Faintly sweet, spiced, and fiery as all get-out, jerk chicken is a sultry summertime treat. To maximize its flavor, take time to marinate the meat—for at least a day and up to two.
Although I rarely seed and devein peppers, in the case of ultra-hot habeneros, it's wise. It allows their fruitiness to shine, and the dish strikes a balance between tongue-singeing and enjoyably edible. Of course, if brow-mopping is what you're going for, feel free to add another pepper into the mix.
