how to make jerk chicken sheet pan meal

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.
