  • 2 – 2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 8 sprigs green onion, plus more, to top
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 3 bell peppers, diced (I like to use one red, one green, and one yellow)
  • 1 habanero pepper, finely minced
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup mild jamaican jerk marinade
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, to top
  • Sliced avocado, to top


  • 3 large unripe (green) plantains

  • Coarse sea salt


  1. Combine the chicken, onions, peppers, beans, crushed tomato, garlic, jamaican jerk marinade, soy sauce, salt, brown sugar, thyme, cumin, allspice, black pepper, and cinnamon in a large slow cooker. Stir gently to ensure that the spices are distributed.
  2. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4 hours. In the mean time, make the plantain chips.
  3. Cut off the ends of the plantains and cut shallow, vertical slits in each side of the skin of each plantain. Microwave for 1 minute at 50 percent power. Pull off the peel of each plantain, and then slice into 1/8″ thick slices using a mandoline.
