Like Father Like Son

It’s obvious that this father and son duo cannot agree on a football team. Michael is a dedicated Seahawks fan, and Daniel is a loyal Cowboys fan. However Daniel and Michael share the same love for food. Daniel was very pleased with his son for introducing him to the seafood entrée’s at the Mastro’s Ocean Club for the very first time, which was a pleasurable event for Michael as well since he enjoys succulent seafood just like his dad. Now the two have decided to present one of their favorite grilling recipes, Caribbean Grilled jerk Chicken.

  • 4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 chicken thighs or if you have large family 16 chicken thighs double the seasonings.

Serving Amount.

If you have a large family 4 pounds of chicken thighs should do. Daniel & Michael decided to grill chicken thighs with the bone in. You may use boneless thighs which holds in the flavor. Or Chicken breast which usually takes more seasoning. Or chicken wings which was introduce to us by our good friend Darrin who enjoys making Jerk chicken wings.
