The Caribbean Jerk Chicken used to be a menu staple on Earl of Sandwich’s menu, but when the menu was revamped last spring, it didn’t make the cut. This was a bummer, because I had it in 2013 and really enjoyed it. Last month, it reappeared as a Limited Time sandwich.
Being a heat-seeker, I had to stop by for the sandwich. It features Grilled Chicken, Roasted Red Peppers, Banana Peppers and Spicy Jerk Sauce. Considering some of the food I eat, this is on the mild side for me.
The sandwich had what I would say is Earl’s standard, which is still a good amount, which virtually each bite getting some chicken in it.
While the jerk sauce had a little bit of heat, the majority of it comes from the banana peppers. If you can handle banana peppers, you can handle this sandwich. The red peppers were a touch sparse compared to last time, but while they add a little sweetness to balance the spice, I didn’t mind there being less. For all I know, the recipe could have been tweaked so that heat was a more prominent note.
Since it’s a Limited Time offering, I’ll make my way back to order another on a future trip to Disney Springs. I might even have to stack it up against the Chipotle Chicken Avocado to see which one is the better option for those who like some heat. I’ll let you know if I do. 😉
