It’s been almost 3 months since our trip to Jamaica and I’m still dreaming of the Jerk Chicken we ate every afternoon by the pool at Couples Resorts!

After arriving home from the trip, I had about 1,564 ideas for recipes to make with Jerk Seasoning, but I decided to start with Jamaican Jerk Beef Patties and gradually work my way through the other 1,563! 😉

Well today folks, it’s time for a new Jerk seasoning recipe, Jerk Chicken Fajitas!

Kurt’s favorite food group is anything wrapped in a tortilla. (Haha! But seriously, it’s so true!) Fajitas are definitely coming in at the top of that food group, so I decided to make him Jerk Chicken Fajitas for dinner after our trip.

They turned out so scrumptious, I knew I had to make them again for the blog!

I personally loved the honey lime dressing drizzled on top. I served that dressing with the Jamaican Jerk Chicken & Pork Meatballs I made last summer. Yum!

Kurt preferred the fajitas with his go-to fajita topper, sour cream. You could also add avocado or green chili salsa.

Really the topping choice is up to you, it’s part of the fun of fajitas! You really can’t go wrong with any choice, except maybe chocolate sauce, that would be weird! 😉
