Get Fit Lake CHelan Cooking

Get Fit Cooking Class

The First Get Fit Lake Chelan 2014 Fall Cooking Class was September 30 at the Chelan Senior Center.

There was a great turn out for the first cooking class of the Fall 2014 Get Fit Lake Chelan Challenge. Tony Rose demonstrated a quick, easy, and nutritious way to make Peach – Orange Marmalade Chicken Thighs.

Enjoy this recipe that follows. Nutrition information is included. The peach orange marmalade was home made. I will post the recipe for it in a couple of days. Any store bought preserves will work. Enjoy, and remember to check the events schedule for the next upcoming event and cooking classes for Get Fit Lake Chelan.
