Epicurean Kentuckian: Jerk Chicken

2014-05-28 - Photo by Pen. Jamaican style jerk chicken is great on the grill when the weather turns hot. A good jerk relies heavily on allspice, scallions, and hot peppers, with garlic and sometimes fresh ginger and lots of other spices. Here the chicken is served with greens, kidney beans and rice. Red Stripe is the traditional favorite beverage to accompany, but a hipster-local Kolsch was all we had handy.
