Jamaican Jerk Chicken
« on: April 24, 2014, 06:12:58 am »
Hi everyone,

Thought I'd post this as I had it at a friend's place and it was fantastic.  I usually use the jerk paste on it's own on a brined chicken but this one is definitely worth giving a try!

3.5 Tbsp Walkerswood or Grace jerk paste
3 Tbsp cooking oil
2 Tbsp ketchup
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp fresh minced garlic
1 tsp fresh chopped thyme leaves (can use dried, just increase to 1.5)
1 tsp kosher salt, black pepper

Mix all ingredients well
Use chicken thighs, drums, quarters, anything with bone-in and skin on(because it tastes better over the bbq!)
Combine chicken and jerk mix in a ziploc bag, shake well and let it sit for 12-24 hours
BBQ until fully cooked
*If you can find pimento wood, use that on your coals for some smoke.  I cannot get it here so I use cherry woodchips in a pouch to give it some sweet smokey flavour

Serve over Jamaican Rice and Beans (coming up in my next post)

Big fan of jerk pork and chicken. So much so that I've tracked down and grown my own ministry of agriculture Jamaican scotch bonnets.   Haven't had either of the products you mentioned though.
