skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into chunks
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups
chopped green onions
habanero peppers, chopped
I found this recipe to be very good used in the crock pot. Instead of using the mixture as a marinade, just put it in the crock pot with either the chicken as indicated or with a good pork shoulder. The flavors REALLY come out in the slow cooking process and gives a very aromatic and great tasting jerk flavor. Note though, I used one habanero pepper. If you really like it hot, add more, but know that you get the full effect from the pepper in the crock pot!
POOR TASTE; LONG TIME TO MAKE. VERY POOR COMPARED TO AUTHENTIC JAMAICAN CHICKEN.
Excellent recipe for traditional jerk seasoning. The most important step is to marinate. The longer the better! Dont forget to get the jerk effect slow roast over coals and hardwood such as pimento or hickory.
This is possibly the best recipe I've ever found on allrecipes. I make it with the barbequed pineapple recipe and the calypso beans and rice recipe both found on this site. Don't overcook the meat--and the longer you marinate, the better it is!
very good jerk recipe, especially for beginers.....very spicy which is good, not as many flavors as in a more traditional jamaican jerk recipe....maybe substitute a bit of the water with soy sauce or woestschire sauce
Very good! I omitted the water and just marinated it in the paste with the juice of only one lime. I also only used one habanero and it was plenty spicy. I served it with the calypso beans and rice like everyone suggested...what a winning recipe!
This is so good. I used canned jalepeno pepper instead because habanero is not available here. Instead of a whole cup of water, I only used a bit to dilute the paste so it's easier to marinade the chicken. I also threaded the chicken pieces on skewers to make grilling easier. Went really well on a bed of white rice.
this is a favorite of myself and my boyfriend. i have used the marinade/paste in many ways. chicken in a pan, roasted chicken thighs, ect. this recipe compares to one at my favorite restaurant. i love it!!! i usually serve plantains and rice with this meal.
