Jerk chicken, a traditional dish of the Caribbean, almost always contains hot peppers, thyme, and allspice. Our version is milder, but full of flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 10 ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth. Combine green onion mixture and chicken in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Step 2

Place potato in a saucepan, and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until tender; drain. Cool.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and marinade; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; chop. Add chicken, potato, milk, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to pan; cook for 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Garnish with parsley, if desired.

I feel bad giving this a 1 because it was ok, but I wouldn't make it again. It was definitely not worth planning 24 hours in advance for! My potatoes turned to mush when I drained them and the final result was much more liquidy than I expected it to be, we actually ate this with a spoon. Maybe I did something wrong?? Either way the dish was not good enough for me to make this again.

I enjoyed this meal. I don't often make one dish meals and it was quite a treat. I love the flavors and my semi-picky boyfriend was pleasantly surprised as well. Will definitely make again.

My husband and I loved this! Used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and suggestion of sweet pototoes. Home run, will make again soon!
