2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the slaw

  • Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits; thinly slice the fruit.
  • Cut the fennel lengthwise into quarters and cut away the core; cut the quarters lengthwise into enough ¼-inch-thick slices to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Juice the lime.
In a large bowl, toss together the peaches, fennel, ginger, cabbage, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil; season with salt, if desired, and pepper.


Prep and cook the chicken

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Season with salt, if desired, and pepper and as much jerk seasoning as you like.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the parsley and finish the slaw.


Prep the parsley; finish the slaw

  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
To the bowl with the slaw, add half the parsley and toss to coat. Season with salt, if desired, and pepper.


Transfer the slaw to individual plates and top with the chicken. Garnish with the remaining parsley and serve.
