I liked this very much-my boyfriend thought this was way too hot and spicy. I will decrease the peppers next time...I served this with white rice. Thanks for the great recipe!
Since I didn't have any rubber gloves to wear while I chopped the scotch pepper, I decided to do the marinade in the food processor. It worked great. I did mix the oil, soy sauce and juices together first then poured it through the feeder tube so it drained slowly into the mixture. I made half of the recipe with one scotch pepper and it was HOT. Good flavor, but a bit too hot for me. Heat factor was fine for DH. Served it with Spicy Sweet Potatoes (#37106) which were also good, but added to the fire in my mouth. Will serve with something cool next time -- I think grilled pineapple would be great with this. **UPDATE** I used the leftover chicken in the Whole Foods Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wraps (#225210) today for lunch and they were very good too.
There is a lot going on in this, so it takes some time to mix up, but it's worth it.
I added some cayenne pepper to this recipe and it gave it a little extra kick (not that it needs it). All my guests loved it!
This recipe is a keeper! Thanks!
Oh my lordie...this was to die for. It was a bit spicy...I'd probably go easy on the peppers next time. Nevertheless, best chicken dish I have ever had. I made a mango cilantro salsa to go with it. It was a great sweet balance for the spicy dish. I would make this a million more times.
Woohoo - am so glad to find this recipe! Not exactly what we just had in Jamaica, but still absolutely terrific. The sauce especially was much thicker than what we had but very, very good. Used 2 habanero peppers, but still could have been a little spicier so will probably do at least 3 next time - yes, next time we'll serve this to company!
I made this for my boyfriends birthday party where there where over 15 people including my family who has never had jamaican food before, every single person loved it and the aroma stayed in my kitchen for days. We all loved it! great recipe!
Very spicey and delicious chicken. This marinade not only adds terrific flavor but also the chicken was sooo tender and juicey. Thanks for posting Iowa Girl
