  • Author: Jessica Parker

Description

People probably get sick of me saying “this is delicious” or something similar about these recipes I share. Well…it’s because I don’t share recipes that aren’t delicious! This one, definitely my new favorite. If you like dynamic flavor…spice {but not spicy hot}…and lime…you’ll LOVE this!


Ingredients

Chicken

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp Jamaican jerk seasoning

  • 1 lime
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ tsp garlic powder

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Add jerk seasoning & sauté for a minute to release the flavors.
