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!

This was a good solid recipe for jerk chicken spice. I actually used it for a vegetarian dish with cabbage and mayacoba beans. Served over brown rice. Excellent!

Rita, what can I say other then WOW! With it being so hot here and our AC being out, I wanted something light and simple for dinner that wouldn't heat up the house. I made a batch of chicken salad then decided to kick it up a notch so I added your seasoning blend it was wonderful! I can't wait to try it on other dishes. Made and reviewed for the 12th Veg*n Swap.

This was really good. I left out the thyme because I recently realized that I don't care for it. I used this seasoning for Jerk Seasoned Steak and I'm looking forward to using the leftover seasoning! Made for ZWT5.

Very good and very easy! I adore the smell, and it tastes wonderful! I made this to use very successfully with Caribbean Rice in a Rice Cooker. Made for ZWT 5 - Jammin Java Jivers
