This isn't bad but let me give you guys a little tip. You don't have to use all these ingredients to get jerk chicken. All you have to use is jerk seasoning onion thyme a few pimento seedsand hot peppers. Just add enough powder seasoning that will give it taste. Then use a fork to put some holes in the chicken so that the inside of the chicken can soak up some of the seasoning. Preferably leave it over night in the fridge so that it can marinate and taste better. Then take it out about 30mins prior to cooking then just put it on the grill for about up to and hour or less. Then serve That's the Jamaican recipe I know because I'm Jamaican Read More

When I first tasted this I thought there was too much cinnamon. I was wrong it is just right! More than one tablespoon fresh jalapeno pepper should be used. Also instead of orange juice I used orange juice concentrate for a more intense orange flavor. That worked really well! Read More

This was awesome. I did use it on pork instead of chicken but I did read that Jamaican Jerk is traditionally made with goat or pork rather than chicken anyway. Upon grilling it takes on a just lovely aroma. We topped it with the Hot Banana Salsa from the website. I liked it--it was fresh and healthy and aromatic. My husband added some hickory chips while grilling. I don't know how much of a difference that really makes. It was yummy. Read More

This came out a little dry for me but that was my fault because I used chicken breasts cut into strips and I over-cooked it just a tad. Next time I'll add more jalapeno and maybe marinate a little longer and of course not cook as long. The flavor was really good but not as spicy as I was expecting. I even used a serano pepper. I liked the lime and all the sweet spices in it. Good flavor! Read More
