A delicious Latin American sauce of fresh coriander and tomatillos (green husk tomatoes) with shredded chicken. Serve over steamed white rice or with tortilla crisps.
Because the flavour of chicken is quite mild, it benefits from a tasty Jamaican jerk baste, when barbecued or grilled, and this also helps to keep the outside from burning until the chicken is cooked through – especially when cooking over charcoal.
Tortillas enclose a filling with all the flavour of traditional guacamole, but far less fat.
Jerk seasoning is a simple way to enliven grilled chicken and transforms this salad into a spicy, refreshing taste sensation. Enjoy it while the chicken is still warm.
This is a cheesy, comforting tortilla and chicken bake that takes only minutes to throw together.

I took a look around the site for a recipe like this, and not having found one, I decided to have a go creating one. My family really enjoy it. You can adjust the heat to your own preference. You could also omit the chicken for a nutritious vegetarian option. I think it's pretty versatile. It would be delicious served with tortilla chips, guacamole and a fresh green salad. Hope you like it!
This is a lovely fiery recipe for jerk marinade and makes loads so you may be able to freeze some for other jerk dishes too. Leave the marinade on for 24 hours and prick the meat cubes before you coat them so more of the lovely jerk taste penetrates the meat. The chargrilling of a barbecue combined with that bit of spice make for mouthwatering kebabs that are always the biggest hit at our barbecues.
This is a great recipe for parties. I freeze the leftovers; they reheat quite well. The zesty chicken and cooked peppers are a succulent delight when mixed with the melted cheeses. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with soured cream and salsa.
Kids love it! Mild (not spicy) yet flavourful enchiladas.
