5 Drool Worthy Meal Kits That Let You Cook Like Matty
Steak Sandwich with Kale Salad
Feeling bold? Make this Steak Sandwich for breakfast. That’s what Matty Matheson does. The spicy, yet refreshing kale chimichurri sits atop a healthy portion of flap meat that is sandwiched between two pieces of toasted, garlicky bread that give the perfect crunch. A light and bright heirloom tomato salad with a lemon-parmesan vinaigrette round out this flavor-packed dish.

All Day Breakfast Hash
Ignite your senses for the day with this flavorful breakfast hash. This dish was inspired from the many morning-afters where anything would satisfy Matty’s hunger. Throw everything in a pan, crack some eggs into it, and, voila—breakfast is served.
For even more flavor, toss everything in your trusted cast iron pan and pop it in the oven for a few minutes to give all of the ingredients a crispy, crunchy shell.

Spicy Pan Fried Half Chicken with Coleslaw and Corn
Want fried chicken but don’t have any flour on-hand? Matty Matheson’s recipe will save the day. Rather that coating each piece of chicken in flour and egg, simply season, fry, and douse in spices immediately after cooking. This creates less mess, less cleanup, and plenty of tender and juicy chicken.
Why add the spices after cooking the chicken? The hot oil will burn off the spices while cooking. Get the chicken perfect first, then coat in your spice mixture to let the hot oil suck in all the flavor.
Chef Matty Matheson grew up eating trout. This recipe pays homage to his upbringing by showcasing the nutty, toasted flavors of this fish. You’ll create a one-of-a-kind butter sauce using lemon juice and almonds that heighten the flavor of the fish without weighing it down.

Let’s not forget about dessert. Chocolate mousse is a go-to dish for chef Matty—and easy for the home cook to make. Simply melt chocolate and fold it into whipped cream to create a tried and true mousse that will hit the spot after just about any meal.
