I give it a 5. Here's the deal! We just finished this recipe for dinner, first time using recipe. It was a lot of work, I swore I would not use it again.....too much work. However, the result was enjoyable not as hot as the real thing we had this week at CPK). We tested the real thing at CPK to see if I wanted to "spring" for the $.79 to buy the recipe. After re-thinking the process, considering that we enjoyed the result, the solution is in preparing most of the components in advance, so it is not such a "fire drill" at the last moment. This is the difference. Make then sauce, cook the chicken, cook the bacon & the peppers in the morning.(Do all the work in the morning).Then put it all together at dinnertime. With a glass of wine & a leisurely process, we did enjoy the result , & will make it again following my own advice.

I made the Jerk Seasoning, and used it on skewered beef, broiled it - it was really good. I made the Caribbean Sauce as a dipping sauce for the beef, and it is really great. I didn't want to have to clean the blender, so I simmered the sauce longer, then strained it through a seive. Both recipes are keepers, and forgiving if you are missing an can get away with a substitution here and there.

Never had the real thing, but this was delicious! Would have never guessed this ingredient list yielded such pleasant tastes! Awesome, will make again even though a little time consuming the first time. Will make chicken and sauce up in large batch to freeze for future use.

Well worth the effort. We will definitely make it again, plus the sauce recipe made enough for more delicious pizza.

I used a blend of Monterey Jack and Mozzarella and used red onion instead of white in the sauce and on the pizza. This is a great recipe. I might add a touch of molasses in the sauce next time.
