Jerk Chicken Recipe

Jerk Chicken is a delicious Jamaican dish of grilled chicken infused with a spicy, smoky flavor. If you are craving a taste of the islands, give this recipe a try!

Ingredients List:

Jerk Marinade Bone in chicken Limes Vinegar Red Strip Beer

To clean your chicken using the Jamaican method, run the lime halves over the chicken, using the lime juice to remove any slime on the raw chicken.

Add the chicken into a large, clean bowl. Pour the marinade over the chicken, cover, and place it in the fridge. Allow the chicken to marinate for 2 hours or overnight.

Place the marinated chicken on the hot grill. Open the red stripe beer, and using your finger to block part of the opening, spray the beer on top of the chicken.

Close the lid, and allow the chicken to grill for about 10 minutes. Then flip and spray again with Red Stripe. Continue grilling until the chicken is fully cooked.


Expert Tips:

Instead of a whole jointed chicken you can just use 2 pounds worth of bone-in chicken thighs or legs. I would not recommend boneless skinless chicken breasts for this recipe as the skin provides great flavor.
