This was great for us, and what I remember from authentic jerk seasoning from Jamaica. As noted I only used half the blended spice in the marinade and it was just right. Wow, we loved the thighs, and I did a quick much less spicy marinade for the big portabella mushrooms I also grilled. They were to die for!

You're dinners always sound delicious CG, and tonight sounds great once again!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Thanks, Kayelle! More often than not, I'd like to show up at your home to mooch a meal from you. I'd bring wine! Too bad you're almost 3000 miles away...

I made a pretty good Indian dinner yesterday. I had a jar of Patak's butter chicken sauce so I diced onions, bell peppers, an old tomato and a large chicken breast and sautéed them, then simmered in the sauce.

It was pretty bland, so I added a variety of seasonings - granulated onion and garlic, cumin seeds and garam masala.

I also made rice pilaf with garam masala and cumin seeds toasted in butter before adding the rice and chicken stock.

And I had bought some naan bread. I made garlic oil and brushed it on them, then sprinkled them with garden parsley and toasted them in the oven. Good stuff.
