Home Chef, the Kroger-owned meal solutions brand available online and in stores, is launching its new Family Menu, a one-of-a-kind meal kit plan designed specifically for families. According to the company, the new family-friendly service provides a stress-free cooking routine with convenient, easy-to-make recipes and approachable flavors that everyone at the table will enjoy.

"We heard from parents who were craving even more ease at mealtime, so our Family Menu is a direct response to that home cook feedback," said Shira Schwarz, VP of brand marketing for Chicago-based Home Chef. "As a mom of three, I know how challenging it can be to deliver a quick, quality dinner that doesn't call for short-order cooking, and Home Chef's Family Menu provides meals that both kids and adults will love."

  • One-Pan Chicken Cutlets and Orzo with tomato, garlic and tzatziki

The Family Menu also offers a variety of larger-format Extras for the family, such as beverages, snacks, sides, salads and desserts.
