2lb of Oxtail
1 can of butter beans
5 cups of water
1/2 a scotch bonnet pepper
½ cup of carrots
4 cloves of garlic
4 sprigs of fresh thyme
2 teaspoon of Seasoned’s Ox Tail Seasoning
2 teaspoons of Seasoned’s All-Purpose seasoning
1 tsp allspice seasoning
2 ¼ lb. Chicken
4 oz Seasond’s Curry Spice Mix: HOT or MILD
2 Tsp. Seasoned’s All Purpose seasoning
2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 sprg. Thyme
2 Garlic Cloves
2 oz Cooking Oil
½ oz. Vinegar
4 oz Water
1 Potato (cut in small pieces)

JAMAICAN Jerk Chicken
3 ½ tbsp. Seasoned’s All Purpose seasoning
4 tbsp. Seasoned’s Jamaican Jerk seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
2 teaspoons ground scotch bonnet peppers (habanero) or cayenne pepper- handle with care
1⁄3 cup sugar
3 lbs chicken (pieces, wings, halves, whatever you prefer)
1 juiced lime
1⁄4 cup olive oil
Whisk together lime juice and olive oil.
Rub chicken well with lime/oil mix. Do not marinate.
Combine all other seasonings and ingredients in a bowl
Coat chicken with dry seasoning/spice mixture. The idea here is to get as much as possible to stick to the chicken.
Refrigerate 1-3 hours, then remove from refrigerator and allow to come to near room temperature.
Prepare grill for direct/indirect grilling.
Grill chicken over hot direct fire. Don't worry about the black, it's supposed to be there. In fact, 30-40% of the skin should end up black, but it will not be bitter.
Once seared, remove to the indirect heat area of the grill and cook to 165* internal temperature.
Serve with plenty of napkins.

Season plain bread crumbs and cayenne in the third tin. Coat fish in flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs.
