Slow Cooker Jerk Chicken

Slow Cooker Jerk Chicken
Never had Jerk Chicken? Well, you’re in for a treat. ‘Jerk’ is just a style of seasoning that hails from Jamaica, but with our easy slow cooker recipe, there’s no need to travel all the way there to have it. The seasoning is traditionally either used as a dry rub or a wet marinade and is usually based on Scotch bonnet peppers and a fair bit of allspice. While we’ve subbed in red pepper flakes for the Scotch bonnet since it’s easier to find around here, our crockpot version still maintains the flavor of that delectable spicy sauce and makes for a crowd-pleasing meal any night of the week.
