DJT’s Caribbean Jerk Chicken Recipe

Our little sister was round at our house last week and jerk chicken is pretty much the only thing she’ll let me cook her.

We hadn’t had it for a good while and it reminded me of just how much we love it, and how cost effective it is when you make a batch to either cook and have for dinner and lunch the following day, or just to marinade and stick in the freezer ready for next time.

As you will see from the ingredients below, I make up quite a lot in one batch, if that is too much for you then use less chicken, although I recommend you keep the marinade ingredients the same.

It is packed with flavour so if you are in a rush you can marinade and cook straight away, but for the very best results marinade it for at least four hours, or even overnight.

Final word

It really is as easy as that, perfect for a quick evening meal.

I usually serve with salad and rice, but on this occasion there was stuff that needed using in the fridge so I went with mange tout and baby salad potatoes – not a very West Indian I know!

Slimming Worlders, I used Sainsburys jerk seasoning which is free, so check your app if you’ve picked it up from somewhere else or speak to your group consultant. 

Oh, and remove the skin!

  1. Looking good! Think I even have some jerk seasoning lurking at the back of the spice cupboard. I do a version of marinaded chicken that we call ‘caveman chicken’, because when the kids were little we encouraged them to pick up the drumsticks in their fingers and eat like cavemen.

    1. Ahhh I love this! My granddad told me that fish in a box wasn’t proper fish and from that moment on I never ate it again and sent my mum daft when she had to gut and bone a fresh one herself every time going forward. She was not very happy with him hahaha.
