Jerk Chicken with Rosemary Potatoes & Roasted Cauliflower recipe

Thanks to so many of you out there who have shared the deliciously delectable recipes you've been making using my award-winning, gourmet Caribbean Jerk Sauce Marinades, Caribbean Hot Sauce and Portuguese Repolho Relish. They're so creative, yummy and easy to make.

Today I'd like to share a recipe from my friend, Corinna S., from Stone Ridge, NY. Corinna used my gourmet Caribbean Mild Jerk Sauce to make Caribbean Chicken with Rosemary Potatoes & Roasted Cauliflower. Corinna said that " it was absolutely delicious" and "so quick and easy to make". I'm planning to make this one myself, Corinna! It sounds really yummy!

Corinna marinated chicken thighs overnight in my gourmet, award-winning Mild Caribbean Jerk Sauce Marinade. She then baked these in the oven. For the rosemary potatoes, Corinna used red potatoes. Best to sliced the potatoes in halves or quarters (per your preference) before baking. The roasted cauliflower takes just a few minutes on the grill.

Thanks, Corinna. I'll upload pictures when I make this meal. If you make Corinna's recipe, I hope you'll share your experience and pictures too.

My award-winning gourmet Caribbean Jerk Sauce Marinades, Caribbean Hot Sauce and Portuguese Repolho Relish are now available at more of your favorite local retailers. If your favorite local retailer doesn't carry my gourmet marinades or condiments, let me know. You can also stop by during my next in-store event and try a free sample. Keep those recipes coming! Food helps warm our souls.

As we move into the heart of winter here in the Northeast, here's to roaring fireplaces & succulent food with friends and family while we ride out winter in our caves :)

Caribbean Jerk Chicken crockpot recipe

I've been hearing from so many of you out there about the delicious meals you've made using my award-winning, gourmet Caribbean Jerk Sauce Marinades and Portuguese Repolho Relish and the multitude of ways you're enjoying my Caribbean Hot Sauce. I will start sharing your recipes and experiences here and on my Facebook page.

Use my award-winning, gourmet Caribbean Jerk Sauce Marinades to invigorate your crock pot/slow cooking. That's just what Kim W. did. I met Kim W. at the 2011 Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest. She purchased my gourmet, Caribbean Mild Jerk Sauce Marinade for the first time and a few days later, she emailed me to say:

Your wonderful marinade was absolutely delicious! I took 8 chicken tenderloins and evenly arranged them at the bottom of the slow cooker. Once arranged, I covered them with a layer of the marinade and cooked on low for 3 hours (or until the chicken is thoroughly done). The meat was tender, the flavor was bursting and by the end of the night, it was all gone!!

Thank you, Kim! I'm so glad to know you enjoyed it. Your recipe sounds yummy, I'm looking forward to trying it! Thanks for sharing your recipe and experience.

Would you like to leave a comment or share your experience too? I invite you to post a comment here or on my Facebook page with your recipe and of course include a picture too, if you happen to have one.

You know, now that it's winter here in the Northeast, feels like we spend more time snuggled in our "caves" :) Good food helps warm our souls, so this winter, don't plan on making the same ole thing for gatherings with friends and family. Instead, pick up one of my award-winning, gourmet Caribbean Jerk Sauce Marinades, Caribbean Hot Sauce or Portuguese Repolho Relish and make a delectable international meal tonight!

Here's to being out of the cold with a roaring fire, fine wine and scrumptious food!
