green beans, penne pasta

  • No-Antibiotic Poultry
The chicken breast is marinated and roasted until golden and juicy. It comes with penne pasta and simply prepared green beans. On the side is some of our house-made pesto, which we suggest pouring over the chicken (if some gets on the pasta or green beans, that could be pretty tasty, too), plus a bit of freshly grated Parmesan for sprinkling over anything your heart desires. Munchery sources poultry raised without antibiotics—it’s better for the birds and it’s better for you. We’re excited to feature poultry from Mary’s Chickens in this dish.

What People Are Saying

4 Stars
Overall decent. Chicken was well-prepared and reheated well. Pesto sauce was delicious. The amount of penne pasta was so few felt like 15~20 pieces. I liked the green beans was perfect for the simplicity of this dish. It's a simple healthy meal.

The chicken was bit dry this time around but always a great all-around dish. Keep it on the menu!

It was great, the beans needed to be cooked longer. I can't seem to do that at home either.

Dry chicken

Best avoid microwave for warming. It will dry and shrivel green beans. I recommend the oven. Would have liked a tad more of the pesto for the pasta.
3 Stars
Chicken: over cooked and dry . Beans : undercooked

One of my favorite Munchery meals! Very good.

On Sunday night i ordered chicken with penne pasta and green beans. I woke up Monday morning around 4 am with a violent case of food poisoning. Please refund. Im scared to ever use Munchery again.
4 Stars
It is not enough...
5 Stars
Perfect, perfect! Simple but perfect! I can't think of one thing that should be changed.
5 Stars
That pesto was ravishing! The chicken was moist and tender and the green beans were perfectly al dente! Compliments to the gifted chef!
4 Stars
The flavors go well together. The beans need a bit of seasoning but otherwise, a tasty meal.
2 Stars
The chicken was rather bland and dry. TIny portion of pasta with unseasoned pesto sauce didn't help wake the dish up at all. The green beans were not cooked properly. They were unseasoned, bitter, and had chewy texture.
2 Stars
Guys at Munch! Help! I order this as its a staple. I have had to cancel orders lately as food not up to your normal standards. This one has been always great! Tonight...pasta was inedible mush. Cooked possibly for 20 mins. Blue Apron is a maybe. :(
3 Stars
The green beans were under cooked. I like it aldente, and this was almost raw and still hard after the prescribed heating time
5 Stars
We both enjoyed this tasty meal. Pesto was delicious. Green beans were crispy and the pasta was done just right.
5 Stars
My two sons and I thought that the food was fabulous! What a great healthy service. Are you open on the weekends? Can we order breakfast or lunch? Thank you. Susan

It arrived too late to be eaten. As seems to be increasingly usual. Their business model clearly doesn't work.
5 Stars
a great one. it doesn't try too hard. superb chicken. Also, remember we want comfort food. If we want to take a risk, we'll go put to eat in SF.
4 Stars
Juicy and tender chicken. Love that beans weren't over cooked. Good pesto sauce.
4 Stars
Lovely dish. Nice blend of flavors. Would be perfect if the chicken was skinless. For that reason 4 versus 5 stars
4 Stars
Good basic meal. Chicken was moist. I added butter to the pasta. Beans were a little underdone for my taste, but still okay.
5 Stars
Almost as good as buttermilk fried chicken! It's the perfect serving size of protein and carbs, with nice crisp green beans. One of my favorites.
5 Stars
As with the salmon, a little tweaking & perfection! Not a complaint just a preference.
3 Stars
Green beans were dried
5 Stars
This is one of my favorite Munchery dishes. Good portion, always consistent. Pesto is excellent
3 Stars
Pesto was excellent but the chicken breast itself was bland
5 Stars
Nice dinner. Tender chicken breast, good pesto. Green beans fresh.
1 Stars
This was the worse thing I ate in my entire life. The was half raw
5 Stars
Delicious. Just don't microwave the parmesan cheese for 2 min.
4 Stars
The pesto was delicious. Only issue was that it didn't heat evenly - chicken still cold by the time the pasta and beans were hot.
4 Stars
Microwave is cool, add pesto after or dipping, ENJOY
3 Stars
A little more pasta. Taste was good but not wow. Maybe add some seasoning to the green beans?
1 Stars
The worst I've had by far. 2 minutes in the microwave rendered the chicken and pasta way over cooked and dry, no seasonings on the chicken and the green beans had nothing on them. The chicken & pasta need a sauce and the beans need maybe bearnase
3 Stars
Good moist chicken. Nice pasta and pesto. Green beans were flavorless and tough. Perhaps you should look into haricot verts, which are a win win bean.
4 Stars
Good but not enough quantity.
1 Stars
Basically oil soup, gross
4 Stars
Pesto really "made" this meal so tasty. Pasta was cooked just right and the green beans were crispy. Would like a little more pesto.

