Crockpot Jamaican Jerk Chicken

on July 9, 2013

Ten years ago my husband and I did a mission trip for Mustard Seed Communities, an organization who carew for abandoned, disabled children in Jamaica.  It was a beautiful experience, and while we were there, we had the opportunity to enjoy the traditional local food.  On our “day off” from work, we took a trip to a small island and the staff made us a delicious meal of Jamaican Jerk Chicken.  We fell in love and have been trying to replicate the taste ever since!  When we returned to the states, we searched for the perfect jerk flavor and found it in Walkerswood Jamaican Jerk Seasoning

Recently my mom made this delicious crockpot Jamaican Jerk Chicken recipe for a party and it was a huge hit!  I was delighted to see that this flavorful seasoning contains zero fat, one carb and zero sugar per 2 tsp, making it a perfect choice for my Trim Healthy Mama diet!  Its so easy with only 2 ingredients and can be a perfect S, E or FP meal depending on how you serve it.  Chicken thighs have 4 grams of fat per 4 ounces, so stay under that for a fuel pull.  Enjoy a little more on a Joseph’s pita for an S meal or serve 4 ounces or less on some quinoa and a delicious E meal is ready to serve!

The super simple recipe:

Layer 3 boneless skinless chicken thighs in bottom of crockpot.

Spread one tsp Walkerswood Jamaican Jerk Seasoning (Hot & Spicy) between the three pieces (its very spicy, so stick to the 1tsp unless you want it really hot!!)

Cook on high for 4 hours.   Shred the chicken and enjoy!

We ate ours on Joseph’s Pita bread with sauteed onions and peppers.  Super delicious!
