Jerk BBQ Chicken and Roast Potatoes



It was a Sunday evening and I wanted to do a Jamaican like roast dinner. I used Levi Roots Reggae Reggae Jerk BBQ sauce, which tastes absolutely amazing on the chicken. In addition, I created a jerk seasoning gravy as well since I am a gravy person. If you love making gravy from scratch cornflour is a must. With the potatoes I used my Badin seasoning and herbs, which added a new dimension to the flavour The only problem was that I didn‘t have any veg that day. Maybe next time.
