Jerk Chicken Sliders with Pineapple Slaw

I needed a flavor shock in my life. When I think of flavor explosions, I think of Jamaican food. So, today, we’re making Jerk Chicken Sliders with a sweet, tangy pineapple slaw!  I love it! The perfect blend of comparable herbs and spices is just delightful! Jamaicans know flavor!! Of course, I had to make this Coop style. jerk-chicken You know, I’ll use any excuse to eat pineapples! But, coleslaw gets a bad rep. I’m trying to change that with this slaw.pineapple-slaw Watch me make this….
