The Virtues of the Sweet-Tasting Jicama Root Vegetable

Lemon Pepper Chicken with Jicama Slaw

There are a variety of ways that the home chef can spice up their recipes or put an easy twist on classic recipes, like I do with this Lemon Pepper Chicken with Jicama Slaw dish.

The jicama, also known as a Mexican Yam or Mexican Turnip, is definitely an underutilized vegetable ingredient, and one you won’t find on many menus across America. That’s too bad, because its sweet, earthy taste goes well with “zesty” citrus flavors like lime, lemon, and oranges, and provides a much-needed crispness as a slaw when paired with chicken.
