RatingDifficultyBeginner

My dad was born and raised on the beautiful Caribbean island of Jamaica. Known for its reggae music, beautiful beaches, spiced rum, coffee, Olympic champions, the list goes on – but one thing is for sure, Jamaica is known for Jerk Chicken! My dad makes a smoking jerk chicken so good that it’s earned him the nickname the “King of Jerk”. He passed down his recipe to me, I added a few twists of my own and now they call me... the “Princess of Jerk”! These wings are sweet, spicy, smoky, tangy with citrus, and super saucy. Serve with lots of napkins and a cold beer on the side as a bonus. Yeah mon!
