Last Christmas, I got an air fryer. And the very next day, I used it straight away. Too soon for Christmas? But not too soon, I think, for the world-over to have fallen in love with air frying. I first heard of this concept while I was living in Japan, and it baffled me until I tried my friend’s karaage—zero oil, 100 percent crispy. The newfound appreciation for this appliance has warranted it as one of the hottest food trends, and Peapod has taken note. Peapod announced another collaboration with celebrated Gina Homolka of Skinnytaste, utilizing her latest book, The Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook, to create a limited-time only meal kit for her Cornflake-Crusted "Fried" Chicken with Romaine Slaw recipe. And speaking from personal experience, the fried chicken route is the best way to nab potential devotees.
"Gina's Chicken Cacciatore Meal Kit was one of Peapod's bestselling meal kits, and it was a natural choice to collaborate again," said Spencer Baird, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for Peapod. "We are excited to team up with her to create another unique meal kit offering and offer our customers the ease and convenience of ready-to-cook options."
According to a press release, Homolka's recipes are "light on calories, big on flavor." The new kit is available for Peapod users in the Chicagoland region as well as for Stop & Shop customers in New York and Jersey City and Giant Food shoppers in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington DC. Featuring pre-measured, pre-cut, and pre-washed fresh ingredients that can be added to customers' shopping carts along with other grocery essentials, the kit serves four, starting at $5 per serving.
"I'm excited to share my recipes through Peapod again. Many of my readers are busy families who enjoy the ease of grocery delivery through Peapod," said Homolka. "Air fryers are all about making great meals simpler, and a meal kit takes that vision even one step further."
In addition to trying out the meal kit, Peapod customers can enter a social media giveaway for the chance to win a Skinnytaste by Vremi air fryer and The Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook. Visit @PeapodDelivers for more details and to enter to win.
