I made Jamaican Jerk Chicken on Sunday and I have half a breast leftover. Checking out the Jamaican cook book, that Jan brought me back from England, I saw that it had a recipe for Caribbean coleslaw. If I put the chicken together with the coleslaw I could come up with the Jamaican equivalent of a Chinese Chicken salad. Of course, I view a cookbook recipe as a source of ideas and insparation, not a list of ingredients, so my salad is only a nod at the original recipe.

Jan went to England this summer, so of course she brought me back a Jamaican cookbook. I did a Jamaican Jerk Chicken earlier this year, but it turned out much greener and soggier than I really had in mind. The book Jan bought me gave me some ideas for making something closer to what I had originally thought was Jamaican Jerk Chicken.
Jan wants Jamaican Jerk Chicken this weekend. Chris, my son-in-law has also mentioned that this would be a good thing. Since I am still trying to reconcile their diametrically opposed diets I will be leaving out the sugar and cooking some of the chicken skin-off and some skin-on.