there was EASILY less than half the amount of pasta and green beans as in the picture. super disappointing. and the green beans were very dried out. chicken tasted good though.

The pesto was great and the pasta was pretty good too. The chicken was moist but a bit chewy, and the green beans were lacking taste.
3 Stars
Chicken was too tough
1 Stars
Dry :(

The meat had a very odd texture. It harshly tasted like chicken.
3 Stars
Wish chicken had more seasoning. Sauce was great
1 Stars
This is usually my go-to dish, but they must have a new chef.... the chicken was sliced for some reason, tasteless, and so dry I couldn't finish it.

We ordered 4 dinners and the chicken was extremely dry. This was not a favorite for our family.
2 Stars
Extremely dry chicken

If the chicken were any drier it would have been used for fire wood.
5 Stars
Ok. Now this is a good solid Munchery meal. Love that you left off the skin! Amazing for the calories! Delicious every bite! Thank you. (Chicken slightly over cooked even at only 1.45 mins in microwave but I don't care!) You are back Munch! <3

Not usually into Chechen breast but this was so tasty and delicious. I highly recommend it!

Chicken was dry, portion too small
5 Stars
Tasty, filling, and will definitely order again! The chicken was moist and flavorful, and the altogether meal was the perfect amount of food. Do yourself/tastebuds a favor and order the rosemary & sea salt focaccia with this! AMAZE!!!
5 Stars
Moist chicken, tasty pesto, crispy beans -- a good mix of protein, vegetables and starch. A reliable standby if the Salmon Brown Rice Bowl is not offered.
3 Stars
Chicken not flavorful
5 Stars
Excellent! Chicken and pasta were well cooked and the green beans were perfect. Pesto and grated parmesan were a very nice pairing with this dish. Thought I might need to add salt to the green beans but they were great without any added seasoning.
4 Stars
Love everything but the green beans are very raw. Just worth noting.

The chicken is surprising moist and good

Got this for my 12 year old, who tends to get really hungry after gymnastics. She loved every bit of it! Especially the green beans. She's a huge fan of pesto, and not much of a meat eater. But she loved this. Ordering it again!
4 Stars
Portion size can be better. Taste was great and really loved it.
5 Stars
Chicken tender! Loved it!
2 Stars
Pesto chicken was great but the green beans were terrible. They were hard, not fresh at all, and tasted so bad that we didn't eat them.
5 Stars
The best!!
4 Stars
Chicken and pasta were cooked perfectly! One star off for the very bland green beans.
5 Stars
Pesto sauce was amazing, chicken tender and moist
5 Stars
I sliced up the chicken and slightly warmed up everything to make a delicious one-dish dinner. The chicken was moist, flavorful, perfectly seasoned & the pesto was wonderful. This simple dish will definitely be a repeat order for me.
5 Stars
Great

Perfect! Chicken was moist and delicious. Green beans were crisp. Fantastic dish, can't wait to order it again.

