How to make Jerk sauce is a good thing to know. Why? Because it tastes bloody magic that’s why!

A good Jerk Sauce Recipe should set your taste-buds on fire and leave you salivating for more – enjoy my Jerk chicken marinade recipe.

You’re getting two recipes in one on this blog post, you’re getting my Jerk chicken marinade and my jerk sauce recipe! I’m such a giver… šŸ™‚

Basically, you make the jerk marinade which you can use to marinade jerk chicken, but by simply adding a few more ingredients and cooking the marinade you can transformĀ itĀ into a delicious (and less sharp) sauce.

Make your jerk sauce, pop it in a jar and store in the fridge (you can even freeze some for another day).
