Jerk Chicken, Grilled or Roasted

Grilling jerk chicken is the typical preparation. However, you can also roast it. If you do, be sure to add the marinade to the pan, as it creates a delicious gravy to soak up with bread or rice.

Jerk Chicken (serves 8):

  • 6 lb chicken parts
  • 3 green onions
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 2-4 chiles habanero
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp allspice
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Grind any spices, then blend with all ingredients except chicken. Marinate chicken in mixture for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. Grill or roast until cooked through, basting if desired with the marinade.
