Don’t just take our word for it, this is what Holly said about the Starter Kit…

“Not having to think too hard about what and how to prepare meals and then being blown away with amazing flavours is what I love the most about the Merrymakers Sisters recipes. Plus the interviews with health experts, not just about food but all round wellbeing has really set me on a great path physically and mentally for the rest of the year.”



Ok… back to this epic chicken and asparagus recipe!

This recipe is based on Mum’s old recipe. We loved it as kids! The best thing is that it’s just as easy as the original not-so-healthy version. 

We’ve added a Merrymaker tip to add cheese. If you do eat cheese we think you should 100% definitely add it. It makes it even more delish! 

If you make it share a pic on social media! We love seeing your Merrymaker creations! Use #GetMerry

Always merrymaking,
