Jerk Chicken with Tupelo Honey Hot Sauce

Our Tupelo Honey Hot Sauce combines our famous tupelo honey with the fiery, fragrant Jamaican scotch bonnet peppers. Since scotch bonnets are a main ingredient to jerk chicken, we thought why not create a jerk chicken recipe with our Tupelo Honey Hot Sauce. This recipe is easy to make and perfect for the summer, so get outside and get grilling.
