Day 235 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Tempt Your Tastebuds with Jerk Chicken

Jerk Chicken
Written by Staff Writer

The premier Jamaican food, jerk’s fiery spices are used on a variety of meats, but chicken is the favorite. The jerk chicken found in Jamaica is unlike any found anywhere else – this is the real deal. Its mix of Scotch bonnet peppers, pimento, cinnamon and nutmeg dry-rubbed on the chicken – sheer perfection. Add the traditional hours-long cooking method, which is often done over a fire made of pimento wood, and you’ve got the most distinctive Jamaican meal ever. The quality of the meat is outstanding as most local chickens are raised on locally grown produce rather than imported grain, so get set to enjoy the best meal of your life.
