Slow Jerk

Sheri Zarnick


Slow Cooker recipes are awesome. You put your cooker on, go to work and come home to your supper already done. Love it! Anything in the Slow Cooker is alright by me. So I try to make as many of these dishes as possible. This Jerk Chicken is so good, it just melts in your mouth.
