Liked everything except the Tomatoes, they are just squishy and bland.

The order was delivered with no chicken. Really?

The chicken was really tasty, but the tomatoes were uninspiring.

Rubbery skin. Otherwise yummy.

It looked like it went for a roller coaster ride. Taste was excellent. Chicken breaststroke was juicy, mash potatoes on point and tomato was a nice touch. I just didn't like that it was dropped off and delivery person didn't say anything to recept

Third time I ordered this. LOVE. I did add more broccoli on the side for more greens.
3 Stars
The portion is large. The taste was a little bland. I was expecting much more flavor. This dish was okay.

One of the chicken breast in our order was inedible.

The mashed potatoes were NOT mashed! There was just a layer of mashed potatoes hiding large chunk of potato. NOT what I was looking forward to. The chicken was fine.
5 Stars
Very nice, as always. Mashed potatoes was the high light of this dish.
3 Stars
In spite of still having the skin the chicken was a bit dry. Both the chicken and potatoes were bland. I did like the roasted tomatoes. I would not order again.
5 Stars
Yum! One of my favorites!

Get rid of the tomatoes
5 Stars
5 stars from this tough critic!! Did potatoes & chicken in microwave and tomatoes in toaster oven. Chicken was moist and the pesto puts the whole thing over the top. LOVE!
5 Stars
This meal was delicious
4 Stars
Chicken cooked nicely. Potatoes were undercooked and required extra time, making it a bit dry. Tomatoes watery, no taste-unappetizing.

Really small.

Only had one delivered
4 Stars
I really liked everything but the tomatoes. I think if you heat this in the oven, the tomatoes would've been good, but the microwave made the breading soggy.
3 Stars
Flabby skin
5 Stars
The mashed potatoes was so creamy and delicious. Chicken was a little dry but with pesto was not so bad. Tomato needed to be heat up in the oven longer to achieve that crunchy roasting flavor. Overall a very nice dinner, Generous portion.
4 Stars
The arugula in the pesto makes it a little bitter for my taste.
5 Stars
The mashed potatoes are exquisite. The chicken is moist and flavorful. And the tomatoes are juicy and so yummy. This is a perfect 10!
5 Stars
Excellent dish. Chicken was very flavorful, potatoes rocked (yeah for lumpy mash!) and the tomatoes were the perfect accompaniment. Ton of food, divided it in half and will get two meals out of it. Will absolutely re-order.
5 Stars
This is by far the best and most consistent meal I've ordered on multiple occasions. The chicken is grilled nicely, the potatoes are buttery, and the pesto sauce compliments both of them well. Wish this dish was offered weekly.
3 Stars
I thought this to be very bland, but husband liked it.
3 Stars
Husband loved the pesto and slathered it all over everything.
3 Stars
This was one of the less unique of your offerings. It tasted plain.
5 Stars
This dish was delicious - even after freezing it, thawing it out in the refrigerator and microwaving it. The chicken was tender and moist and I loved the pesto sauce. The potatoes were flavorful.
5 Stars
Chicken is cooked to perfection with amazing flavor! And the mashed potatoes taste like a holiday treat!
4 Stars
Excellent
5 Stars
Very good flavors and hearty yet not too filling. Satisfies the comfort food urge without going overboard.
3 Stars
The chicken was over cooked and a bit dry and lacking that charred taste that I was expecting from the picture.
3 Stars
Cook it longer
1 Stars
May have been good, but I received the wrong dinner! I got the Chicken Thai dinner, it was boring and a small portion. Not very satisfying.
5 Stars
Delicious meal. This chicken breast was the most pleasantly moist I've ever eaten.
4 Stars
Chicken & pesto were yummy; tomatoes this time bland & oddly chewy--not ripe?
5 Stars
Very good! Chicken is cooked well and the pesto sauce is delicious! Would definitely order again!
5 Stars
Surprisingly good. I am not a fan of most chicken dishes, but this chicken was very flavorful, and the mashed potatoes and tomatoes were perfect accompaniments.
5 Stars
Have ordered 4 times. Chicken breast cooked to perfection. Good portion. The extra pesto sauce they provide, not needed. Flavorful without. Potatoes are tasty and good portions 3 out of 4 times. Tomatoes -just okay. Not great, not bad.
3 Stars
potatoes kinda dull. personally not a fan of tomatoes. pesto and chicken was great.
3 Stars
Chicken was a little dry. Needed more flavors all around, I think. Overall an average meal, but worth the convenience!
5 Stars
The chicken breast was incredibly tender and flavorful. The pesto sauce added another great layer of flavor. Mashed potatoes and tomatoes were great, too.
5 Stars

Chicken was dry even with the pesto topping. Tomatos were.not my favorite either.
4 Stars
Chicken was surprisingly good. Tomatoes, however, were inedible.
5 Stars
2nd time buying this and it's so tasty.
1 Stars
This tasted completely different from the first time I ordered it. The tomatoes were yellow and squishy and the chicken tasted like its been reheated a few times. Everything just seemed off today:(
5 Stars
Of all the meals I've had through The Munchery, this one is my absolute favorite. I think the simplicity of this entree adds to its appeal. Although I've had 4 or 5 Munchery meals that contain chicken, this is the best by far.
3 Stars
2 of the 4 chicken entrees we ordered had mashed potato issues. One had a whole potato that wasn't mashed, it was still in its whole form, the size of a small grapefruit. Another had the same issue but smaller. These were overlooked and not mashed.
4 Stars
Like the old way with pasta better.
5 Stars
This dish is so good! Chicken is moist with fresh taste. Pesto on the chicken - to die for! Mashed taters always welcome. Tomatoes are ok. Will definitely reorder often.
3 Stars
This was actually not as flavorful as anticipated, so a bit disappointing.
4 Stars
Potatoes were nice, but dish felt fairly bland overall. Perhaps garlic mashed potatoes next time?
3 Stars
More flavor!
5 Stars
This has been one of my favorite meals. The chicken is cooked to perfection and the mashed potatoes are fresh, not made from a package. I recommend this meal to anyone.
4 Stars
My chicken was a little dry.
5 Stars
Pesto was great! Chicken breast was big, I wasn't able to eat it all. Potatoes were delish too.
3 Stars
The chicken was tasty, however the potatoes had strange consistency and the broccoli rabe was very bitter. Would try again-may have been an off day.
5 Stars
Chicken was cooked perfectly, Pesto sauce was delicious! Great all around dish!
3 Stars
Tomato not ripe.
3 Stars
My chicken breast was very thick, which I disliked. It seemed to be cooked through, but it makes me nervous. And you get less flavor from the seasonings. I wish it had been cut differently or pounded flatter. Everything also needed more seasoning.
3 Stars
Needs more pesto but otherwise very good!
4 Stars
Chicken was dry. Rest of the meal was pretty good.
5 Stars

From the other items in my bag, it just appears that everything was flung around while in route. Extremely messy opening, never experienced this issue before.

Oh. My. Lanta. So good!! Those tomatoes were magical and the mashed potatoes reminded me of my grandmas at Christmas. Would eat it every day if I could.
