Mushroom and Onion Topping:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a baking dish, combine yogurt, jerk seasoning, capers, thyme, and parsley. Mix and add salt and pepper to taste. If you like a little kick, double the amount of jerk seasoning. Add chicken to baking dish, evenly coat with jerk, yogurt mixture.
Place chicken in the oven and bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes. While chicken is baking, sauté mushroom and onion topping.
Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions:
Heat medium-large pan with coconut oil. Add garlic and onions. Sauté for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and wine. Sauté until tender (approximately 5 minutes).
Remove from heat and set aside until chicken is about 10 minutes from done. When chicken is 10 minutes from being cooked through, top chicken with mushroom and onion mixture.
Bake an additional 10 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and completely cooked through. Serve and enjoy!
A simple side dish: Chop and bake sweet potatoes while the chicken is baking. Top potatoes with cinnamon.
