21 Day Fix Approved- Jamaican Jerk Chicken Recipe


I Love Jerk Chicken


I really get bored with boring chicken breast.  I love to make this meal ahead of time for meal prep and then just portion it out into containers for the rest of the week.  I will also sometimes make it with boneless chicken thighs. It is super flavorful and break from the boring chicken, rice and broccoli I usually eat :)  I hope you enjoy!
