These tasty sweet potato and jerk chicken “pockets” are spiced up with jerk seasoning, a Caribbean spice blend that typically contains allspice, thyme and hot pepper. The spice combo and heat level vary widely among brands. Experiment and find the one you prefer. Look for jerk seasoning in the spice section of most supermarkets.

Tasty dinner for 2 and leftovers for lunch

I used Pillsbury Artisan Pizza dough, replaced the raisins with diced pineapple and substituted fat-free sour cream for the mayo. Husband approved, saying was a more interesting form of chicken pot pie. I made my own jerk powder as store-bought is often salty. We like heat, so also added cayenne.

Healthy, easy and fun.
