories remaining for snack or beverage.
Carb Conscious
Our Carb Conscious recipes provide a balanced approach to carbohydrate consumption by replacing refined carbohydrates from sources like white flour, rice, and cane sugar with high-fiber foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.
Mediterranean Diet
Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.
Our Plant-Forward recipes are designed by our chefs to help support a flexible diet that emphasizes plant-based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and other legumes like lentils and soy foods, and includes occasional, moderate portions of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood.

Dive into a culinary adventure this summer with this recipe celebrating Disney and Pixar's Luca, available to stream on Disney+ starting June 18. For herbaceous flavor, we're using aromatic oregano to season our fresh tomato sauce––which perfectly complements the seared chicken served over a bed of tender orzo pasta.

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the peppers.

2 Cook the pasta & wilt the spinach

Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 7 to 9 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Immediately add the spinach; stir until combined and slightly wilted. Cover to keep warm.

3 Cook the chicken & make the sauce

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and the oregano. Stir to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the seasoned tomatoes, chopped garlic, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the tomato paste. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add 1/4 cup water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly thickened and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Stir in half the cheese (crumbling before adding). Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

4 Finish the pasta & serve your dish

To the pot of cooked pasta and spinach, add the chopped peppers, vinegar, and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished pasta topped with the cooked chicken and sauce. Garnish with the remaining cheese (crumbling before adding). Enjoy!
