An easy one pot chicken dinner of oven roasted Jamaican Jerk chicken cooked on top of diced plantains, sweet potatoes, and apples.
I’ve been making a lot more internationally inspired dishes lately. This is usually how I have cooked but for some reason I had gotten away from it. Now that I’ve been cooking more diverse meals my family, and I, have been a lot more excited for dinner.
This is my first post for appleweek so be on the lookout for the rest of the recipes and don’t forget to enter into the appleweek giveaway!
This one pot dinner is a piece of cake to make. Dice all the vegetables and fruits, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Season the chicken and lay that over the top of the produce mix and stick it all in the oven. Easy peasy!
I love enameled cast iron cookware like this gorgeous pan from Swiss Diamond. They are easier to care for than traditional cast iron but they cook just as well as their un-coated counterparts.
Plus, I’ll admit that I adore the rich colors you can get them in. I might have swooned just a bit over this true blue color since it’s my favorite color.
Plantains are in the same family as bananas, but they are less sweet and quite a bit starchier than bananas. They are very popular in tropical and Latin cuisines. The riper they become, which you can tell by how black their peel becomes, the sweeter they are.

Other produce combinations for Jamaican Jerk chicken:
Some other good options for this dish are butternut squash, fresh pumpkin, and mangoes. You can serve this dish by itself or serve it atop rice if you need something else to go with it.
Also, if you desire, you could season the chicken and then brown it before adding it to the pot. I chose not to but that may just because I am lazy more so than anything else.
