Jerk Chicken served with Sweet Potato Mash

Postby hippy_chick » Thu Aug 07, 2008 6:39 am

This is very quick and easy to prepare after work; also very tasty! Served with some green veg.

Preheat oven to 200c fanforced. Prepare both sides of chicken with olive oil, squeeze lemon juice, freshly ground salt and pepper, jerk seasoning and crushed garlic. Wrap in tin foil and place in oven for approx 20 - 25 mins. Check the chicken at 20 mins to see if it is cooked - you don't want to overcook it, nothing worse than dry-as-a-boot chicken!

The mash was prepared using sweet potatoes, low GI and better than regular potatoes, but just as tasty and nice as mash! To make mash I used 2 sweet potatoes, one teaspoon olive oil (not needed), splash low fat milk, and freshly ground salt, pepper, sprig of rosemary and 1/2 clove garlic which I mashed in a mortar and pestol. Very yummy, especially with the peas!
Slow & Steady Wins the Race!

I'm imformed, committed & consistant. I'm loving my body & working towards a sustainable body, the healthy way.

Persistance will set you free.
