Of the four meals that I received from Plated, 2 had fresh chives. I was pretty stoked because I typically use freeze-dried chives because they’re something that I just have in the spice cabinet.
These are the chives from the Roasted Chicken au Jus. They we salvageable. I ended up losing about half of the chives, but moved on.
I know that this is a fresh item, which is shipped. Sometimes, depending on the season, fresh items get funky faster. Blah, blah, blah.
Whatever. I found a way to make it work. Everyone was happy. There were chives in the dish.
