Chef Jernard Wells and vegan Chef Porsche Thomas offer viewers healthy alternatives to Southern inspired dishes on NEW SOUL KITCHEN airing on Sunday, April 7 at 12:30 p.m. ET.


On this week’s episode, actress Javicia Leslie and former Washington Redskins defensive back turned entrepreneur Chase Minnifield stop by Chef JJ’s kitchen to cook up late night snacks. On the menu: Sticky Wings with Crunchy Fried String Beans and JJ’s Classic Wedge Salad with Shrimp.

JJ gets the party started with a jalapeno tequila, watermelon juice, mint and lemon cocktail. Rising Hollywood starlet Javicia Leslie talks about splitting her time between Los Angeles and New York, where she’s currently taping two television series “MacGyver” and “The Family Business.” Javicia plays a bartender on “MacGyver” and puts her mixologist skills to the test by creating Old Fashioned cocktails. Chase Minnifield made the 2019 Forbes’ 30 under 30 Sports List for founding the EZ Turn app, which allows property managers and universities to manage student housing turnover.

The conversation heats up when Javicia compares her dating life to cayenne pepper and brown sugar- sweet and spicy. Catch the next episode to hear the trio talk about dating, being your own boss and slaying in the kitchen.

Chef Jernard kicks things off with his Boneless Skinless Primavera Stuffed Chicken cooked to perfection and topped with Tomato Basil Sauce. Porsche flaunts her skills with a Vegan Watermelon Sesame Hokey Pokey Bowl, and the rich soy sauce flavor will make viewers think they’re really eating sushi. In the following episode, Chef Jernard cooks up Onion Fried Catfish served with Hot Water Cornbread.
