Jerk Chicken Tacos $0.78 per taco

Today is a simple day.  Chicken + tortillas+Caribbean jerk sauce=Jerk Chicken Tacos.

Not knowing what I had in my fridge yesterday I spotted a bottle of jerk marinade sitting behind the line up of rarely used condiments.  Rarely, do I find time to marinate my meats properly these days, but I wanted to get back to the simple exploitation of full flavored marinated meals.

Yes, marinating does take some pre-planning but not much.  Give yourself a good 20-30 minutes ahead of cooking time and you should be good to go with most meats.

*Here’s a trick that I read in the “4 Hour Chef’. . . if cooking steak at home and you want to get that same steakhouse quality in your t-bone, New York strip, sirloin, etc..place some salt on your steak put it into the freezer for 30-60 minutes before searing it in some butter.  This is the best method I have found so far and it can be used with basically any other meat as well.

Now back to the game plan!  If you hate jerks but love tacos; don’t worry this is still going to be a great recipe for you fine folks.  Most people will have these ingredients on hand and can find this a good start if your new to home cooking.
