Marinate chicken breasts withÂ 2 tablespoons of your jerk sauce &Â and 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil for about an hour.Â Make sure to keep marinade, you’ll be using this again soon.
Go ahead & get your grill heated up.
In a large skillet- deep fry plantainÂ slices until golden brown, set aside.Â Â Â
Place chicken on grill & baste every 5 minutes with leftover marinade.Â Grill for 15-20 minutes, or until juices run clear & no longer pink inside.