Very blend. Chicken OK. Green beans slightly cook and nothing special. Not worth the $
5 Stars
Delicious!! Chicken was very tender and pesto was so good I wanted to save some for the boring chicken I make!
5 Stars
The pesto was delicious, and the chicken was moist and flavorful. Beans were a bit overcooked for my taste, but overall I loved this dish.
5 Stars
Very good! Everything warmed up evenly in the oven and tasted fresh and juicy! I'm recovering from a surgery and wanted some pre made meals on hand. It was my first delivery and meal from Munchery and I am impressed.
5 Stars
I love this dish! Chicken is always cooked properly and the pasta too. The pesto is tasty, but wish they would change up the veggies now and then. I find the string beans kind of bland and boring.
5 Stars
Delicious chicken and perfect pasta and green beans. Loved it!
5 Stars
My husband raved over the peas and chicken when I asked about the meal. I had placed it in the fridge overnight, and it was gone without a trace the next morning.
5 Stars
This dish has been consistently delicious. We order it every time we see it on the menu.
4 Stars
Flavorful but a little salty. Small portion of pasta.
1 Stars
Very dry and not appetizing at all. Usually much better.
5 Stars
Excellent! I've ordered it again.
4 Stars
Very good. My only suggestion would be to start heating the chicken before the noodles because my noodles started getting crispy before the chicken was hot.
5 Stars
Good!!
5 Stars
Husband loved it!
5 Stars
Yum!! Pesto sure brought this meal to life. Tasty. Pasta done perfectly.
5 Stars
Delish!!!

Abracadabra ...., and PESTO! Just like that you have fresh veggies tasty pasta and a thick breast. A bit dry but might be my fault.

SOO good! Will definitely order again!
4 Stars
Yummy.
2 Stars
Chicken was undercooked and pasta was still crunchy even after the noted cooking time plus a little more. Probably wouldn't buy this one again
4 Stars
Pasta was just right. Green beans was too cooked for me. Chicken was ok.
5 Stars
Loved it. Wish it were an Everyday Favorite. Didn't like the skin on the chicken because I wanted more of the coating on the actual chicken. But, skin has fat which has flavor and moisture. Put the parmasean on the beans. Overall yum.
4 Stars
Enjoyed this meal. Green beans were overly done upon arrival.
5 Stars
Great with sunflower beet salad!
4 Stars
Chicken and green beans were very good, but I would prefer brown rice, farro, or freekeh, over pasta or white rice.
4 Stars
delicious pesto sauce, fely pretty fool not 5 as its not as healty as it sounds the green beans vs pesto ratio make it a delicious but quite fatty meal
5 Stars

The chicken is always moist...how do you it? The pesto is really good but the garlic keeps me up at night - I think I just revealed how old I am.
5 Stars
Still don't know how you do it Excellent.

The chicken was moist if a little under seasoned. The pesto had good flavor. The green beans were under seasoned and dry.

I wish the pesto was tossed in the pasta and not layered on the chicken. But everything was good and tastes fresh so my complaints end there.
5 Stars
First time trying, this was delicious and easy to heat up. Nice portion without being too big or small.

The best (read: balanced, nutritious & delicious!) meal I've ever had delivered in from anywhere. Ever!

