Man oh man, these grilled Jamaican jerk chicken sandwiches disappeared fast. I used my preferred chicken meat, thighs, instead of breasts, but you can certainly use white meat instead. I would recommend butterflying the breasts or just cutting them thin (and to a consistent thickness so they cook evenly). No matter what you use, these sandwiches are nicely spiced, crazy tender and perfectly moist. I wouldn’t change a thing about them.

Any Good Jerk Marinade Will Do

I used some The Shizzle jerk marinade. It is my favorite. They also make a hot version that I love (it is called Voodoo Hot for a reason!). Their marinade is what makes these grilled Jamaican jerk chicken sandwiches soooo good. Any good store-bought jerk marinade will work just fine in this recipe. You could make your own too, of course!
