Sharing is caring!

So, Mr. Bejelly has this thing with too much spice.  Even my beloved Indian Food walks the line of tolerable for him so I never know if any recipe with more than two spices is going to fly.

He tore this Simple Jerk Chicken up. Seriously, I went from wandering what we were going to do with leftovers to hoping I would get enough to eat.

It’s made with 7 spices like cinnamon, cumin, cloves and more.
