Jamaican Jerk Chicken Recipe

Youtube jerk chicken 3

This Jamaican Jerk Chicken is one of those phenomenal recipes that just pops so much, everyone will be asking for the recipe.  It is a little bit spicy but the heat can be completely controlled so that you can dial this in to your specific tastes by swapping out different peppers and lowering the Chile and cayenne content in the Jerk Seasoning.

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
