Grilled Jamaican Jerk Wings with sauce

Nor A.M


This is a tasty wing recipe with a kick. You can use the marinade for boneless breast tenders, and chicken Kabob's as well. This is my version of a recipe that I tweaked. It has been changed quite a lot to my liking. Serve along with the cool cucumber dip, It is fabulous! Why go out when you can Enjoy the flavors of the Caribbean at home? Enjoy all!
