"A vacation from the normal sandwich. Jerk seasoning slow cooks with chicken."

Serves 6 | Prep Time 5 minutes | Cook Time 6-8 hours

Why I Love This Recipe

Top it on a toasted bun. Drizzle with spicy sauce then pickled red onion and jalapenos.

Ingredients You'll Need

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 crock pot 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!
