Ingredients

Jerk Chicken:

  • 4-6 Chicken Breasts (about 1 1/2 to 2 lbs)
  • 2/3 cup Hot Sauce (such as Valentina Mexican hot sauce)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Lime Juice (from about 3-4 limes)
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Allspice
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons Thyme
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2-3 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Pepper
  • 1 cup Scallions, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Oil (optional)

Bowl Ingredients:

  • White Rice
  • Black Beans (can be tossed with scallions, cilantro, and lime juice)
  • Pineapple
  • Mango
  • Red, Orange, and Yellow Peppers
  • Cilantro
  • Lime Wedges

Instructions

Chicken Marinade:

  1. In a large Ziploc bag or bowl, mix all marinade ingredients together. If you so desire, you may add oil for extra juiciness. I suggest piercing the chicken with a fork to allow for the marinade to penetrate the chicken.

  2. Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. 4-8 hours is ideal. When ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium heat. Brush grill with oil to prevent sticking. Place chicken on the grill. Cook for approximately 5 - 6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the chicken. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165 degrees. Remove chicken from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.

Bowl Instructions:

  1. Cook rice according to package instructions. Make sure to salt the water when cooking the rice. For extra flavor, toss black beans with scallions, cilantro, and lime juice.

  2. To assemble bowls, layer rice, beans, peppers, pineapple, mango, cilantro, lime wedges.
