but not quite
I was planning on cooking this dish for the Caribbean throwdown
going on now, but it didn't work out.
Jamaican Jerked Chicken Breast with Black Beans and Sweet Potato Mash.
Here's the recipe
The recipe is cooked in a skillet, but my plan was to grill the chicken, make the sauce and sweet potato mash as in the recipe and then bring it all together. But... Mother nature was against me
When it came time to cook the chicken we were in the middle of a sever thunderstorm warning with high winds, heavy rain, small hail, thunder and lightening.
Yes Brothers and sisters. I wimped out. I cooked it in the skillet.
BUT... It was very good! I used jerk seasoning from St. John Spice on St. John in the USVI and seared the chicken breast in a hot skillet, added the beans, chopped tomatoes and chicken stock and let it all simmer until the chicken was done. Then I added the chopped scallions.
For the sweet potato mash I baked the sweet potatoes, scooped out the meat and mashed it with margarine, cinnamon and a little brown sugar.
