The first time I saw this seasoning was while I was in Jamaica with my family. My husband saw it right before we left the resort to head back to our cruise ship and grabbed a bottle. I'm so glad he did. The flavour is amazing and it's become a favourite.
This seasoning is made in Jamaica so it's authentic. The bottle is filled with spices which appear very thick - almost like a paste. Even though the bottle tells you how much to use, it wasn't a lot and because it's so thick, it doesn't look like it will coat and season the chicken very well. I decided to put the chicken pieces in a large ziploc bag and just mix the seasoning around as much as I could. It did seem to spread better that way, but I was still unsure if it would be enough to actually flavour all of the chicken well. I put it in the fridge overnight.
I did take it out a couple of times and mix it up. The spices seemed to be spreading and mixing better and really coating the chicken. I was pleasantly surprised. I cooked the chicken in the oven and it turned out fantastic. The entire family loved it. Each piece was seasoned well and the flavour was rich and delicious. I think next time we're going to try it on the BBQ to see how it turns out.
We were pleasantly surprised to learn that we could find this in Canada for under ten dollars. It was about half the price of what we paid in Jamaica, but you can expect that from touristy locations I guess. It's really hit or miss at the grocery store trying to find it. Our local one had it and then it disappeared. At least I know I can always get it on Amazon. It's really become one of our favourite ways to have chicken.
