Home Cookin’ !!! Chicken Recipes while living “The Dream”, at the Villas of Oil Nut Bay, British Virgin Islands

First 7 home photos: Peninsula Villa #6 (spec home, not yet built, Oil Nut bay, BVI)

Next 5 food photos : One Pan Jerk Chicken (more info further down)

Damn!! Its been over 8 years since my trip to Oil Nut Bay, a 300 acre private community….

…..only accessible by boat or helicopter in the British Virgin Islands.

Eight years ago the development had just started, no houses had been completed yet, but several were under construction…..


I’ll be honest, I thought my master plan I call “The Great Escape” would be accomplished by now…

…and I’d already be down there living “The Dream”, all chilled out, living that upscale, sustainable organic lifestyle!!!


But that’s OK, life has not taken a toll on me. This is the stage of life where living a healthy lifestyle pays dividends…..

And the “Master Plan” is in full throttle, and it’s gonna happen….


So, I’d better save off these 10 tropical style chicken recipes for when I make it down there ….

Because “The Dream” is still alive…….         yep 🙂

[4 food photos above and 1 below] One Pan Caribbean Jerk Chicken with Pineapple-Coconut Rice

The Healthy Chef’s “healthy morsel”: Very good recipe with organic ingredients, one note being, as pertains to the soy sauce in the recipe, I try to avoid soy at all times. But I keep this homemade “soy sauce alternative”  recipe on file(or figure out a way to do the recipe without it)

(click any of 4 food photos above or one below for recipe)

The Healthy Chef’s “healthy morsel”: For the sugar in the recipe, swap in healthy Coconut Palm Sugar (Whole Foods has it)

(click photo below for recipe)

[below] Jerk Chicken Collard (or Lettuce) Wraps

The Healthy Chef’s “healthy morsel”: I’ll swap in Romaine Lettuce instead of Collards, that’s just my preference. But good recipe for when I “sometimes” want to avoid the bread…..

[below] Jerk Wings

The Healthy Chef’s “healthy morsel”: Decent recipe, except where it simply says “oil” in the recipe. My number one healthy eating rule for myself and others is to NEVER eat or cook with any oil except Coconut Oil (a VERY Healthy Oil),  or Olive Oil!!!

[below] Caribbean Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

The Healthy Chef’s “healthy morsel”: Same soy sauce note as mentioned in first recipe, I try to avoid soy at all times, but I keep this homemade “soy sauce alternative” recipe on file (or figure out a way to do the recipe without it)

(click photo below for recipe)

[below] Chicken Cucumber and Avocado Salad

The Healthy Chef’s “healthy morsel”: with organic ingredients and a pasture raised chicken from Whole Foods or elsewhere, this recipe is 5-star healthy as it is. I like to see recipes still using tried and true olive oil, as opposed to Vegetable Oils such as Crisco and Wesson, or my arch enemy, toxic, poison Canola Oil.

[below] Coconut Lime Chicken

The Healthy Chef’s “healthy morsel”: It’s personal choice , but I like to do this type of recipe with chicken thighs as opposed to chicken breasts. The Fatty thighs make for a more savory skillet. Don’t be afraid of fat from high quality meats, poultry and fish.
