Jerk Marinated Chicken:
2 (8 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon seeded (if desired) and finely chopped fresh jalapeño chile pepper (see Tip)
2 teaspoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
3 cloves garlic, minced
⅛ teaspoon salt
Nonstick cooking spray (optional)
½ cup chopped fresh pineapple
½ cup chopped green sweet pepper
1 tablespoon seeded and finely chopped fresh jalapeño chile pepper (see Tip)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon pepper
⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (8.8 ounce) pouch cooked whole grain brown rice
½ cup canned no-salt-added red kidney beans
¼ cup orange juice
¼ cup snipped fresh cilantro
Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl combine canola oil, vinegar, orange juice, onion, brown sugar, soy sauce, chile pepper, Caribbean jerk seasoning, garlic, and salt. Pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator 6 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
To prepare the Caribbean Rice: Coat a medium nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add pineapple, green sweet pepper, chile pepper (if desired), salt, garlic powder, pepper, and cinnamon. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cooked whole grain brown rice, red kidney beans, and orange juice; heat through. Stir in fresh cilantro.
Drain chicken, reserving marinade. Grill chicken, covered, over medium 15 to 18 minutes or until done (165°F), turning once. Remove from grill and let stand 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, for glaze, bring the reserved marinade to boiling in a small saucepan; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes or until reduced to ¼ cup. Slice chicken. Serve over Caribbean Rice with lime wedges and drizzle with glaze.
Tip: Chile peppers contain oils that can irritate your skin and eyes. Wear plastic or rubber gloves when working with them.
