    French Tart's Note:

    A classic Jamaican Jerk Chicken recipe, sent to me by a friend in Kingston, Jamaica! You can adjust the "heat" to your own requirements - and don't forget the Rum Punch! Try to use fresh limes wherever possible.....it makes such a difference to the taste. Edited to say: In response to a recent review, please note that this IS a GENUINE jerk recipe from a very good friend who lives in Jamaica - whom I have visited many times! However, this is NOT a "commercial" flavoured jerk seasoning mix. It is very spicy and may not suit those of you who dislike strong spices, such as allspice and nutmeg, which are quite strong! Feel free to adjust these seasonings if you wish - the taste may be more to your liking, if not 100% authentic! Thanks! :-)

      This was really good.... I had never had jerk chicken before and was unsure of it at first.... The first night I ate it, I wasn't sure of the allspice taste if I liked that or not... My kids loved it and had seconds.... Well, we had a piece leftover and I had it for lunch the next day and I was sold.... It was really wonderful.... Thanks for sharing....

      I found this to be delightful and not too hot. I used chicken legs as thats what was defrosted. I will be making this a lot more often.

      I am sorry but this was awful. I followed the recipe exactly; even marianated overnight. The marinade smelled heavenly but after grilling (using boneless/skinless chicken thighs) the flavor was not good. I have had Jerk Chicken from Jamaica and this is no where near it. The only way I salvaged all my good chicken was to smother it in tons of bbq sauce.
