This Oven Baked Jamaican Jerk Chicken Salad recipe is a really great combination of spicy flavor and fresh veggies. Inspired by the traditional Jamaican favorite–Jerk Chicken, this recipe creates a nice twist to your traditional salad. Easy to make and a sure crowd pleaser on any given summer day.
To start, add the jerk chicken marinade to your chicken breasts in a ziplock bag and allow chicken to fully marinate for at least an hour in the refrigerator; best if marinated overnight.
To cook chicken, pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove chicken from marinade and add to a medium non-stick skillet, pouring marinade juices atop chicken.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked through and golden brown.
Remove chicken from oven and let it rest for 2 minutes before slicing into strips.
Arrange the veggies unto a platter and top with sliced chicken. Serve with your favorite dressing or our Avocado Basil Mango Dressing (See Notes).
