Slow Cooker Jerk Chicken

Slow Cooker Jerk Chicken

While on my island theme junket I decided to head over to the Atlantic with this slow cooker jerk chicken. School time is all about using my slow cooker and this was an easy and tasty recipe.  When it is done cooking serve this dish with a healthy green salad to balance out the sweetness of the jerk style cooking.
