Party Food: Jamaican jerk chicken
Have a satay party - small skewers of marinated meat make perfect finger-food.
Cut your meat into 2.5cm cubes. As party food, 2-3 pieces on the end of each skewer is the perfect amount. As a meal to serve 4-6, you can put more on each skewer and serve with rice and salad. This recipe will benefit from marinating the meat overnight, then skewering and cooking the next day. Use a hot grill and don’t turn them too often, so that you get nice caramelised grill marks on the meat.
