Jerk Chicken Fajitas W/ Trinidad Roti

Note: If you don't have the time or energy to make the roti, just sub in regular flour tortillas. But if you DO have the time, you really should take it to make them...

2 Large Chicken Breasts
1 Large Orange Bell Pepper, sliced
1 Red Onion, sliced
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tbl. Canola Oil
Jerk Seasoning (Recipe Follows)
Jerk Lime Mayo (Recipe Follows)
Lime wedges, to serve

Season the chicken with the some of the jerk seasoning, and grill until done (approx. 6-8 minutes per side over medium high Heat depending on size of chicken breasts). Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes. Keep warm until ready to eat, and then thinly slice. 

Heat oil over medium high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper and salt and saute until starting to soften. Reduce heat to low, and allow to continue cooking until they begin to slightly char (not burn!) approximately 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and keep warm until ready to use. 

To serve, place a piece of Roti on a plate, and spoon some of peppers and onions into the middle. Layer the sliced grilled chicken on top, and then top with some of the sauce. Garnish with lime wedges, and check out one of my other posts for some homemade Ginger Beer. 

Jerk Seasoning:
Mix Together: 
1 Tbl. Salt
1 Tbl. Garlic Powder
2 Tsp. Sugar
2 Tsp. Onion Powder
1.5 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp. Allspice
1/2 Tsp. Black Pepper
1/2 Tsp. Nutmeg
1 Tsp. Paprika

Jerk Lime Mayo:
1/2 Cup Mayo
1 Tbl. Jerk Seasoning (or more if desired)
3 Tbl. Lime Juice
Salt & Pepper to taste (optional)

Trinidad Roti Flatbread:
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. Split peas (preferably yellow, but green works too)
1 clove garlic, crushed
5 cups water

Bring to boil and then reduce to simmer. Simmer until peas are cooked (al dente, not mushy). Anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. After split peas are cooked, drain, and then blend with the garlic. After blended, mix with 1 Tbl. cumin. 

For the dough:
5 3/4 cups flour
2 Tbl. baking powder
1.5 tsp. salt
2 cups water
1 Tbl. oil

Combine all Dough ingredients, and blend with a dough hook until a good dough comes together. It’s okay if it’s a little sticky, cause you’ll add flour when it’s time to roll them out. 

Roll out pieces of the dough and then fill with a heaping tbl. of the split pea mix. Shape into a ball and roll out as flat as possible. Add a little oil to a large pan, and cook the roti until brown on both sides over high heat.
