Step 1

Combine the jerk seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder in a small bowl. Rub the chicken with the jerk mixture (do not over season, or the dry rub will cake up and become too thick) and marinate, refrigerated, at least 1 hour and up to overnight, but not any longer to prevent the chicken from becoming rubbery).

Step 2

Combine the mango puree, honey, sriracha, lime juice, beer and some salt and pepper in a small saucepan and heat until the mixture comes to a boil, simmer until slightly thicker and flavors have concentrated; set aside. (Depending on how much sauce you like, you may want to increase the amount, but I found that this amount was A.O.K.)

Step 3

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook without moving for 3 minutes. Flip over and brush lightly with the mango glaze. Continue cooking until cooked all the way through (to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F), about another 3 minutes. Remove from the grill and brush with more glaze. Tent loosely with foil to keep warm. Serve with Caribbean Mango Slaw (recipe follows)

Step 4

Combine the olive oil, honey, vinegar, mustard, sriracha, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl and whisk until well blended. Add the carrots, parsley, mint, cabbage and most of the almonds and mango and toss until well coated. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the remaining almonds and mango.
