Jicama, there are 104 recipes using this large, bulbous, root vegetable. The jicama has a thin brown skin and white crunchy flesh. It should be peeled before using. This recipe caught my eye and I have managed to misplace the recipe twice. It sounds very good to me and I have plans on making it within the next couple of days. Recipe in from a Pampered Chef cookbook.

For those who've never tasted jicama, you should! We really enjoy it raw (but peeled, of course!) & since we've begun trying it cooked (even if just a little), this recipe really caught my eye ~ This chicken dish is easy to make, & is satisfyingly tasty, too! Will definitely be making this one again & agian! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Gimme 5]

We really liked this! I had to use regular onion since that's all I had and I added minced garlic. We definitely liked the crunch of the jicama. Will go in the keeper file. Thanks for posting.

This was really great! I am so glad to have found a main dish using jicama. The jicama had the crunch of a water chestnut, with just a touch of sweetness, like a snap pea- delicious! I made this using only 1/2 tsp of oil, and omitting the peanuts. I also added some garlic. I served the 4 servings for two people, it was a great main dish, healthy, filling, and very flavorful. Next time I will add more broth to make it more saucy, and maybe some ginger.
