Jerk seasoning is traditionally used in Jamaican cooking, and is a flavorful blend of citrus and spice. If you're concerned about the 'heat factor', no worries - the sweetness of the citrus and the creaminess of the avocado balance the spiciness nicely.


2 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp Onion flakes
1 tbsp Onion powder
2 tsp Ground thyme
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Allspice
1/4 tsp Ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Coarsely ground black pepper
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 Fresh lime juice
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 Avocados; sliced, (up to 2)
1 Mango; peeled, pitted and sliced
4 cups colorful mixed greens
(Suggested: Lime vinaigrette dressing)

Original recipe makes 2



1. To prepare Jerk seasoning, combine the onion flakes, onion powder, thyme, salt, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar, black pepper and cayenne pepper.

2. Combine the lime juice and olive oil and coat both chicken breasts, then sprinkle both sides of the chicken with Jerk seasoning.

3. Lightly coat pan with olive oil or non-stick cooking spray. Cook chicken over medium-high heat, turning once, for 10 to 12 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 165 degrees F. Remove from the pan to cutting board and cut the chicken into 1/4" thick diagonal slices.

4. Divide the greens between two plates and lightly dress with a lime vinaigrette. Add the mango and avocado to the salad and top each with equal portions of the chicken.
