A classic Jamaican Jerk Chicken recipe, sent to me by a friend in Kingston, Jamaica! You can adjust the "heat" to your own requirements - and don't forget the Rum Punch! Try to use fresh limes wherever makes such a difference to the taste. Edited to say: In response to a recent review, please note that this IS a GENUINE jerk recipe from a very good friend who lives in Jamaica - whom I have visited many times! However, this is NOT a "commercial" flavoured jerk seasoning mix. It is very spicy and may not suit those of you who dislike strong spices, such as allspice and nutmeg, which are quite strong! Feel free to adjust these seasonings if you wish - the taste may be more to your liking, if not 100% authentic! Thanks! :-)
