Jerk Chicken

For some reason my wife thinks this is a funny name for a recipe. I have no idea why ;) Okay enough naughty talk, back to cooking. A very simple way to spice up some chicken. To get the most out of these yummy flavours, don’t skip on the marinade time. I’ve cooked this many-a-times and it never gets boring BUT, you have to let it sit and soak in those spices. Serving it up with a simple green salad with a lemon and oil dressing is the perfect accompaniment, especially if you’re after a light meal that won’t leave you with that feeling of regret (which none of my dishes do by the way).
