To make Jamaican jerk chicken, season 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves with 1/2 teaspoon of Jamaican jerk seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cook the chicken in a nonstick skillet at medium-high heat for four minutes per side. Serve the chicken with a salsa made from 1/4 cup of minced fresh cilantro, 1/4 cup of finely chopped red onion, 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh mint and 16 ounces of sliced mango. Season the salsa with 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of fresh lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper and 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper.

Make asopao de pollo, a traditional chicken dish from Puerto Rico, by combining 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper and 2 minced garlic cloves for the seasoning mix. Rub the mixture on 10 skinless chicken thighs, and cook the chicken in 2 tablespoons of olive oil at medium-high heat for four minutes on each side. Turn the heat to medium, and mix in 1 1/2 cups of sofrito sauce and 3/4 cups of diced plum tomatoes. After three minutes, add in 2/3 cup of dry white wine, 1 1/2 cups of uncooked rice, 1/2 cup of diced lean beef and 3/4 cup of pitted green olives.

Cook everything for one minute before adding 4 cups of water and 1 can of chicken broth, and bringing the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat, and simmer the asopao, covered, for 20 more minutes. Add 1 cup of frozen green peas, and cook for five more minutes before serving.
