DIRECTIONS

  • Combine Jerk seasoning with brown sugar, garlic, scallions, and hot sauce to make a paste. Rub on both sides of each breast and wrap or cover for at least 30 minutes, but up to two hours.
  • Bring water to a boil and cook rice for 10-12 minutes, until tender, but still firm. Drain, and rinse with cool water.
  • Transfer to a bowl and stir in pineapple, cilantro, red pepper, peas, and olive oil. Season with 1/2 tsp salt and fresh ground pepper. Cover and chill.
  • Heat grill to med-high. Cook chicken until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 4 minutes each side.
  • Squeeze half lime over chilled rice, cut chicken into strips, and serve.
  • Garnish with more fresh cilantro and lime wedges.
