Jerk Chicken

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbs jerk seasoning I used Legion of Spice 'I'm a Jerk'
  • 1 cup water

Jerk Seasoning

  • 1//4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbs molasses
  • 1 Tbs spicy brown mustard
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp jerk seasoning I used Legion of Spice 'I'm a Jerk'
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • pickled onion for garnish
  • jalapenos for garnish
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded split over 6 buns


Jerk Chicken

  • For the chicken, I just added it to my slow cooker with 1 cup of water and 2 Tbs of the 'I'm A Jerk' Seasoning.
  • Cook for 6-8 hours take it out and shred it. Put it back into the pot to soak up more flavor while the sauce gets made.

Jerk Sauce

  • Put all the sauce ingredients in a pot and set it to simmer over a low/medium heat for 10-15 minutes to thicken it up.
  • Toast the buns. Butter them and put them in the oven for 8-10 minutes on a baking sheet. Taking them out remove the heels from the pan and flip the lids over. Sprinkle shredded cheese and put them into the oven to melt for another 2-4 minutes.
  • To assemble remove the meat from the crock pot and place on top of the bun.
  • Drizzle some 'Jerk' Sauce on top. Add some pickled red onions and jalapenos. Enjoy!
