I’ve always wondered about all the different chicken seasonings that exist out there, and one of the ones I’ve always been intrigued about, yet a little bit intimidated by, was jerk chicken. It seems weird that I would be intimidated by this given that my Indian and Middle Eastern spice collection would very likely cover a lot of spices needed for jerk chicken, but I’d always shied away from it. A colleague actually made her family’s version of jerk chicken for culture day yesterday, and she told me how simple her spice blend was — only about 6-8 ingredients, plus some fresh peppers, and that was it. Other than the specific chili pepper she mentioned, I pretty much had all of the spices already. Now, I need to add this to my list of things to make (and potentially film and add to my food channel, and call her out!).
