    LifeIsGood's Note:

    If you like hot-n-spicy, this is the recipe for you. It uses Scotch bonnet chilies, which are very hot. If you'd like to lower the heat, you can use jalapeno peppers instead of Scotch bonnet. The longer you marinate, the more flavorful and spicy the chicken. This recipes serves a lot. Feel free to adjust amounts to suit the number you are serving. Time does not include marinating. From Food & Wine. *The jerk marinade can be made and refrigerated overnight.* A mango or pineapple salsa would be lovely atop this chicken. The Caribbean is only a grill away....

      FALL PAC 2009: I used jalapenos but other than that - no changes! EXCELLENT

      We love Jerk seasonings and this is a great one. We feel a little guilty for making it milder (one jalapeno instead of three Scotch Bonnets) but one of us can't take the heat and we love this blend otherwise. We used chicken breasts and pork loin cut in strips, and found we liked the pork even better than the chicken. A backyard gas grill treat enjoyed Saturday over arborio rice, and Sunday with Jamaican Jerk Potato Salad and Webo Yena (Deviled Eggs) at the patio table. Made for Zaar World Tour 5.

      Oh, WOW-WEE. This was a truly fantastic dish. I enjoyed the wonderful blend of the various seasonings used in the marinade, and the chicken came out so moist and tender. It was a real treat. I will make this often during grilling season. Made for ZWT5.
