One of my favorites! Whenever I take a trip back to Jamaica, the smell of jerk is in the air....I love these delicious wings, paired with an incredible jerk spiced yogurt sauce. It takes no time to prepare-just a little prep and in the oven they go.
This recipes really reminds me of my home and the reason I created my own organic jerk spice blend. The smokey, spicy smell of the scotch bonnet peppers mixed with thyme, garlic, onion and allspice bring it all home for this incredibly authentic Jamaican favorite.
When you try this recipe with the Healthy On You® Jerk Spice, envision yourself beachside, with a rum punch, feeling the soft Caribbean air blowing your hair and the hot sun warming your skin. See the beautiful aqua blue sea in the distance, smell the fresh air and take a bite of these delicious honey jerk wings! Devine....
