"If you like hot-n-spicy, this is the recipe for you. It uses Scotch bonnet chilies, which are very hot. If you'd like to lower the heat, you can use jalapeno peppers instead of Scotch bonnet. The longer you marinate, the more flavorful and spicy the chicken. This recipes serves a lot. Feel free to adjust amounts to suit the number you are serving. Time does not include marinating. From Food & Wine. *The jerk marinade can be made and refrigerated overnight.* A mango or pineapple salsa would be lovely atop this chicken. The Caribbean is only a grill away...."

"FALL PAC 2009: I used jalapenos but other than that - no changes! EXCELLENT"
"We love Jerk seasonings and this is a great one. We feel a little guilty for making it milder (one jalapeno instead of three Scotch Bonnets) but one of us can't take the heat and we love this blend otherwise. We used chicken breasts and pork loin cut in strips, and found we liked the pork even better than the chicken. A backyard gas grill treat enjoyed Saturday over arborio rice, and Sunday with Recipe#232645 and Recipe#373442 at the patio table. Made for Zaar World Tour 5."
"Oh, WOW-WEE. This was a truly fantastic dish. I enjoyed the wonderful blend of the various seasonings used in the marinade, and the chicken came out so moist and tender. It was a real treat. I will make this often during grilling season. Made for ZWT5."
"So, I'm sick and in the hospital, but my husband has been cooking for the ZWT9 challenges and for himself and our kids. They really enjoyed this meal and he said it was easy to prepare. I will definitely be making this for our family when I get home and recooperated. Thanks LifeIsGood. Made for team Tasty Testers during ZWT9."
"Great chicken! I made 2 servings of this with chicken breasts and used 1/2 scotch bonnet for the 2 of us. It had great flavor and my grandson asked when we're having it again! Thanks, Kathy for a nice keeper. Made for ZWT9."
"Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful LIG. This is a great jerk recipe. So much flavor, its spicy, hot and delicious. I made this exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I ground all the spices for a nice mellow flavor. We love scotch bonnets, so this was perfect for us. Thanks for sharing a new family favorite."
"This was very tasty and spicy. YUM I added about a tablespoon of Dominican rum to the marinade. I marinaded the chicken for 7 hours and cooked in the oven. I served it with a coconut lime rice, and recipe#170738#170738 recipe#160331#160331 and my own recipe for a mango salsa. Made for ZWT 5 for team Zaar Chow Hounds"
