Sweet, ripe nectarines offer a cool counterpoint to this spicy jerk chicken salad. Accompany with Wholesome Cornbread and beans & rice.


  • 4 tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried jerk seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce
  • 4 teaspoons honey, divided
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 3 ripe nectarines, pitted and thickly sliced
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 8 cups torn or shredded romaine lettuce


Mix 1 tablespoon lime juice, jerk seasoning, steak sauce, 2 teaspoons honey and oil in a shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high or preheat broiler.

Stir together nectarines, scallions, remaining 3 tablespoons lime juice and remaining 2 teaspoons honey in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Oil grill rack or broiler pan. Grill chicken until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. (Alternatively, place thighs on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat, 4 to 5 minutes per side). Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Let stand for 5 minutes, then slice diagonally.

Toss romaine with nectarine mixture in a large bowl. Divide among 6 plates and arrange chicken on top. Serve immediately.
