Jerk Chicken Burritos

Jerk Chicken Burritos

A traditional jerk seasoning is a dry rub that's often used in grilling. It consists of several spices, such as allspice, cloves, chiles, and thyme. This jerk-style chicken is seasoned with a bottled marinade, omitting the hassle of preparing your own jerk-seasoning blend.
