Nothing but blue skies, sunny days, and easy breezy weekends! To celebrate the season, we put together a tropical tiki inspired party. With easy jerk chicken sandwiches and mango iced tea, this DIY party inspires you to get outside!
When you are planning a family gathering or summer soiree, the most economical thing to do is hit Sam’s Club for bulk sizes on the best items for your event. We looked for Tyson Premium Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, Lipton Iced Tea 48 One Gallon Tea Bags, and Ball Park Tailgaters Crustini Buns.
The frozen chicken breasts are versatile so you can use them for meal planning during the week or easy grilling on the weekends. And, yes, you CAN cook from frozen! The Ball Park buns are the perfect size for chicken sandwiches, and the gallon sized tea bags make it SO much easier to brew gallons of iced tea for entertaining.
We like to brew sun tea, and these gallon size tea bags fit perfectly in our glass containers for brewing! They are individually wrapped, and we opted for a fruity tiki tea recipe. We like to brew our tea outdoors in the sun, and you might like this method. It’s kind of a fun novelty for us here in Florida, and it creates delicious summertime flavor.
Mango Tiki Tea
- 1 tea bag (1 gallon size)
- 1 mango
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1 tbsp. honey
- Dice half mango into small cubes. Cut other half into moon-shaped slices for garnish.
- In glass 1-gallon tea jar, mix mango, sugar, juice, and honey with hot water.
- Add tea bag, seal it and place in direct sunlight for 2-3 hours to steep.
- Serve over ice. Add mango slice to garnish.
Iced tea is the ultimate summer refresher. You can add fruit, honey, sugar, lots of ice, or whatever other flavors you desire. We prefer the fresh fruity flavor of mango for a tropical theme. When you pair this beverage with our entree, you’ll see why we picked this flavor!
Our entree was upgraded chicken sandwiches made with Tyson and Ball Park. To make these tropical jerk chicken sandwiches, use juicy chicken breasts. You can choose to grill, saute, or bake them, just use a jerk marinade for that spicy flavor.
- 4 chicken breasts
- 4 large buns
- 4 slices, pepper jack cheese
- 1 cup jerk seasoning marinade
- 1 can pineapple, sliced
- 3 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tbsp. cayenne pepper
