Jerk Chicken Pasta

A few folks were requesting the recipe. It's certainly not a WW friendly recipe, but it is SO worth the calories.

  • 1-1.5 lbs boneless chicken breasts
  • 16 oz heavy whipping cream
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 T. (McCormick**) Jerk seasoning
  • 1 box bow tie pasta

Marinade and cook chicken according to your preferred marinade/cooking method (we usually use the Kroger brand Caribbean Jerk marinade and grill the chicken - in the winter, we just broil it). Cut (cooked) chicken into bite-sized pieces. Cook pasta and drain. Combine (cooked) chicken, whipping cream, butter, garlic powder, jerk seasoning, and (cooked/drained) pasta in a large pot. Simmer until the sauce thickens.

** We always use the McCormick brand Jerk spices/seasoning for this meal, but Spice Islands is also good (although a bit more expensive).

Enjoy! This dish is so easy and one of our absolute favorites! :)

    Just to clarify- do you use sixteen ounces of whipping cream OR One 6 oz container of whipping cream?

     

    Thanks!

  • That sounds amazing. I miss Bahama Breeze. They had something similar on their menu.

    I really wish I could make this.  It sounds delicious. 

    Any ideas on how I can get around the jerk seasoning.  Specifically, the part in it with the peppers (not black ground pepper but pepper from the plant)?  Food allergies are the pits. 

  • Keeping this for later!
