Jerk chicken, spicy slaw and sweet potato mash 🇯🇲

I knocked this up in half hour and my gosh was it delicious!

If you can marinate your chicken over night so much more flavour will be absorbed into the chicken, but if your pushed for time at least give it a couple of hours!

The spicy flavoursome chicken goes perfectly with the crisp and tangy slaw, and some smooth sweet potato mash. It really is a match made in heaven!
