Jerk Chicken Directions

  1. Using a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for chicken; whisk together until fully combined.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a large glass baking dish. Add marinade to the baking dish, turning to fully coat chicken. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, or overnight.

Sandwich Directions

  1. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat until hot. Remove chicken breasts from marinade and place in grill pan. Discard any remaining marinade.
  2. Cook chicken until done (~12-15 minutes), flipping after 8 minutes.
  3. Once chicken is fully cooked, transfer to a cutting board. Let chicken cool slightly and then slice into ¾ inch strips.
  4. Return grill pan to stovetop over medium-high heat. Brush the insides of the ciabatta rolls with olive oil and place face down in hot grill pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until slightly crispy.
  5. Top each sandwich with several strips of Jerk chicken, red onion, avocado, cut in half.

Cooking Tip: Prep time includes 10 minutes (active) + 8 hours (inactive).

Tip: Note: Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
