"This is one of my nephew's favorite grilled recipes. Jerk means Jamaican barbecue. This well rounded flavor of sweet, hot, herbal and spicy chicken can be served with rice, beans or pasta. Or just make a chicken sandwich out of it! I also add garlic and a kiwi to the marinade."

Wow!! Awesome! If I could only quote my husband and my guests...."unbelievable", "awesome", "sooo tender", "great kick to it", etc. I marinated boneless breasts for about 6 hours. I did make...
