The marinade was very nice. I used about a tbls. of jalapeno peppers instead of the scotch bonnet, for a milder marinade.I also used boneless, skinless chicken breasts in place of the quarters. Thanks for a tasty way to fix chicken!

I skipped the scallion (just don't like them) and doubled the garlic. This was fantastic!!! Really moist chicken and the leftovers were great on a salad the next day!

Wow, this was hot for me!!! I knew it because I used the scotch bonnett peppers, solved that by drinking lots of white wine! Like Sharon I used breasts and we barbequed them, really enjoyed it!!

I enjoyed this! It was the star of my Menu #28849 menu. I did use hot paprika, a sprinkle of habanero flakes from chilies I dried last fall. Skipped the cinnamon DH doesn`t like it in savory. Silly him! Doubled up on the garlic, thyme, and allspice. I used a whole chicken that I quartered. Marinaded overnight. I did add oil to the marinade because it help the spices get into the meat! Made for ZWT5. Thanks Sandy! ;)

This is so delicious. I did half the recipe with 1 scotch bonnet pepper. I though it would be very spicy but it wasn't. I used 1 garlic clove. I used boneless chicken breasts and they were in the marinade overnight. Thanks Chia :) made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5

This was good, but I wish it had a stronger "jerk" flavor. I used green chili peppers, I too skipped the scallions, just because I didn't have any on hand, but I don't think that changes the "jerk flavor at all just the spiciness. Made for ZWT5

I couldn't find the right pepper so I used 1 tsp ground cayenne. But turns out it wasn't spicy enough. Also, the sweetness typical of jerk wasn't there. Next time, I'm going to try using a little brown sugar. Slitting the chicken was a very good suggestion. Fairly good, overall.

These were at huge hit at a pot luck this evening. I made a double batch with drumsticks and thighs cooked in the oven. There were three other types of Caribbean chicken dishes and this was gone first. I only had 1 bunch of scallions so I used 1/2 of a sweet onion to replace the second. Just loved this one. Thanks Chia!
