Jay’s Jerk Chicken

Recipe by: KIBADA22

“This is one of my nephew’s favorite grilled recipes. Jerk means Jamaican barbecue. This well rounded flavor of sweet, hot, herbal and spicy chicken can be served with rice, beans or pasta. Or just make a chicken sandwich out of it! I also add garlic and a kiwi to the marinade.” agen ceme
