How to make it

  • Jamaica Jerk Spice:
  • Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
  • Use as a marinade or brush meat with it before a barbecue. It can also be used to baste with during cooking.
  • Caribbean Chicken:
  • To make the marinade, mix the jerk spice with the coconut milk and half of the rum. Then add the chicken and rub the marinade in so that it absorbs the flavors. Set aside for 2 hours.
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees, 20 minutes before the 2 hour marinade time is up.
  • Place the sliced bananas into a baking dish and sprinkle with poppy seeds and cinnamon. Dot the butter on top and pour in the remaining rum Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • When chicken is ready. Pour off the marinade and save for later use.
  • Heat the oil in a wok or skillet and gently fry the marinated chicken pieces for 5-10 minutes, turning so that they are beginning to turn golden on all sides. Remove the chicken and when cool enough, slice the meat into long thin strips.
  • Now, using a wok, heat up some more oil and briskly stir-fry the green and red bell pepper strips, the scallions/spring onions, mushrooms, and chives. Cook for 3-4 minutes and then add the chicken strips, stirring all the time.
  • Next put in the mango slices, melon balls, and the grapes. Mix these in before adding the cashews and coconut flakes. Stir constantly. Pour in the retained marinade and stir it in.
  • At this point, remove the bananas from the oven and stir them and any juice from the baking dish into the wok mixture.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes and then serve, accompanied by rice.
