Our Healthy Cooking with Nicole series continues with an easy chicken recipe and a healthful, crunchy salad that makes a great go-with!

Nicole Rainieri is a board certified holistic health counselor who teaches healthy cooking classes at Chapel Haven Schleifer Center. Our students love her recipes and enjoy learning how to cook easy but healthy and tasty meals!

California Avocado Chicken and Summer Crunch Salad

Jamie made this delicious dinner with Nicole!

Here is an easy recipe you can make without turning on the oven! Take advantage of summer produce including avocado, fresh tomatoes and basil. Marinate your chicken in an easy balsamic and then heat up the skillet! Here is the recipe: California Avocado Chicken

A great accompaniment is this crunchy salad, again full of the bounty of summer produce. Check out the recipe here: Summer Crunch Salad

Cabbage, carrots, cauliflower – paired together these two dishes make for a healthy summer feast!

Nicole’s healthy cooking class is a popular way for students to follow a healthy diet and learn how to make quick and easy meals on their own.

Nicole’s recipes are easy and don’t require elaborate prep.

Zucchini pasta

How about pasta, but with a vegetable-based noodle? For example, zucchini pasta with bolognese sauce.

“It was a fun and delicious class, everyone got to make their own spiralized zucchini with an electronic spiralizer I brought in,” Nicole said.

“Using zucchini instead of noodles makes this dish a lot lower in calories, and more nutritious!”
