Jamaican Jerk Chicken Salad Recipe
Yes, one more to add to my ever growing Chicken Salad Recipes section. What can I say? I love chicken salad.
I’ve come up with some interesting flavor combinations like Spinach Artichoke Chicken Salad and Mandarin Orange Chicken Salad. So it’s kinda silly that it took me so long to make Jamaican Jerk Chicken Salad Recipe.
This Jamaican Jerk Chicken Salad and a bottle of Red Stripe would be a great lunch 😆
How should you cook the chicken?
Check out this tutorial for OVEN BAKED CHICKEN BREAST, my preferred method.
You can cook the chicken however you prefer: grilled, pan fried or even use a rotisserie chicken.
Where can you get jerk seasoning that does not have sugar?
I haven’t been able to find it. This is a seasoning that you’ll need to make at home. Here is a homemade jerk seasoning recipe: http://www.thedefineddish.com/jamaican-jerk-seasoning/
How should you serve this Jerk Chicken Salad?
If limiting carbs (like me) serve this chicken salad over a bed of lettuce or arugula. Or make into chicken salad lettuce wraps.
If carbs aren’t an issue, this chicken salad is great in tortilla wraps, sandwiches or over rice.
What tools do you need for this recipe?
You’ll need a good Baking Dish and Meat Thermometer. For meal prep, I use these Glass Meal Prep Containers with Lids. Quality, sharp knives are always good to have in your kitchen. I use these Chef’s Foundry Ceramic Knives and LOVE them!
