Cook, Season, and Serve
We delivered this meal fresh because it tastes best that way (heated of course!). If you need to freeze it to cook later, no worries, that works too.
Microwave: Peel back a corner of the plastic, add 1 tablespoon water, and cook in the tray 4–5 minutes (8–10 minutes if frozen), until internal temperature reaches 165°F*.
Oven: Remove plastic, add 1 tablespoon water, cover tray with foil, and bake at 425°F, 20–25 minutes (40–50 if frozen, stirring after 20 minutes), until internal temperature reaches 165°F*.
We seasoned this lightly. Add salt and pepper to your heart’s content.
*Cooking times vary by oven/microwave -- add time if needed. Do not thaw when cooking from frozen. Do not expose tray to open flame or direct contact with heating element.
