Jerk Chicken Mango Avocado Sliders Recipe

The first time I had jerk chicken was actually in Jamaica! I was there on one of my favorite blogging retreats EVER, and I immediately fell in love with jerk chicken.

I mean, it’s hard not to fall in love with food when you are sitting on a warm beach with clear blue waters lapping at your feet while you devour a jerk chicken sandwich… Especially when there are a few tropical drinks involved.

All of the different spices with the juicy chicken was pure bliss and ever since then, whenever I want to imagine myself on an island, I make jerk chicken.

Usually I marinate chicken with jerk spices and grill it, but sometimes you just don’t have enough time for that.

This is my shortcut around the marinade and grilling time, with the help of my trusty Instant Pot.

The Instant Pot really is the best tool in the kitchen, isn’t it? I swear I don’t go more than a day without using mine!

Chicken is combined with homemade jerk chicken seasoning, then cooked for a quick 15 minutes on High pressure.

This gets the chicken flavorful, juicy, and tender! You just shred the chicken, then pile it on top of Hawaiian buns.

The smooth and creamy avocado with the tang and spice of the fruity mango salsa is just the extra nudge these sliders need to be really over-the-top.

You can serve them up for tailgating to feed your crew or even for a light lunch!

If you happen to have any chicken and salsa leftover at the end, know that you can also make some killer tacos with the leftovers.
