Jerk Chicken

Ingredients to make Jerk Chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 5-6 shallots
  • 2-3 spring onions ( use the whites )
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 3-4 cloves
  • 1 inch cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice powder
  • 1 green chilli (preferably hot)
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • half of a lemon
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • salt to taste

How to make Jerk Chicken

  1. Take all the ingredients ( except chicken ) in a mixer jar. Pulverize to get a fine paste
  2. Clean the chicken and put little cuts in the skin. Rub the spice paste all over the chicken preferably with your hands (wear gloves though).
  3. Pre-heat a oven to 250 degrees (Celcius). Put the chicken on a griller and place it in the middle rack of the oven with both the top and bottom heating elements switched on.
  4. Cook for 20-25 minutes or till it is done. Take care to regulate/lower heat because the marinade tends to burn easily as it contains sugar/honey.
  5. Serve hot with some lettuce, sliced carrots and blanched tender beans.
