Chicken cooking with peppers and onions in a deep frying pan on the stove


  • Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and fry the onions and peppers for a few minutes until softened
  • Scatter over the red pepper flakes, then stir in the chicken pieces and cook briefly until they turn white
  • Add the tomatoes and New Canaan Farms Cilantro Salsa. Pour in ½ to 1 tomato-can of water, stir and bring up to a gentle simmer
  • Allow to cook gently for around 12 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through, stirring in the black beans for the last couple of minutes
  • While this is cooking, rinse 1 cup of dry quinoa until the water runs clear, then add to a saucepan with 2 cups water. Bring to the boil, then cook for 12-15 minutes on a very gentle simmer. When all the water is absorbed, add in 1 tbsp of olive oil and the juice of ½ lime, plus salt and pepper to season
  • Squeeze the remaining lime juice into the chicken dish, and garnish with the fresh cilantro
  • Serve with the quinoa and Greek yogurt, which is wonderful either stirred through the dish, or on the side

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and stand by every product we ship to our customers. Please contact us for any product or shipment

We do not accept returns of product we have shipped. However, we have a limited 15-day refund policy, which means you have 15 days after receiving your item to request a refund or exchange if the product we shipped to you is defective, damaged or not what was ordered. Please note that refund requests will need to include a description of the defective product with photos.

We will notify you once we’ve received your refund request and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be refunded on your original payment method within 10 business days.

Shipping & Refunds

For orders over $60, we offer free ground shipping to a single delivery physical address in the contiguous United States (shipping to PO Boxes incurs a $5 surcharge). For all shipping, we use the best solution available for your address, and get your order out as fast as we can. We will never take longer than 3 business days to process your order and prepare it for shipment, and if you pay the premium for overnight shipment we strive (but do not guarantee) to prepare it and put it in the carrier’s hands within 24 hours. Very occasionally, we may experience delays due to supply chain constraints or other forces beyond our control. If we are not able to ship your order within five days of receipt, we will contact you to explain the timeline and offer you a refund if you prefer. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold individual orders for future ship dates.

We also provide the ability to break your order into multiple shipments and enter individual shipping addresses for those.  Please note that the free shipping offer applies to each individual address, so you would need to spend more than the minimum in each separate shipment to qualify for free shipping.

If you have any questions or concerns about your order, a shipment, or a refund, we encourage you to call or email so we can handle it personally for you!
