About this Recipe

Jerke Spice is a delicious way to transform any chicken dinner. Native to Jamaica, this spice is made up of cinnamon, cumin, all spice, smoked paprika and red pepper flakes. This aromatic combination can give you a metabolic boost from the heat and hemp stabilize your blood sugar. The tart sweet bite of pomegranates in the cauliflower rice help counter the heat of the chicken.
