  1. Keep the chicken cubes inside a large bowl and toss two tablespoons of jerk seasoning on the chicken.
  2. Pour water into a large pot and bring it to a boil. Make sure that you put a generous amount of salt in the water. Cook the pasta al dente, as it says on the pasta packet.

  7. Add the garlic to the pan and let them cook until it is fragrant.
  8. Stir the cream and the chicken stock and cook it till the mixture is thick
  9. Add chicken back inside the pan and then add the pasta. Toss them together until all of it is completely covered with the sauce. So, be sure to add some pasta water if the sauce seems too thick.
  10. Stir the grated parmesan, garnish with some parsley, and enjoy the creamiest Rasta pasta you will ever have.
