This is traditionally served with cucumber sauce and yucca fries(you can sub french fries). I have given the recipe for the sauce. Prep time includes marinating overnight. This is also popular in Florida.

      Great chicken recipe. I really liked the spices for the chicken. They were a little spicy but not as strong as other jerk recipes. I could not find bonnet peppers and substituted a jalapeno pepper in the marinade. Marinating the chicken overnight made the chicken so tender that you could cut it with a fork. The cucumber dipping sauce was a hit. However, next time I will be making half the recipe because I had a lot left over. Thanks for posting this great recipe. Made for ZWT5.

      The kebabs were so good. I had them marinating overnight and all I can say is that the meat was very juice and tender and lip-smackingly spicy. The cucumber dipping sauce was a delicious cool accompaniment.

      Oh, so yummy!!! I put this recipe together in the morning and grilled them that evening, so they marinated about 8 hours. I also couldn't find scotch bonnet peppers and had to sub in jalapeno. Loved the flavor of the chicken, it had spice without being too spicy, lol, if that makes sense. I halved the cucumber sauce and it still made quite a bit. The sauce is awesome!! and is a must with the chicken, the two went together perfectly. Made for Las Mistico Magicos Sirenas - ZWT5.
