Several years ago one of my girlfriends brought me back a jar of jerk marinade from her honey moon trip to Jamaica. It was hot, spicy and all things good. The sauce didn’t last long and oddly enough we haven’t taken the time to make our own jerk seasoning sauce….until yesterday.
I had everything in the fridge needed to whip up a marinade and so the plan was set in motion and the marinade prepared. I ended up keeping 2/8 chicken thighs separate, marinating with olive oil and light seasonings since we did not know what to expect heat (spicy) wise. I marinated the chicken for about 5 hours. I only had half a jalapeno left from a previous recipe with a few ribs/seeds intact…so this is what I used. The end result, a flavourful, tasty, mild jerk chicken (hint of heat) that 3 of us loved. The 4th preferred the chicken without green on it (lol).
