Craving a new spicy dish, I set out to make slow cooker Jerk chicken. Have you ever made your own Jerk Chicken from scratch? Being a first for me, (and not wanting to start with a mystery seasoning pouch), I needed to do a little research.
Of course Jerk is hot, but did you know that the main ingredient other than the Scotch bonnet peppers is allspice? A surprise to me, since I associate allspice with sweet dishes, not savoury.
