Home Chef, a meal solutions company with both a retail and online presence, has announced a new, limited-edition product line with U.S. gymnast and entrepreneur, Shawn Johnson East. Starting Sept. 20, customers can try Johnson East's hand-picked favorite Home Chef recipes, including 12 oven-ready kits available through the online delivery service and two in-store oven kits at Kroger banner stores nationwide.
The partnership marks the first time for a celebrity athlete to appear on Home Chef's online menu and in-store products, and customers can spot her favorite meals by the purple "Selected by Shawn" badge on the online menu and in-store packaging.
"After enjoying Home Chef meals with my family for several years, I'm thrilled to launch my selection of favorite Home Chef recipes," says Johnson East. "Now a family of four, life is busier than ever for Andrew and me, so it's immensely helpful to have a variety of simple, delicious oven-ready meals on hand to cut down our time in the kitchen."
Selected with convenience in mind, Shawn's recipe picks come with pre-portioned ingredients in an oven-safe tray. Shawn's favorite oven-ready meals include recipes such as Margherita Chicken with Garlic Parmesan Zucchini, Shrimp Tostadas with Guacamole and Salsa Verde and Philly Cheesesteak Tacos with Mozzarella Cheese Sauce and Sweet Peppers.
"At Home Chef, we know busy families, and particularly parents like Shawn and Andrew, are looking for time-saving meal options that offer fresh ingredients and well-balanced recipes," says Shira Schwarz, senior director, marketing, Home Chef. "That's why we're excited to bring customers Shawn's favorite oven-ready recipes, a selection of meals chosen by a busy family for busy families who want uncompromisingly fresh, real meals that don't cause you to sacrifice quality, flavor or convenience."
Two of Shawn's favorite oven-ready meals will be featured on Home Chef's rotating online menu beginning on Sept. 17 after noon CST and will continue throughout October. Two in-store Oven-Kits will be available at Kroger stores nationwide for the duration of the partnership.
