Meet Zach Jarrett.

We’re especially excited to introduce today’s Freshly’s New Meal of the Week. Why, you ask? This grilled chicken dish, served with spaghetti squash cakes and swish chard, was inspired by L.A.-based chef Zach Jarrett, our first partner chef in the newly launched Freshly Tastemakers program.

Zach kickstarted his career at L.A.’s meat & charcuterie house, Salt’s Cure, before moving onto SQUIRL, and now Alimento. Zach is a modern meat man with a taste for whole foods and single ingredients, which is why you’ll be able to taste all of the full-bodied, natural flavors of sweet squash, tender chicken, and sautéed chards. We’d also like to add that this dish contains a solid 46 grams of protein – that’s more than 80 percent of the daily recommended recommended amount of protein for men and women. Hello, energy. You can try out Zach’s meal here, or check out some of our other Freshly offerings.

Inspired by chef Zach Jarrett, an herb-coated chicken is grilled to tender perfection and served with a side of roasted spaghetti-squash cakes and sautéed swiss chard. You’ll love the contrast between the earthy herbs, parmesan cheese, and squash sweetness.
