Nothing screams Spring like these sweet and spicy Caribbean Jerk Chicken Sandwiches. I'm so excited that grilling season is upon us and even though it was a tad chilly today at least it wasn't raining! These tasty sandwiches can be prepared any way you would like but I prefer to grill mine. If you like sweet and spicy then you will have to give these a try!
Caribbean Jerk Chicken Sandwiches
Makes 4 Sandwiches
Cal 311, Carbs 32.7, Fat 5.5, Protein 1, Fiber 26.2
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup Carribean Jerk Marinade, divided (I used Lawry's)
2 cups citrus coleslaw (my recipe is below)
Rolls or hamburger buns
In a large ziploc bag, pour 1/2 cup marinade over chicken. Seal and place in fridge for at least one hour.
Remove chicken and discard marinade. Grill over medium high heat for 6-7 minutes per side or until juices run clear. About 5 minutes before removing from grill, baste with remaining marinade.
Assemble sandwiches by place one chicken breast in a bun and top with 1/4 cup citrus slaw. Enjoy!
Citrus Slaw Recipe
1 bag shredded cabbage
1/2 cup light mayo
3 tbsp. orange juice
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. white vinegar
1 tbsp. sugar
Whisk mayo, vinegar, sugar, and juices together. Gently fold in cabbage. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour. (I find the longer the better)
