Jerk Pork Chops

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Lorrie in Montreal

A 30 minute home-cooked meal for all of us cooks on the go! Start some rice on to cook and while the chops are cooking, whip up a quick salad. Recipe from Elizabeth Baird's Canadian Living book "Make it tonight". The amount of cayenne is totally up to you...if you have some hot peppers available,by all means add them into the marinade...traditionally Scotch Bonnet Peppers are used in Jerk Marinades. This recipe can easily be used for chicken as well....slash the chicken at even intervals and cover with marinade.
