Caribbean Jerk Chicken Wings

Caribbean Jerk Chicken Wings

One of the reasons I love to cook is that you can recreate a moment in time.  As an obsessive traveler, I’m always inspired by local food, and I’m always looking to recreate a vacation meal at home.  I’m especially fond of the delicious flavors and eclectic cultures of the Caribbean.  My Caribbean jerk chicken wings are inspired by the distinctive flavors of Jamaica.  Jerk seasoning is a blend of spices and aromatics that gives grilled meats a unique kick, with heavy notes of allspice, garlic, ginger and of course, heat!  The good thing about this recipe is, you can temper the heat to your particular taste.  Make these jerk chicken wings next time you’re craving a trip to the islands.
