Caribbean Jerk Chicken

This is the recipe from the back of our 2.0 oz bag of Caribbean Oil Blend. We wanted to give people the idea that they can use it for more than just bread dipping!

Here’s what ya need:

2 Tbsp Caribbean Oil Blend

2 Tbsp brown sugar

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup vinegar

juice of 1 lime

scotch bonnet pepper, optional

1 1/2 lb chicken, cut into small pieces

To make marinade combine Caribbean Oil Blend, brown sugar, olive oil, vinegar, juice of 1 lime and scotch bonnet if desired.

Place chicken in a resealable bag, add marinade, squeeze out any bubbles and seal. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

Cook on a hot grill or skillet until juices run clear.

P.S. You can also use this blend to make a killer Bloody Mary:

The Bloody Mary is what you make it.

Maybe its spicy, maybe its even spicier.

Maybe it has a celery stick, maybe it doesn’t.

Maybe it has a little garnish, maybe it has a lot.

Maybe the garnish is all olives, maybe its just every pickled item you could find in your fridge.

The possibilities of the Bloody Mary are endless, you just have to listen to your heart.

Here’s how we make ours:

5 oz V8 juice

1 tsp Caribbean Oil Blend (or Roasted Cajun, or Smoky Cajun, or really any blend with a little kick)

2 oz vodka

Pour vodka into a pint glass over ice. Mix spices into the V8 juice and pour into glass.

And that’s it. But it doesn’t have to be. If you really want to bring your bloody to a whole new level rim the glass before you start pouring things in. We like to do this with bbq sauce (we use Southern Comfort BBQ Grilling Sauce, find it at the Summerville and Mt. Pleasant farmers markets) and smoked salt (we usually use Yakima Salt):

And let’s not forget about garnish! This is your chance to get wild:

Or this is your chance to eat the veggies you’ve been practicing your pickling skills on:

The most important thing is to make a drink that inspires you, that you can dream about later, and that you want to drink.

As always, enjoy!
