Fall Jamaican Jerk Chicken Sheet Pan

Fall Jamaican Jerk Sheet Pan Dinner

Sheet Pan dinners are my newest dinner obsession! They are one of the easiest ways to make  quick meal I've found - throw everything onto a pan together and then let the oven do the work. One pan - so no mess, no trying to make 3 dishes at the same time, and its fairly brainless because you really don't have to expend that much mental energy when all you are doing is chopping thing into bite sized pieces. It's a complete meal, all on one pan, and in about 30 minutes.

This particular sheet pan is dedicated to fall - what with its sweet potatoes, bacon, chicken and apples all blending together beautifully. But it would be perfect any time of the year. I have been loving Jamaican Jerk seasoning lately, how its slightly sweet, slightly spiced, and can be as hot as you wish it. It pairs perfectly with sweet potatoes, apples and bacon here. Serve this as a stand alone meal, or with white or brown rice.

I definitely recommend taking the time to making your own Jamaican Jerk seasoning here. It is one of those things where every brand does it a little bit differently, and you never know what level of spicy you are going to get. Making your own ensures you get the perfect combination of sweet, spicy, and other spices you want. Plus it saves you money in the long run, and you know exactly what ingredients it contains. If you are looking for a good recipe, check out this spice mix and this spice mix. If you have never had Jamaican Jerk seasoning before, I think the seasoning blend sold by Tones is a good place to start - its flavorful but isn't at all spicy. If you want something more spicy, you can always add some crushed red pepper flakes or a little bit of ground chipotle pepper to the sauce mixture.
