    lazyme's Note:

    Natives of Barbados (who call themselves Bajans) love this fried chicken with fiery spices. It is a version of "seasoning up" as it's called on many islands. You might even prefer to refrigerate the chicken with the spices for an hour or two, to let the flavors really take hold. From "Caribbean Cooking" by John DeMers.
