I like jerk chicken but often don't have all the exotic ingredients. This simplifies the mix by using dry italian dressing. Yummy on the Grill!

You're so right, this was so simple and so so yummy. I used boneless chicken breast tenders. I loved the hint of the cinnamon flavor. This is a recipe I will make again and again. Thanks so much for sharing it.

It is not much work to get some ground allspice to substitute for the salad dressing. The foundation of jerk is allspice and scotch bonnet peppers of which this recipe has neither. I'm sure the recipe is tasty as per the reviews but it really is inaccurate to call it jerk, sorry, don't mean to be a...jerk.

This is a HUGE hit around the household. Can guarantee everyone will be at the table for this one! We use boneless chicken breasts marinated in this overnight... and then combine it with a cucumber dipping sauce. YUMMY!!!
