Sam’s Jamaican Jerk Chicken
When I have the time and only on a weekend, I love to make my Jerk Chicken recipe. From I was a child I would watch my mom make this delicious traditional Jamaican dish. It’s easy and definitely a labor of love that she made only in the summer when she could slow cook it outside on a charcoal grill, on low. She would make pounds of it for backyard BBQ’s and family events. Our whole neighborhood would have this amazing smell wafting through the streets.
I learned so much from watching her blending all of the ingredients for the marinade, chopping the chicken and making her dry rub. I absorbed all of this and it was one of my main reasons for wanting to start my own gourmet organic spice company. I truly became spice-obsessed from early on!
Fast forward to this wonderful recipe where you control the heat. Give it a try, be patient and remember, keep the grill flame low and take your time to minimize the char.
