Rub jerk on Chicken. Cook. Eat. Have plenty of cold beer handy, preferably Red Stripe.
Now the trick is obviously in the jerk rub. You can make your own or buy a jar. Jerk is available in Caribean stores. Watch out, there is some phony stuff appearing in supermarkets which is nothing like real Jerk Seasoning.
To make your own jerk rub: Mix together to make a paste (food processor ideal). Smear all over chicken pork fish whatever. Let sit for a while.
Keep leftover rub in a jar in the frig.
