Is Jerk Chicken Spicy?
No, it is not spicy but really delicious. If you want a more spicy dish, try my Jerk Chicken Stir Fry recipe.
Are Bahama Breeze Jerk Chicken Pasta Kids Friendly?
Yes. I would say even kids under 10 years old would like this recipe. The only thing they won’t enjoy is the breadcrumbs and parsley because of the strong scent. Don’t use too much, or your kids may complain of an “unpleasant” taste.
Is Jerk Chicken Good For Weight Loss?
Yes, this dish is considered healthy for weight loss as it is high in protein and has good carbs. Protein keeps your stomach full for a long time, and the carby goodness will not cause any blood sugar highs or lows.
Can I Freeze Bahama Breeze Jerk Chicken Pasta?
Yes, this dish can be frozen. You can freeze it in individual servings or in one big batch. I suggest freezing the pasta separately because pasta tends to soak up water. When the noodles thaw, they will get soft and soggy if they are soaked in liquid.
Is Jerk Chicken Anti-Inflammatory?
Yes, it has anti-inflammatory properties because of the cayenne in it. The cayenne is also good for the immune system, so you can use it with or without inflammation.
How To Make This Recipe Better?
You can substitute fried chicken with boneless skinless chicken breast halves and cut them into strips. Because they are already cooked, you need less time to prepare the dish.
You can also substitute canned mushrooms with fresh mushrooms, but I suggest sautéing or stir-frying them before adding them to the dish.
How To Reheat Bahama Breeze Jerk Chicken Pasta?
You can also reheat it in the microwave. Just make sure the pasta is well drained and add it to a container that can fit the amount of pasta you want to reheat. Cook it in the microwave until pasta is heated throughout.
How To Store Bahama Breeze Jerk Chicken Pasta?
You can store this dish in the fridge for up to 1 week. You don’t have to freeze it because it is easy to thaw and heat up in the microwave. It will keep for about 2 days in the fridge before it starts tasting bad and begins to affect your mood if you eat too much of it at one time.
You can freeze this dish for 1 month.
The Bottom Line
I hope you will enjoy Bahama Breeze Jerk Chicken Pasta Recipe. It is a great meal for meat lovers. Once you try it, I am certain you will be cooking it often.
