Jamaican Jerk Chicken

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Scarlett516

The scotch bonnet pepper is a key ingredient, but if you can't find it, a habanero would make the best substitute. You may want to wear gloves while cutting the pepper and don't rub your eyes until after washing your hands! Time does not include marinating.
