Authentic jerk chicken can be too involved for an easy weeknight meal. You can make jerk chicken on a sheet pan with only a few simple ingredients and have just one or two pans to wash!
Jerk Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner ingredients:
4 Chicken thighs
2 Tablespoons Jerk Seasoning
Juice of 1 lime
4 ripe plantains
2 teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
Jerk Chicken directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F
Mix chicken thighs, jerk seasoning and lime juice thoroughly in a large bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes to marinate while you prepare the plantains.
Peel and slice the plantains into 1/4 inch thick slices. In a medium sized bowl, toss the plantains with the salt and the oil.
Place the chicken on a non-stick baking sheet and place the plantains on the same sheet pan. Some overlap on the plantains is ok.
Place the sheet pan in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken thighs internal temperature reaches 165 F.
Serve the chicken and plantains with your favorite vegetable side dish.
