Jerk Chicken Wings

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

From "Caribbean Carnival", Good Food Magazine, February 1987. Prep times does not include 2 hours to marinate. I believe the traditional hot chile pepper to use is Scotch bonnet, but you can use your preference.

I prepped these in the marinade before I headed off to work and DH did the grilling and fed the family. He had to hide a few pieces for me or I'd have gotten none ! Kids and DH loved the chicken and it's going on our regular rotation for sure. I had chicken breasts on hand so actually used those cut up into approx sizes of chicken wings. Double D-Delicious ! Made with Recipe #373135 which was a perfect complement to the chicken. Thanks for posting this lovely recipe Jackie ! Made for Team Tasty Tester's during ZWT #9 :)
