I made this tonight for the first time. I did make some changes, but not so much to the ingredients in the recipe. I did halve the recipe because there are only two of us. The only other change I made was to leave out the jalapenos. I use McCormack's Jamaican Jerk seasoning quite a bit, and thought it would be spicy enough without the peppers. I was right, for our taste.
What I did differently was the time marinading. By the time I found the recipe I didn't have time to go to the grocery and then marinade the wings. I got a bag of frozen wings, and put the jerk directly on the chicken wing pieces, and popped them in the oven at 400 degrees for an hour.
They were fabulous! My husband said they were the best chicken wings he'd ever eaten, and suggested we have people over during the NCAA tournament to have some!
I've put myself on a strict diet, so I did some calculations to make sure I stayed within the 230 calories given in the nutrition section of this recipe, and figured I could have 4 chicken wing pieces. I served it with black beans and rice (I had 1/2 cup serving and it's more than you think), and it was a great dinner. I didn't feel at all deprived.
I will be making this again and again because we both love Caribbean food. Thanks so much for this wonderful and easy recipe!!!!
