Jamaican Jerk Chicken

How to Make

Terrific marinade! Better than any I've ever purchased or made myself. Other than substituting habaneros for the scotch bonnets, I followed your recipe as written. ... My wife, who is heat-averse but likes jerked food (I know, go figure), really liked how it turned out. Thanks, Mike. ~ Charles Pascual



– For the jerk marinade, add all of the marinade ingredients to a food processor or blender and process until smooth. – Next, poke some wholes in your chicken with a knife to let the marinade permeate deeper.


– Set the chicken into a large bowl. Pour the marinade over the chicken and rub it down. – Cover, refrigerate & marinate the chicken. Discard the marinade when ready.


To grill: Heat a charcoal and oil the grill grates. Grill until the chicken is cooked through.  - To bake: Heat your oven and bake the chicken until it is cooked through.


– Remove from heat and serve.
