Reasons you'll ♡ this Jamaican chicken sheet pan dinner
Which ingredients do we need?
- Chicken- we are using boneless skinless chicken breasts, but you could swap for boneless skinless chicken thighs and cook 5-10 more minutes
- Jamaican jerk seasoning- this easy Jamaican jerk seasoning is a staple at our house and you can stir it up in 5 minutes or less using pantry staples.
- Potatoes- make sure you cut them in quarters so they cook through in the same time as the veggies + chicken
- Veggies- we are using bell peppers and zucchini, but you could swap for your favorite veggie! I bet cauliflower would go amazingly well with the jerk chicken seasoning.
- Mango- make sure have fresh mango on hand to serve!

Jamaican chicken sheet pan FAQ
Can I make this vegetarian?
While I haven't tested, I think tofu would be really tasty in this Jamaican jerk seasoning.
Can I swap the seasoning?
Yes, you could swap for any of these 7 Dry Rubs, though they might not all work with mango.
Can this work as a freezer meal?
Unfortunately, potatoes cannot be cut ahead and frozen raw. You can chop the other components ahead and stir up the spice rub.
