  1. WOW! You really outdid yourself with this post. It is truly impressive! I love jerk chicken but never thought to make it in a slow cooker. It’s the perfect family meal, everyone can have it the way they like it!

  2. This is absolutely amazing! I too love using the slow cooker in the Fall and Winter season and now I have some awesome new recipes to add.

  3. I’m loving the ramen bowl idea too. My husband does not like slow cooker jerk chicken, he says. It not authentic but yet I don’t see him not eating it when it’s done.

    P.S. It’s “Ratchet”

    1. Bwaahahaha @ Idon’t se him not eating it. I mean he has a point but unless he plans on doing the work … you can fill in the rest.

      Thanks for the clarification on “Ratchet” … these are things we need to know.
