Jamaican Jerk Chicken Burger  is my recipe of the day  with the blogging group Eat the World. We  post monthly with  recipes for different countries, changing each  month.

This month  we are off to the Caribbean and Jamaica.  So if the darkening  autumn skies get you  down, take a vacay  in your  kitchen.

I decided on  doing a jerk chicken  burger with my homemade sauce and chicken patties. In the summer I might grill these outdoors but I opted for the grill pan on the stove top.

You can make these mild or spicy. My husband and I are a bit of chile heads so like it flaming hot with scotch bonnet. But I also  cooked for  my daughter, who does  not  eat spicy,  so left it out of the sauce.  I took mine mild as well to see how it was, while Bill  hosed  his with hot sauce.

The flavor was great with the pineapple  slices.  I love those on  burgers. It  might also be  interesting with sliced mango as well if you prefer. Probably not very  authentic  but we like these with French Fries. You can  even use extra sauce to dip instead of ketchup.
