If you may have told me two years ago that I'd were busting out one pan recipes, I would have called you a liar. Not that I used to be against them or anything else, it simply wasn’t my style. But like maximum issues in lifestyles, instances trade and so do preferences. So I whipped up a couple of one pan meals and became ridiculously obsessed.

Look, here’s the plan: Marinate if you happen to’d like, throw the chicken and veggies in a skillet, toss a couple of dishes into the dishwasher and dance to Mariah whilst you wait. Next thing you know, individuals are calling you Wolfgang Puck. Or you’re beating Bobby Flay on one of his 10,000 Food Network shows. Honestly, what number of presentations does he have?

Forget Bobby, let’s get back to the industry of one pan foods: I really like meals that may be made in one pan or pot because they’re at all times simple, at all times scrumptious and full of FLAVOR. This one isn't any different. SO GOOD and the perfect recipe to develop into your weeknight dinners into something inventive.

The Caribbean chicken marinade is dressed with garlic, soy sauce, ginger, vinegar, lime juice, honey and tons of spices. You can marinate it before you move to work, or simply get dressed it up proper sooner than you are making the recipe.

I opted so as to add in crunchy bell pepper and inexperienced onion for some veggies, and also sweet pineapple for a singular take at the rice, which in order that happens to be cooked in mild coconut milk.

Incredible One Pan Caribbean Jerk Chicken with a novel, flavorful pineapple-coconut rice. This simple, one pan meal has a selfmade jerk seasoning and is very best for meal prep!

  • For the chicken marinade:
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1.25-1.Five kilos)
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons gluten loose soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon floor allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon flooring cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly floor black pepper
  • For the veggies & rice:
  • ½ tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1 bunch green onions, diced
  • 1 large pink bell pepper, lower into chunks
  • 1 (15 ounce) can lite coconut milk
  • 1 cup contemporary or frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup basmati white rice (don’t use brown, it'll take too long to cook dinner)**
  • To garnish:
  • Green onions
  • Fresh lime
  1. Add chicken to a large bowl. Add in 1 tablespoon olive oil and your jerk seasoning: garlic, ginger, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, honey, allspice, cinnamon, dried thyme, cayenne, sea salt and black pepper. Use blank fingers to toss the chicken in the aggregate. 

  2. Cover and allow chicken to marinate for no less than half-hour or up to 6 hours, or you'll be able to skip this completely and start the cooking process.

  3. Next upload 1/2 tablespoon olive oil to a large deep 10 inch skillet and place over medium prime warmth. (If you wouldn't have a skillet a big pot may even work rather well!) Once oil is scorching, upload in chicken and season with a little more salt and pepper. Cook until browned 4-Five mins, then flip and and cook dinner an extra 4-Five minutes. Remove from pan and switch to a plate.

  4. In the similar skillet (it must be greased enough already for sauteing), add green onion, red bell pepper chunks; saute for 1-2 mins. Then add in coconut milk and rice and stir neatly to combine. Bring to a simmer then fold within the pineapple, making sure it is lightly allotted. Add browned chicken on best. 

  5. Reduce heat to low, duvet the skillet straight away and cook dinner for 20-25 minutes. After 20-25 mins, lots of the liquid should be absorbed and rice will have to be cooked. Serve immediately. Garnish with green onions and serve with a squeeze of unpolluted lime juice.

  6. To meal prep: This meal serves four. Place rice in a meal prep packing containers and top with 1 chicken thigh. Garnish with inexperienced onion.

Do not use brown rice. It takes a lot longer to cook dinner and I would NOT recommend. Cauliflower rice works neatly on this recipe. If you might be on the lookout for an alternative, I would counsel subbing about 2/3 cup quinoa. The cooking time and liquid ratio will keep the same.
