Jamaican Jerk Chicken Salad

Ready in 15 minutes.

Serves 4 people


  • 2 full chicken thighs with legs attached, skin on, bbq or smoked (you can use any parts you want)
  • 5T Mayonaise
  • 3 tablespoons Reggae Spice Company Jamaican Jerk Sweet and Sassy wet Marinade (https://reggaespicecompany.com/)
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika (I like heavy smoked paprika)
  • 2 tablespoons Aleppo Pepper
  • 1 scallion 
  • 1T of Sambal Sauce
  • 4 yellow cheery tomatoes
  • NW Gold Rush BBQ Sauce from (https://bestdamnbbqsauce.com/) for the bread preparation.
  • 1/2 loaf of fresh sourdough bread (or full loaf and double the ingredients and go clucking wild for more pieces of scintillating chicken salad!)


  • Shred your chicken and chop to a medium course consitency. No large pieces.
  • Place your chicken in a bowl.
  • Add in your mayonaise and Jamaican Jerk Wet Marinade.
  • Mix really well until all chicken is coated with the wet incredients. You can add more mayonaise if you like a really creamy chicken salad and more marinade to your taste.
  • Add the Aleppo Pepper and smoked paparika and mix thoroughly.
  • Cut yoursourdough bread into 1/4 inch think pieces and set aside on a clean cutting board.
  • Take your NW Gold Rush bbq sauce and spread over the pieces. You don't need a lot, maybe 3/4T per slice and spread it from edge to edge. 
  • Place about 1/4C of chicken salad on each piece and use your judgement as to how much you want to use.
  • Cut your scallion greens at a 45 degree angle  (use the part about 1 inch up from the white stalk where the green is firmer) You'll need two pieces per serving
  • Cut your cherry tomatoes in 4 thin slices (you'll need a sharp knive and be very careful not to cut your fingers!)
  • Place the scallions on both sides of the cherry tomatoes as you see in the photo
  • Place a drop of Sambal sauce on the tip of each scallion
  • Dust lightly with more smoked paparika
  • Plate it up and serve your guests or just sit down and indulge!


The Sweet and Sassy Jerk Wet Marinade is concentrated so start out adding what is listed and if you want even more intense jerk flavor, add 1/2T at a time.

SMOKE ON BABY! This is the #ScintillationState
