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.
