the jerkyest chicken around

READY IN: 5hrs 30mins
Recipe by crazymom

I can't take the heat of scotch bonnet peppers so I substitute jalapenos, but this is a really great chicken dish

This was very good jerk marinade. Not quite the slow cooked Jamaican jerk of island fame, but very good none the less. I also used jalapenos so perhaps the Scotch Bonnet peppers would have given it a bit more heat which it could have used. I used it with chicken legs which took substantially longer than three minutes, more like ten until they were done.
