Jerk Chicken

Jerk Chicken

Yum! I’ve used this recipe a few times (all with diff mods of course) and it’s been fantastic. Super easy, the key is to keep it marinating overnight to let the flavour absorb and keep juicy. Here’s . I’ve been replacing the peppers with two dried chili’s (seeds, stems and all) and it’s still not spicy (will have to bump it up for more heat). I used my own all spice mix as well.

Last few times cooking, I’ve baked them at 300 for 1.5-2 hours for 8-12 drumsticks, pulled them out and covered them in aluminum foil, letting the meat rest for about 15-20mins so the juices don’t run out. When we were just about to serve, we crisp them up on the BBQ for a little smoke and crunch on top – fantastic.

For this, I served it with kale chips. Super easy, 1 bunch of kale + 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cut them in 3″x2″ pcs and lay them out on a baking sheet (don’t crowd them). Bake at 350deg F for 10-15mins until crisp. Salt and season (I used cayenne) as you’d like. Ta da!
