This was VERY good and I WILL be making this over and over again.
Not authentic jerk, but my favorite jerk recipe is SO labor intensive. This was quick and easy. I made it as a dump recipe (thank you, OAMC forum) and we thawed and grilled it. Minimal effort for a lot of flavor. I will add to my (hopefully) growing OAMC rotation.
This was good, but I didnt give it 5 stars because it definitly was did not have the authentic jerk chicken flavor.
We love this chicken! It is so yummy! We make it fairly often. I make it exactly as written. Thanks for such an easy and great recipe!
Loved this recipe!! I really loved how it had a little bit of kick that snuck back up on! Very easy and definately one of my new ways to fix chicken!! Thanks for such a great recipe!
Love, love, love this recipe! I've made this a few times now; even made it for a dinner party and it never fails to impress. I cook it in the oven since I don't have a grill and it turns out perfect. Prep is easy, just mix and toss in the fridge. The taste is just incredible!
i loooooved it. a simple rice usally complements it well but I made it with my special mac and cheese (layered and baked)and a carrot soufle. it was awesome. i've found that it tastes better with thighs.
This is a really good, spicy-sweet juicy chicken. My marinade wasn't quite pourable - it was almost a paste. I followed the recipe exactly so I'm not sure if I used the wrong size dressing mix or what. I did substitute 1/2 tsp chipotle powder for the ground red pepper because I wasn't sure what it was.
UPDATE, Jan 24/'08: Made them last night (using chicken thighs again) but didn't cook them on the grill, this time I used a skillet pan (much to cold outside to grill) and they came out perfectly. I (mistakenly) added two teaspoons of cinnamon (never try to carry on a conversation while preparing a recipe) and decided to also add some sugar (about 1 tsp) this time which added a nice sweetness to the sauce. They were delicious! I made this recipe last night on the grill, using chicken thighs. I've never had Jerk chicken before so I can't vouch for the authenticity of the flavors but this recipe was delicious. I didn't have any ground red pepper so I substituted that with red pepper flakes. I only marinated them for an hour but they were tasty and very moist. I'll definitely be making these again.
