The Delicious Details: Jerk Chicken

Jerk meats (which can be chicken, beef, pork, goat, or seafood) come to us from the Caribbean, specifically Jamaica. The meat is covered in a mouth-watering mixture of spices, and then is cooked slowly over a fire. The mixture of the spices and the smoke from the fire create the unique jerk flavor. Jerk chicken connoisseurs describe the flavor to be smoky and spicy. Common ingredients in jerk chicken seasoning include allspice, peppers, cloves, cinnamon, scallions, nutmeg, thyme, garlic, brown sugar, ginger and salt, to name a few.  Some favorite side dishes with jerk chicken are rice, beans, vegetables and sweet potatoes.
