Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Cut the chicken thigh into 2cm pieces. In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, chicken, mild Caribbean jerk seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil. Add the salt and a pinch of pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside.


Drain the sweetcorn. Finely chop the tomato and cucumber. Roughly chop the coriander. Shred the cos lettuce.


Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. When the pan is hot, add the sweetcorn and cook, tossing, until lightly charred, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the tomato, cucumber, coriander and vinegar. Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.

TIP: Cover the pan with a lid if the corn kernels are "popping" out.


Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken and cook, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 5-6 minutes.

TIP: If the pan is getting a little crowded, cook the chicken in batches for best results!


While the chicken is cooking, heat the mini flour tortillas on a plate in the microwave or in a sandwich press for 10 second bursts, until warmed through.


Bring everything to the table to serve. Build your tacos by spreading the tortillas with a layer of garlic aioli. Top with the cos lettuce, Jamaican chicken and charred corn salsa.
