Jamaican Chicken (Paleo)

Hi all! I have some time on my hands for a post today! Shocker, I know. As student teaching starts wrapping up, I should be able to get back in the kitchen more and begin posting recipes more regularly again.

Until then, here’s another quick meal- Jamaican chicken. With the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice thrown in, you can double dip and make some holiday cookies at the same time 😉
