Chicken, Sugar Reef Style Jerk


Jerk chicken is the pride of Jamaica and it the most requested dish on the Sugar Reef menu. When prepared properly, it is a stunning, mouth watering dish that is hard to forget. This recipe is not as hot as you would find in Jamaica. For that authentic flavor, double the quantity of dry spices.
