Step 1: Gather the Ingredients.....
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 Tbs jerk seasoning I used Legion of Spice 'I'm a Jerk'
- 1 cup water
- 'Jerk' Seasoning
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 Tbs molasses
- 1 Tbs spicy brown mustard
- 1 Tbs honey
- 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
- 2 tsp jerk seasoning I used Legion of Spice 'I'm a Jerk'
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 6 hamburger buns
- pickled onion for garnish
- jalapenos for garnish
- 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded split over 6 buns
Step 2: Cooking the Chicken & Making the Sauce....
For the chicken, I just added it to my crock pot with 1 cup of water and 2 Tbs of the 'I'm A Jerk' Seasoning.
Cook for 6-8 hours take it out and shred it. Put it back into the pot to soak up more flavor while the sauce gets made.
Put all the sauce ingredients in a pot and set it to simmer over a low/medium heat for 10-15 minutes to thicken it up.
Step 3: Put It All Together....
Toast the buns. Butter them and put them in the oven for 8-10 minutes on a baking sheet. Taking them out remove the heels from the pan and flip the lids over. Sprinkle shredded cheese and put them into the oven to melt for another 2-4 minutes.
To assemble remove the meat from the crock pot and place on top of the bun. Drizzle some 'Jerk' Sauce on top. Add some pickled red onions and jalapenos. Enjoy!
