Jerk Chicken Fajita

This is a blend of two cultures. Coming from Jamaica and from Mexico , In Jamaica where the Jerk spice mix comes from is one of the most delicious blend I think that is out there. It combines the sweet allspice (pimenta)and others with a more French style herbs I would say like thyme and the good basic seasonings of garlic, and chilies.

The key is in the marinade for the flavor


Lime juice
Pineapple juice
Chili powder
smoked paprika
Jerk seasoning

1 lb Chicken Breast
1 Onion, 1 inch dice
2 Bell Peppers, colored, 1 inch dice
8 Tortillas

2 Avocados
1 clove Garlic
1 slice Onion
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Lime juice
1 heaping tablespoon yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped Cilantro (optional)
1 teaspoon Jalapeno

Combine the ingredients of the marinade in a stainless bowl.

Cut the chicken breast into smaller pieces to get more surface area exposure to the marinade, then place it in the marinade. Let sit for 30 min to 6 hours.

Remove chicken from the marinade and dry off.
BBQ the chicken and the vegetables in a vegetable basket.

Slice the Chicken and warm the tortillas.

Add a little guacamole(recipe follows) and we had a bit of chipotle dressing that we used as well.

Add the garlic, onion in a molcajete

Add the salt and grind with the pestal till it is well minced.

Add the lime juice, yogurt, jalapeno and cilantro. I start with half a lime then add more if I think it needs it after it is blended. Add more salt if needed.
