Jamaican jerk chicken with a mango chilli salsa

Spice things up with this Jamaican jerk chicken and Mango Chilli salsa served with spicy potato wedges. To help you enjoy this great British summer with friends and family, McCain Foods have got some delicious recipes using McCain Wedges, which all the family will enjoy.

  • Preparation: 20 mins
  • Cooking: 50 mins
  • Serves: 5

What you need:

  • 300g McCain Lightly Spiced Wedges
  • 4 chicken breasts

For the jerk sauce:

  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered
  • 2 red chillies halved and seeded (or 1-2 scotch bonnet chillies if you like things hot)
  • 2 tbsp root ginger, peeled and chopped roughly
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 100ml white wine vinegar
  • 100ml dark soy sauce

For the salsa:

  • 1 large, ripe but firm mango, peeled, stoned and diced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 tbsp lime juice

What you do:

  1. Place all the ingredients for the jerk sauce in a food processor or liquidizer and whiz until smooth. If you do not have a food processor, just chop the onion, red chilli and root ginger as finely as you possibly can and mix with the spices, vinegar and soy sauce. Keep a tablespoon of the sauce to the side for the spiced wedges
  2. Place the chicken in a large, shallow dish. Slash each piece 3-4 times and pour over the jerk sauce. Cover and leave in the fridge for 1-2 hours or if time allows, overnight to marinate
  3. Mix together the salsa ingredients and chill until ready to serve
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan oven 180°C/Gas mark 6
  5. Place the chicken in a roasting tin and place in the re-heated oven. Remove the chicken after 30 minutes and baste with the marinade. Return to the oven for a further 15 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked
  6. Place the wedges into a large bowl and add a tablespoon of the reserved jerk sauce. Toss gently in the bowl, place the wedges onto a baking sheet and cook as per pack instructions
  7. When the chicken is ready, serve alongside the spicy wedges and a spoonful of salsa
