Jerk Chicken

Friday my co worker brought some jerk chicken for us to try. Now, I am a native Jamaican so "yuh betta come correct mon," if you say you jerking some chicken. I was shocked it was so good! I gave her the recipe from my other site "Timetoeatmon" and she not only surpassed the taste test, I am trying to market her..lol

One of the main ingredients being the "allspice berries." (pimento). The combination with the nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices really bring out the flavor in the meat.
