This recipe is good but it's not a Jamaican Jerk seasoning recipe. I'm not going to dissect every detail but I would recommend that you use a Jamaican Jerk rub instead or trying to make your own. The ingredients list is not all inclusive for a true Jamaican Jerk rub. Marinating the meat is an essential step in making Jerk Chicken.

The blend of spices was delicious and this dish is so easy to prepare. Smells great while cooking too! I served this with potato and a salad for a quick, healthy, and tasty meal tonight - thanks for sharing!

We all liked the spice blend and we thought the amount of heat about right. I let the chicken set for about one-half hour after applying the rub, and seared it in very hot oil about 30 seconds on each side and then went with the 4 to 5 minutes per side. Very similar to some of the "blackened" recipes we see so much of here in New Orleans. Served it with succotash and sliced tomatoes. Good meal!

Good, but I found the cayenne overwhelmed the other spices.

I too found this in the cooking light magazine, but thought they were just ok. Easy to prepare, but nothing special about the taste. Not sure what it was missing, but it was just ok.

i was not looking for HOT because hubby cannot handle it but i was looking for punch and despite all the seasonings it didn't quite have the punch i was hoping for. I will give it one more try and applying the rub in the morning and let marinade in the fridge for the day to see if it helps. I also oven baked the chicken as we are not big on fried food.TY for the posting and i will update when i try it the new way.

I made these last night and they were not spicy at all. (But I think I have an asbestos tongue). Even my 5 yr old tried some! I did cook them at 45 minutes in the oven at 350. I am not a fan of pan frying chicken...It takes too long and time is something I run out of daily:) Thanks NurseDi!

I have been looking for a "rub" recipe with the right spices-this was a great one! I cut the spices into a fourth & used 1 chicken breast. I also baked it for 350 for an hour & turned it over in the middle. For fun, I used some fat free ranch dressing to dip the chicken in, but the meat was pretty flavorful on its own, too! It was moist & tender! Thank you for sharing!

Whoops, instead of "rubbing" the chicken with the spices, we rolled the chicken in the spices! The result was so spicy it nearly burned our tongues off-- but the plain chicken pieces we cooked in the same pan were milder and more manageable. Very tasty! This is definitely one to make again.
