Nicholas from the Law school is sharing his family recipe for Jerk Chicken! His recipe takes 3 days to perfect: Day 1 is for brining, Day 2 is for marinating, and finally it’s time to grill on Day 3! Jerk is a cooking style originiating from the indigenous peoples in Jamaica and has morphed and changed throughout time. Many areas and families have their own takes on this style, so here’s Nicholas’s!
