Jerk Chicken with Coconut Rice & Beans...Plus a Giveaway!

This was such a delicious meal! The perfect blend of spices really gives this dish it's authentic flavor! And I love that I don't need to go looking for each spice in the store or in my spice cabinet! No measuring either! Every ingredient comes in it's own separate plastic pouch!

 I was easily able to prepare this entire meal with the help of a company called Global Grub! They make these really cool ethnic cooking kits that have all the unique ingredients needed to make such mouth watering recipes as this one! I just needed to add a few easy to find, store bought, ingredients to complete the recipe!

I've made their Red Chili Tamales and recently wrote about that equally delicious meal here! My family is still talking about that yummy dinner!

I was not paid for my blog post about this product. I tried the product, loved it and decided to share my findings here! I will always only write about products that I truly love! Sometimes the vendors of these products are generous enough to supply me with their products for a giveaway to my readers!  


  1. Hi my name is Kimesha Josephs my email address is Ktjosephs@aol.com. I like the fact that the global grub website is easy to navigate and straight to the point. I go to the page and right there on the home screen is what they offer with prices I like that very direct.

  2. I think I can kick my son-in-law's butt in a jerk chicken cook off after looking at The Global Grub blog! Sooo many cool ideas :)

  3. Love Global Grub's kits! The "Red Chili Tamale" kit is calling my name!

  4. I lived in the southwest several years ago and miss this kind of food. Global Grub sounds like they make it easy to enjoy again. Thanks. Can't wait to try it.

  5. What a great giveaway. It's funny I was just watching an episode of foodcourt wars and one of the couples specialized in jerk chicken and coconut rice and I thought it looked good and now you have this giveaway that had the exact thing I wanted to try.
    I like the simplicity of the site. It's easy to use and see what the products are.

  6. The Jerk and Coconut Rice Kit looks really interesting, and the getaway looks fantastic! I'd love to "go" to Jamaica!

  7. I loved the recipes on the site, the comments people left about them, so I know if they are really good or not. I really loved the whole site.


  8. Hello!
    This product has really been intriguing to me since I saw you posting about it earlier. I really think it's awesome concept. A lot of these foods are things that a home cook may shy away from if it's not something they are used to making. These products inspire! After a step by step instruction, I bet I will feel more confident in creating these food items from scratch too!
    Thank you for the opportunity!

Thanks, Lillian for introducing this new concept to us.
