Jerk Chicken Burritos

recipe
A traditional jerk seasoning is a dry rub that's often used in grilling. It consists of several spices, such as allspice, cloves, chiles, and thyme. This jerk-style chicken is seasoned with a bottled marinade, omitting the hassle of preparing your own jerk-seasoning blend.

4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray

1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup bottled chunky salsa
