Creamy Jerk Chicken Pasta - Bianca Dottin

Growing up in a West Indian household, meant that jerk chicken was a staple menu item in our home. When I was little, the spice of the jerk seasoning used to be too spicy for my palette. Now, I can’t get enough of it.

I remember the first time having jerk chicken pasta or rasta pasta as it was called. It was amazing, and actually how I found out I was pregnant with Tatiana. My husband and I, who was my boyfriend at the time, were on a trip to New York visiting family the first summer after graduating from high school. We were on our way to the airport to head home and decided to stop at a popular Jamaican restaurant on the way. We both ordered Rasta Pasta. It was the most delicious pasta I had ever had. Even though it was mouthwatering, it did not sit well with my stomach one we got into the air. That was the beginning of my “morning sickness”.

As a mom, I wanted to introduce my kids to foods from our culture and others so I introduced jerk chicken at an early age. However, the spice was too much for Tatiana too. I needed to come up with a recipe where I could take the spice down a notch without sacrificing the flavor. This creamy jerk chicken pasta allowed me to do just that. The heat of the jerk seasoning and the creamy sauce makes the perfect combination. This pasta is now a family favorite and in regular rotation on our monthly menu.

    You have combined two of my favorite dishes into one super dish! I love creamy pasta, and I fell in love with jerk chicken when we were down in Jamaica a few years ago.

      Jamaica is the best place to try jerk chicken for the first time!

    I haven’t had any type of jerk seasoning in a long time. My pallet has definitely changed and I like spicier stuff now.
