Jerk Chicken

Published on 20 Apr 2016

Jerk is a Jamaican style of cooking in which meat, most commonly chicken, is marinated or dry-rubbed with a very hot spice mix. This particular jerk chicken recipe is a wet marinade and one I got from a gentleman I met on a trip to Turks & Caicos –although his secrets still allude me as his was far better.
