Jerk Chicken Shopping Tip

Daunted by all the different spices you might have to buy and never use again? Stores often carry ready-made jerk seasoning.

Jerk Chicken Cooking Tip

Jerk chicken in its most authentic guise is intensely hot – but if you just like the flavor of fresh peppers without the heat, then you can scrape out the seeds and the membrane on the inside of the peppers. This is where most of the capsaicin is stored, the chemical responsible for the sensation of heat on your tongue, and also a powerful antimicrobial agent.
