Jerk Chicken and Plantain Nacho Bowl
What a way to spice it up?! This INCREDIBLE Jerk chicken bowl is just what we need to start our week off on a spicy note. If you can’t tell already, we really love plantains. Plantains are a trusted and most loved side in many Jamaican and Caribbean recipes, so we thought it was a perfect pairing with the jerked chicken-pairing spicy and sweet is always a good idea.
We used an Instant Pot to make the jerked chicken because it cooks faster and it shreds nicely for this recipe. If you have the time, season your chicken with our Healthy On You® No Woman No Spice Jamaican Jerk Spice and let it sit overnight or a few hours before you begin. It makes all the spice flavors sink in for an even bigger flavor boost.
If you don’t have an instant pot, use a large heavy dutch oven and simply follow all the directions in the sauté mode and then add all the ingredients back to the pot, cover, reduce the heat to low and cook for 1½ hours.
