Why is this high protein recipe so badass you ask? If you make it you'll experience super-tasty, succulent, moist chicken due to the delicious yet very easy marinade. The spicy sweet potato wedges for your carbohydrates go really well with the chicken too. If you don't have Jamaican jerk seasoning for the wedges then you can use any other spice mix in your cupboard. For example, this works just as well with Cajun spice, fajita seasoning, steakhouse pepper, etc.
