Jerk Chicken with Hot Sauce

Here we’ve got a Jamaican favourite of jerk chicken with rice & peas, a salad and a fiery hot pepper sauce flavoured with habanero chilli on the side. It makes a fantastic meal and you could even cook the chicken on the barbecue if the weather’s nice! Allspice is a prominent flavour in Caribbean cooking - it has a lovely scent of nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon, but the name leads many people to believe it’s a blend rather than a single ingredient. In Jamaica, the allspice flavour in jerk would be enhanced by using allspice branches and leaves on the charcoal over which the meat would be cooked.
