Well, for the most part I liked this. I tried it on some chicken breasts and it just didn't have that sweet heat that jerk seasoning should have. I ended up making a glaze out of pureed pineapple with a bit of sriracha mixed in and brushing that over the chicken breasts a minute or so before they came off the heat. The spice mix has plenty of the spicy heat to it, but not that sweetness that I would expect. I'll probably try it again but add more brown sugar and tweak the rest of the ingredients up and down a bit.
A nice touch of heat and great flavor...I made half the recipe...and omitted the dried chives...cuz I didn't have any so used a touch of fresh with my fish I made for dinner...I have plenty left for using on my future meals. Thanks for posting it! :)
This was really good. It wasn't quite what I was used to buying from the store but it was still good. On the other hand, my husband is a HUGE fan. He's been putting it on everything that goes on the grill and it's been wonderful. Thank you for posting!
