Our mains are fully cooked and vacuum sealed daily to maintain freshness in your refrigerator. Microwave on high for 4:00 in two 2-minute increments, turning the package over after the first beep. Cut open carefully with scissors and serve. You can also bring 2 quarts of water to a boil and drop the bag in unopened, then turn off the heat and cover. Wait 15 minutes minimum, then carefully remove bag with tongs. Open and serve.
