I am making the LAWL Jerk Chicken Recipe tonight! I just thought I'd throw that out there b/c it is so stinkin' good. It is one of my favorite recipes in the cookbook. For anyone who hasn't tried it... you should. Even though it seems like a lot of ingredients, it is finished in a snap with a food processor. Sometimes it is good to hear which recipes are good ones on plan. The other one I make is the Tzatziki Sauce (or cucumber sauce) for chicken gyros with whole wheat pitas and reduced fat feta - YUM!

BTW, here is the recipe. Just put all of these ingredients into a food processor. Once blended, marinate chicken in a freezer bag for 24 hours (or as long as you can). I serve with a vegetable and brown rice.
