It was quite an extra spicy day in my kitchen. You see, I was asked to prepare and cook some chicken wings for a special occasion. Thus, I went to work feverishly. The ingredients were:

  • Chicken wings (approx. 12 lbs)
  • Onions (3 large) {minced in food processor)
  • Garlic (6 cloves) {minced in food processor)
  • Scallion (3 stalks)
  • Black pepper (sprinkle)
  • Salt (1 teaspoon per pound)
  • Paprika (sprinkle)
  • Jerk sauce (mild and hot)
  • Vinegar (a few splash)
  • Dark sugar (1 tablespoon)
  • Ketchup
  • Bell peppers (2 whole) for garnish and sauce
  • Pimento (all spice){1 table-spoon crushed]
  • Canola oil


Salt, black pepper, and paprika were used sparingly bearing in mind that jerk sauce contains a reasonable amount of sodium and other ingredients.

  1. Wings were first cut into two pieces; then were rinsed with fresh squeeze of lime.
  2. Excess water was removed by draining and drying with paper towel. A drizzle of canola oil was added for jerk sauce and other seasoning to adhere to wings.
  3. Onions, garlic and other ingredients and spices were pulsed in food processor and then added along with store-bought jars of jerk sauce (mild/hot).
  4. Wings were baked in a pre-heated 360 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes turning once.

  5. Wings were brushed with extra jerk sauce and placed under broiler for another 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Extra sauce was served in bell peppers.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
