Jerk Wings with Rice & Peas Cooking Tips:

Do not skip the part of piercing the chicken, it helps the mariande penetrate the chicken down to the bone.

This is a mild jerk but you can add 2 more scotch bonnets if you love spicy.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: I keep a jar of this jerk paste in my fridge at all times. The paste is good for up to 3 months max.

Reheating: Jerk Wings: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

Rice & Peas: Bring a small amount of stock or coconut milk to a boil and stir in rice and peas, cook until hot. *A 1/4 cup of liquid will be enough for 1 cup.
