Happy Tuesday! I hope your summer weather has been better than mine here in Jersey. Although I know most of the country is experiencing crazy weather from extreme heat, humidity, and crazy endless storms. I have to hold my breath every time it starts raining here since my power goes out with the flip of the wrist. Just a few weeks ago it went out in the morning for 4 hours with no explanation...no rain...nothing! But thankfully we have a generator so we can hook up the fridge, sub-pump (so the basement doesn't flood), and have a few extra outlets. But we have a well so when we have no power that also means no water.
Anyway, even though is has been extremely hot here (and humid) I try not to complain about the heat since I wish for it so much in the winter. Those freezing winter months are when I wish I lived in Jamaica or some tropical island where I don't have to wear 50 layers to stay warm. And that brings me to the premise of this post. Jamaican Jerk Seasoning! I had never cooked with this blend of spices before this winter and I have been a huge fan ever since.
So here is my recipe for Jamaican Jerk Chicken! The amounts for the spices are just general ratios. I do not measure them out I just eyeball it and play around and it always comes out great. But if you do not feel comfortable cooking intuitively just use the general amounts.
