Cooking Together - Zoom Class

Jerk Chicken with Spicy Mango Slaw and Coconut Rice & Beans   –  Wednesday, April 21st 6:30 p.m.

Impress your friends and family with this tasty tropical meal you can put together in an hour! During our rainy spring, these recipes will take you on a little mini-vacation to a sunny beach somewhere. This class features super-flavorful and healthy jerk-spiced broiled boneless chicken thighs served on a bed of simple slaw, topped with delicious mango salsa that you can adjust to your own spice level. On the side, you’ll enjoy decadent coconut red beans and rice that perfectly balances the meal. This class is 100% gluten-free as long as you use GF soy sauce and chicken broth.
