Jerk Chicken Wraps

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 2 HRS 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 6

Super spicy jerk paste, available at most supermarkets, adds tons of flavor in a short amount of time. The dressing cools everything down while adding richness to the lean chicken breasts.

  1. 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, butterflied
  2. 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning paste
  3. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  6. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  7. 1 garlic clove, minced
  8. 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  9. Six 10-inch flour tortillas
  10. 1 bunch watercress, thick stems discarded
  1. In a baking dish, rub the chicken with the jerk paste and the 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the lime juice, garlic and cilantro and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Light a grill. Grill the chicken over high heat, turning once, until well-browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Lightly brush the tortillas with oil and grill just until pliable and lightly charred, about 10 seconds per side.
  4. Cut the chicken into strips and arrange on the tortillas. Top with the watercress and drizzle with the dressing. Roll up the tortillas burrito-style and serve.
