Is Jamaican jerk chicken spicy?

It is spicy, but only to the point where it infuses your mouth and tastebuds with flavours if it is cooked correctly.

If it is cooked in a way where it burns your mouth, it’s not been seasoned or cooked correctly.

Instead, the spiciness of the jerk marinade should trigger an emotional experiences as you are discovering the different flavours that you are eating with the chicken.

Additionally, jerk chicken is usually served with other sides like rice, yam, sweet potato, and dumplings which reduce the spiciness by combining the flavours with the side dish that you are eating.

If you do find that the jerk chicken that you are eating is too spicy, add water to it or reduce the amount of jerk that you add to the mix before cooking it.
