Jerk Chicken is a spicy dish that is the most delicious of all chicken dishes. The term jerk means a way of cooking, which can be served with chicken, rice, seafood, and vegetables. However, the chicken is well coated in all the spices and cooked on fire or grill. So this chicken dish started with Taino, who made the jerk method. Then it was made by African slaves in the form of this dish. But jerk is usually derived from Spanish charge, so it means chicken strips.

Some important tips:

If you want good taste, make it a habit to use fresh ingredients. However, in this recipe, I have used all the fresh ingredients myself, so that this dish of chicken becomes better and tastier.

Also, if you want to marinate, do it for a longer period of time. Because by doing so, all the spices in the chicken will be well mixed. I would recommend you to marinate the chicken for 3 to 4 hours. Then turn the chicken over and over and marinate all the spices well.

But when you are grilling, the method of cooking it is somewhat different. So be careful while cooking it. When you cook this dish on the grill, take care of the temperature so that the chicken does not burn.
