This Crispy Jerk Chicken Stack is super easy to make and you don’t need any fancy kitchen gadgets to do it! You’ll need a good baking tray to cook these on, and you can pick one up over on Amazon!

We like to use parchment paper when cooking breadcrumb-coated food. It really stops the food from sticking to the tray in the oven, which can happen whether the tray is non stick or not. It also means that you don’t pull the coating off when removing the meat from the tray. You can pick parchment paper up from any good supermarket, or over on Amazon!

This recipe also uses panko breadcrumbs – if you can’t find them in the supermarket then you can pick them up online!

This is soooo yummy! Made for my bf and I last night. I did find I had to double up the breadcrumb recipe as the first half of the breast I was using sponged them all up! Of course adjust calories accordingly if you’re going to do this, but I found the extra breadcrumbs really gave it the perfect crunch! We enjoyed ours with BBQ sauce but think a light mayo would work just as well as it can be a little spicy!

Not on any particular diet, just trying to eat a bit healthier so tried this with mini fillets. Tastes exactly like the current special at the kids favourite burger joint. Used as topper for a huge salad amazing
