My mother came to visit a few weeks ago and I had planned on taking her out to eat but her flight was delayed. So while I waited on her to let me know a definite time that she would be arriving I was like “well I guess I’ll cook something quick and tasty”. It needed to be quick because I didn’t have time to be in the kitchen for a long time but it also needed to be delicious because it was for my most favorite person in the world. And that my friends is how the bbq Jerk Chicken Sauté recipe was born. I literally used what I had on hand and it came out so good! This can be made for a weeknight meal or as a meal prep. I served it with mashed potatoes but you can also serve it with my yellow rice or rice and peas recipe. As always , if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me!
