For the Jerk Chicken

  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbs black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper more or less to taste

For the Tacos

  • Cup Mango Salsa
  • 12 tortillas flour or corn
  • 1/2 cup queso fresco or other cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • Start by cutting slicing the chicken breasts in half (butterfly style) so that you have thin filets. 
  • Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a large bowl and add the chicken. Mix well until the chicken is fully coated in the marinade. 
  • Remove the chicken with the marinade to a resealable plastic bag and let marinate in the refrigerator overnight or for at least three hours. 
  • Preheat your grill and then add the chicken, cooking on each side for about 5-10 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of about 165 degrees. Remove from the grill and let rest for approximately 5-10 additional minutes before cutting into smaller pieces. 
  • Serve as tacos by adding the chicken to the tortillas and topping with cheese, mango salsa, and sour cream.
