Although not a traditional jerk chicken, this is a tasty dish. Chicken soaked in a spicy marinade of brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and herbs, then grilled.
If you prefer use 1 teaspoon sambal oelek or to taste instead of the fresh chilli.
Altered ingredient amounts. Yummy, yummy in our tummies! This was great, and very easy. If you can't take the heat, I suggest cutting the habanero pepper in 1/4 or 1/2, but even our youngest loved this chicken. Also, we cooked our chicken outside on the grill - yummy! - 29 Sep 2008
If you haven't eaten jerk chicken this is a good recipe but there are better ones out there. The ones I've used have these ingrediants and a lot more, like orange juice, white wine vingar in addition to the red wine, scallions, ginger, etc. If you like this recipe, then look around for others and sample the differences. Once you come up with a great jerk sauce, you can use it on chicken, beef, pork, etc. - 29 Sep 2008
Recently returned from a trip to Jamaica, this was just the thing to take our tastebuds back! Not TOO hot, a little bit sweet - a perfect blend of spices and flavours. I served it over long grain chicken-flavoured rice, with a cold Red Stripe! Excellent!! - 29 Sep 2008
