We all love good food, but hate slaving over the stove creating a flavoursome meal. So in celebration of Caribbean Food Week I have put together a quick and easy Jerk chicken recipe that fits your macros, is high protein, can be used for meal prep and feed the family too – all in under 15 minutes.
Recently I was sent some goodies from Grace Foods which included, Jerk Chicken seasoning, curry powder, coconut milk, Salted Fish, Ackee and many more – So as I wanted to try something quick before a heavy leg session I thought I’d give the jerk seasoning a go.

What you’ll need:
500 grams Chicken breast
3 Sweet Potato
Rice or Quinoa (or both)
Chuck the sweet potato in the microwave for 7 minutes, after this you’ll turn them and put them back on for 4 minutes
Whisk the egg and dip the chicken in, then roll it in the jerk seasoning.
Cook on a high heat for about 8 minutes, or until golden and cooked through
Microwave your rice/Quinoa or if you’re boiling put them on with the chicken
Steam the carrots and broccoli
Mash the sweet potato and carrots together with a dollop of butter
Serve and enjoy.
All the additional ingredients were picked up from Tesco and can be found at any supermarket.
