We introduce the Chicken Black Bean with Cabbage Slaw — a Nosh Meals signature dish! Not only is this recipe perfect for summertime, it provides loads of nutritional benefits, too. Black beans are rich in protein and low in fat; what it does contain are mostly polyunsaturated fats which are essential for the body. We also incorporate cabbage, which contains a high level of polyphenols, provides antioxidant benefits… not to mention an exceptional source of Vitamin K.
