Made these delicious kabobs tonight. The marinade is really flavorful and it really makes the chicken breast moist and tender. The only changes I made to the marinade was to use jalapeno pepper and I used coconut oil. Served this chicken alongside a pasta salad. Made for Spring PAC, May, 2014.

Bravo on a very nice jerk chicken recipe. We enjoyed the chicken prepared this way. It was so flavorful, sweet, hot and spicy. Like my friend Nancy, I also used coconut oil. Made exactly as written and used 3 scotch bonnet peppers. There were so many flavors in this lovely jerk, every bite was different. The chicken was perfectly grilled, crispy, moist and tender. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again. Served with beautiful crispy naan bread and lime/cilantro mayonnaise for lovely tropical sandwiches. Made for Spring Pac 2014.
