Sweet & Spicy Chicken Legs first arrived on our 2020 Rosh Hashanah Menu. Traditional Jewish Cuisine was not our strength, but we wanted to provide our members with a traditional, festive meal for the holiday.

The sweet & spicy duo is created by using fresh citrus fruits, local honey and spicy red pepper flakes. We also have a vegetarian version of this dish made with tofu.

The finished product was a huge success, so we're sharing the full recipe with you below!

Eat Well.
