Chicken: marinade for 1 hour in the refrigerator and grill on the BBQ for 10 minutes on each side. Add extra Jerk Sauce to the top if you want more flavor and spice.
Plantains: Cut the ends off of each plantain and boil for 10 minutes. Brown some butter in a small fry pan and add sliced plantains. Allow to crisp and brown for about 10 minutes (or until they reach a color you like)
Bean Salad: Cube and stab your sweet potatoes and boil until tender, about 15 minutes. While they are boiling, put green beans and tomatoes in a large fry pan on medium with olive oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, red chili flakes and diced jalapenos. add your potatoes and cook until they brown a bit.
Cube up avocado and mango and 1/2 a juicy lemon. Sprinkle a little sea salt to enhance the natural flavor.
