Jerk Chicken - Nomadic Boys

Every traveler should stop by at least at one of the Caribbean islands. Their raw beauty, warmth and rich culture make them ideal for a romantic getaway or adventure seekers. But we think the national cuisine is yummy enough to convince you to book a flight and head over to the Caribbean right now! Here’s 5 Caribbean foods which may just sway you to head on over.

#1 Jerk Chicken

This spicy, hot and delicious meal originates from Jamaica. It consists of 2 parts: the jerk marinade and of course, the chicken. The jerk is made from a mix of spices, including soy, brown sugar, cloves, peppers and jalapenos. The jerk is then placed on the chicken and grilled, producing a really tasty dish. The Jerk Chicken must be cooked over coal or fresh green wood (usually the bark of the pimento tree) in order to give it its unique flavour.
