Traditional spicy Jamaican / Caribbean jerk chicken
Top-ranked recipe named "Jerk Chicken"
1. Place all ingredients, excluding chicken and lime juice, in a blender or food processor pulse until smooth.
2. Marinate the chicken in the lime juice and jerk paste for at least 1 hour over night is better
3. After marinating remove chicken from marinade. Place remaining marinade in a saucepan
4. Bring marinade to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 15 mins put aside for basting
Cooking the chicken...
If you have a grill I highly recommend grilling the chicken over a medium high heated grill.
Cook for roughly 1 hour turning and basting occasionally. Chicken is done when juices run clear.
If you must use an oven I highly recommend a heavy cast iron grill preheated in a 350º oven
Cook for roughly 1 hour turning and basting occasionally. I recommend a tiny dash of Liquid Smoke to help add that grilled essence.
Let rest for about 10 - 15 minutes before serving.
BigOven Tip: Easily make this ahead of time! Marinade chicken up to 24 hours in advance.

edoriv 3 years agoUse caution with scotch bonnet peppers they are extremely hot. Do not touch your eyes after handling them. You may use a less hot pepper or use a little cayenne pepper. If you like very hot food feel free to use extra peppers. Prior to serving I personally like a little fresh lime juice over the chicken Traditional side dish is black beans and rice... I will post a recipe for black beans and rice at a later date. Goes well with a nice fresh salad [I posted this recipe.]
