Garden Market Chicken By Knorr®
One great thing about this nutritious, delicious chicken dish is how easily you can make a balanced meal for your whole family -- but there are more reasons to love it.

Knorr® chefs take pride in not just using high-quality ingredients, but in sustainable sourcing. The Knorr® Landmark Farm program was designed to make sure suppliers are leading examples of sustainability in the farming industry and practice saving water and energy, minimizing the fertilizer used, and optimize their renewable resources.
In 2016 Knorr® added three more U.S. Landmark Farms, one of which is the Isbell family’s rice farm in Arkansas, where farmer Mark Isbell improves on the work his father started by adopting new, highly-efficient irrigation techniques.
With all of these benefits packed into one nutritious, simple-to-make meal, it’s easy to see why this is a meal that your family will love.
