Jerk Flavoured Chicken Recipe slimming world friendly fakeaway

For those who like a bit of spice in their life, this Jamaican Jerk Flavoured Chicken Bake is for you! It's spicy, with succulent chicken breasts and loads of flavour. This is a delicious Fakeaway version

Jerk is a Jamaican style of cooking where meat is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. This is my personal take on this flavour combination, so don't yell at me if it's not 100% authentic (remember when Jamie Oliver got in trouble for this?)

I used chicken breasts for this dish, but it could work equally well with chicken thighs or wings. 

If you have never tried rice and peas before, you need to get this in your life! The peas are actually kidney beans, and it has a rich coconutty flavour. It's a more sticky rice, I really love it!

I wanted something extra to go on the side of this dish, so put together this kind of Caribbean smokey 'slaw with some veg that I had in the fridge.
