Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Updated on December 26, 2010

Jamaican Jerk Chicken (spicy-Hot-Delicious)

If you can't travel to Jamaica you can bring the flavor to you by having this treat, you'll love the heat and the flavor of this fiery jerk chicken.

There a quite a number of recipes for jerk chicken seasoning but there are a few ingredients that is a must: all spice (pimento), scotch bonnett pepper & thyme. You can make your own seasoning or you can buy the Jerk Seasoning at your local grocery or West Indian store.


*8 skinless chickenless breast halves

* 1 lime

* 3 onion chopped

* 3 stark of escellion

* 2 teaspoon dried thyme

* 2 teaspoon ground all spice

* 1 teaspoon cinnamon

* 1 teaspoon dried pepper

* 1 teaspoon special jerk powder (optional)

* 1 teaspoon nutmeg

* 2 teaspoon ground ginger

* 4 garlic cloves, chopped

* 1/2 cup soy sauce

* 3 scotch bonnett

* 2 tablespoon oil

* 1/2 cup rum

Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix on high.


Place chicken in a large bowl and rub with salt and lime. Coat with jerk sauce and marinate for four hours or left overnight to get a better flavor.

Preheat barbeque grill or use oven set at 375 degrees, turn often to optimize cooking.

Remember there is no hard and fast rule to the ingredients you use, just make sure to use the three main ingredients which are scotch bonnett pepper, thyme and of course pimento (all spice). You can make it as hot as you want or not . I personally do not like it too hot and spicy so work with whatever works for you and do enjoy.
