Unfortunately, not from scratch. We use a local island concoction of peppers, spices and herbs that we pick up at the farmer's market. We let it marinade overnight in the fridge and then just throw it on the grill.

If I find a substitute that will work at home I'll let you know. I'm interested myself.

ETA: Here's one that looks similar, except that we leave it in the fridge overnight:

Makes 6 servings; jalapenos may be substituted for the scotch bonnet pepper if desired.


3 lbs chicken breasts
salt & pepper
olive oil, for rubbing on chicken
Jerk Spice Rub (use 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup scallions, cut in small pieces
1 small scotch bonnet peppers, chopped finely
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
6 garlic cloves, chopped
1 limes, zest of, grind ( rind) (we skip this)
2 tablespoons sugar (ours has no sugar)
1 tablespoon thyme
1 teaspoon allspice


Combine all ingredients in Food processor and mix thoroughly.
Rub the chicken with oil then sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Next, generously coat chicken with Jerk Spice and grill until done (approx. 45 minutes to an hour).
