Saturday Sandwich 21: Jerk Chicken Sandwich with Pineapple Salsa

I'm not a fan of fruit and meat combined but I'm willing to give it a go. We're hoping this sandwich will bring a tropical feel to today since it's dull and cold. Hurrah English summer :D

Ingredients: a million things -.-

For the salsa: red onion, red bell pepper, pineapple, salt, pepper, lime juice and honey.

Chop everything up small, stir and set aside for later.

For the chicken marinade: chicken (duh), garlic, brown sugar, spring onions, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, lime juice, sea salt, pepper, allspice.

Mix all the ingredients (except the chicken) in a food processor to make the marinade. Pour over the chicken, cover and put in the fridge for a few hours (or overnight if you're organised like that)

 Grill or bake the chicken and then put in some bread rolls. Spoon on the salsa and you're done.

The salsa was good, weirdly pineapple and red onion go well together. The chicken was delicious, really moist (some might say too moist, in fact they did - it was JD). JD also thought the chicken would be better on rice (which we may try). It's one of the best sandwiches we've had from this book. The chicken is meant to be barbecued but it wasn't the weather for it today. maybe next time we have some sun. :)

Ratings: JD - 3/5 Emma - 3/5