Delicious dinner. Ordered when my sister came for a visit so that an easy dinner was ready after we'd been out all day. Great portions, moist chicken, and fantastic pesto. Would easily order again.
5 Stars
Awesome combo. Just the right amount of pasta and green beans, and a generous spread of that delicious pesto sauce. This is one of my all-time favs.
3 Stars
Tasty but way too salty. I felt gross after eating it, like I had just eaten fast food.
5 Stars
I'm not even a fan of chicken and I loved this dish! The pesto dipping sauce was amazing and garlicky. The green beans were cooked to perfection. I even had leftovers.
4 Stars
The chicken was pretty moist, flavorful, and filling. The pesto sauce was really delicious on top of the pasta. The green beans had just the right amount of crispiness. I would definitely order this again!
4 Stars
This was a well-sized portion. I loved the pasta, but the chicken was a tiny bit drier than I would have liked. Pesto sauce was great and green beans were crisp. Liked this dish but looking forward to trying out other dishes!
5 Stars
Loved it!
3 Stars
The pesto makes this dish; it's superb. The chicken breast was reasonably moist and tender which can be hard to do. The sides are fine. The green beans were nice and crisp.
5 Stars
One of my all-time favorites. A perfect blend of comfort food basics, noodles, cheese, chicken, garlicky pesto, and perfectly steamed green beans. I order it every time it comes up!
5 Stars
This is one of the best Munchery meals I've had. Chicken was delicious, great portion size. Pesto was great on both the pasta and chicken.

5 Stars
Enjoyed this meal. The pesto made it particularly tasty. Loved the crunchy green beans. Will order again.
5 Stars
Very yummy, but prefer the chicken pesto pasta because the chicken is precut and already mixed with the pasta. Hey, I'm ordering Munchery for the taste and the convenience.
4 Stars
This was my first meal from Munchery. The chicken breast was well cooked with very good flavors. Everything was simply too good. I liked the pesto flavor, very fresh. They added the surprise desert to this first order as well, which was superb. Great
5 Stars
Usually not a fan of pesto, but I love this dish and find myself ordering it a lot. And I don't know how they keep the chicken breast so moist.
5 Stars
Very tasty but portion is pretty small compared to Sprig

Not enough greens but flavored were great!
5 Stars
Love the garlic pesto and chicken combo. One of my favorite dishes from Munchery.

chicken and pesto sauce was delicious, although there were only about five pieces of penne which was pretty measly.

Chicken has a lot of flavor, green beans had a crunch to them and pasta was cooked perfectly.

Chicken pesto and pasta great. Green beans tough and kind of like plastic. Except for that would have been a 5

Perfectly cooked. Excellent meal

5 Stars
This was very yummy! Perfect amount of food.
3 Stars
Not the greatest, Chicken arrived pretty dry. I liked the pesto sauce though.
3 Stars
The chicken was okay. The pasta was overcooked (but that could've been because I used the microwave), and it had no flavor outside the cheese I put on it. The green beans were also completely unseasoned.
4 Stars
Chicken and pasta were delish, the pesto sauce was superb. I was unimpressed with the green beans, they were hard, under cooked and tasteless.
5 Stars
This was my first meal and I was pleasantly surprised. I heated the chicken in the oven and the pasta/green beans in the microwave. The chicken was fantastic, I didn't even need to use the extra pesto sauce. I will be ordering this meal again.
4 Stars
The chicken was nicely cooked and seasoned. Beans were still nicely crunchy. And my picky 4 year old enjoyed the chicken and pasta
5 Stars
A great dish in every way! The chicken was super moist even after microwaving. The pesto was delicious and combined beautifully with the pasta and chicken. The green beans were crisp and flavorful. I could eat this every night! PLEASE offer again!!!
5 Stars
Delicious. Chicken cooked perfectly, not dry and not undercooked either, lots of flavor. Pasta and green beans both so perfectly cooked and such good quality you almost dont need to use the Pesto and cheese, but please do because they're amazing.
4 Stars
Large. A little dry. Sauce was ideal to help with the dryness. Pasta was small portion which is perfect.
5 Stars
Extremely moist and delicious! Our 16 year old daughter, my husband and myself have all agreed that this chicken dish, the vera cruz fish and also a lamb dish all prepared by Chef Scott Newman were cooked perfectly ~ moist and tender.
3 Stars
Its not bad but it is not really good. It is a little plain.
1 Stars
The chicken was VERY pink and seemed undercooked. Baked it in the oven for more than the recommended time and it was still very pink/slimey, and also still not very hot. Pasta and green beans were fine, but its hard to mess that up. Great pesto.
