Recipe Description:

Jerk is one of the enduring legacies of the fusion of African and Taino cultures in Jamaica. We can thank The Maroons for the creation of Jerk Chicken. They brought African meat cooking techniques to Jamaica and combined native Jamaican ingredients used by the Taino people to form Jerk Chicken. Today, jerk refers to both the way in which meat is prepared (slow-cooked over a closed fire or grilled over burning coals) and the seasoning used on the meat; both things adding to the evocative smokey flavour of the dish. Our jerk chicken gets its fiery kick from allspice, ginger, garlic, thyme and scotch bonnet peppers. We’ve served it with our crispy plantain and creamy slaw.
