Who would have thought low FODMAP chicken jerk could taste so good! Jam packed with herbs and spices this recipe delivers a 10/10 flavour explosion. Pair it with a zingy red slaw and top with a refreshing yoghurt sauce to make some amazing tacos that are definitely worth the extra prep time!

Preparation Time: 45 minutes (plus overnight marinating)
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

700-800g chicken
2 tsp garlic infused oil
1 tbs lime juice
1 1/2 tbs soy sauce
2 tsp white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp dried thyme
1 heaped tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground all spice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper – depending on taste

Red Slaw
400g red cabbage, thinly shredded
2 medium carrots, grated
1/2 bunch coriander
1 tbs apple cider vinegar (can be replaced with white or white wine vinegar)
1/2 tbs olive oil
1 tsp sugar

Yoghurt Sauce
1/2 cup natural yoghurt (or lactose free yogurt if you’re lactose intolerant)
100g cucumber, seeded and finely chopped (approx. 6-7cm length of cucumber)
1 tbs garlic infused oil
Pinch of salt

12 corn tortillas
Chilli flakes – Once assembled the chicken loses most of its heat so if you like your tacos hot, chilli flakes are a must.

Blend together all chicken marinade ingredients (bar the chicken!). Unroll chicken thighs and pull apart large pieces (I can usually get 1 off very easily) to create roughly even sized pieces. Cover chicken in marinade and refrigerate overnight (or for a minimum of 3 or so hours)

Jamaican Chicken Jerk and Red Slaw Tacos

Pre-heat oven to 175 degrees fan forced. Place chicken in a lined baking tray, this will prevent the chicken getting stuck and help with clean up later! Roast chicken for 15 minutes on one side, then turn and cook for another 15 minutes or until cooked through. Turn oven to grill setting and grill for 4 or 5 minutes to slightly char chicken.

While chicken is cooking, mix cabbage, carrot, radishes and coriander in a medium bowl. Whisk vinegar, olive oil and sugar until well combined then toss through slaw.
