    Jerk Chicken

    I know it doesn't look pretty but here's the chicken marinading in the jerk marinade. I'm going to let it marinade for 2 days. Here is the recipe for the jerk marinade that I used:

    4-5 green onions (roughly chop)
    1/2 of a onion (cut in quarters)
    3 Habaneros Peppers (Scotch Bonnet Peppers if you can find them)
    4 Garlic Cloves
    Chunk of Ginger
    1 tbsp of Thyme (dry or fresh)
    1 tbsp Peppercorns
    1 tbsp Kosher salt
    1/2 tbsp Cinnamon
    1 tbsp Allsprice
    2 tbsp Brown Sugar
    2-3 tbsp Soy Sauce
    2 tbsp Lime Juice
    2-3 tbsp Olive Oil
    1/4 cup White Vineger

    Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Makes enough for 1 whole chicken. Here I took a whole chicken and cut it in half because I didn't have no Ziplock bags that would hold a whole chicken.Click image for larger version

        Looks great! Jerk chicken is my favorite. America's test kitchen has a great recipe for it and it looks similar to your marinade. They have you throw in a few tablespoons of rosemary thyme and allspice berries into the wood chip packet to give the fragrant smoke of pimento wood.

          That is pretty nifty. I can't stand rosemary (or ginger), but I thoroughly enjoy Thyme and even more so Allspice.

        Looks great! I just discovered some jerk recipes and have been playing with the allspice/scotch bonnet combo. Seriously good eating. This post definitely inspires me to do more of that.

          That jerk chicken is some pretty good stuff. I had to settle with Habaneros peppers because I couldn't find Scotch Bonnet peppers no where around here so i bought some Scotch Bonnet pepper plants.

            Good call. I would say the habaneros are very close to the scotch bonnets, both when comparing (scoville) heat and flavor profile. The scotch bonnets have a bit sweeter flavor, I think.

          Whippin' this up for an Around the World taste test at the school the kiddees attend.

                  DWCowles - those are absolutely fantastic photos! Thank you much for the recipe. My son went to Jamaica to do some scientific diving last summer. Before leaving he promised to go in search of good jerk chicken and a recipe to go along with it. He failed on both accounts. I'm going to tell him now that I don't need his advice!

                    Mr. Bones - he had all sorts of issues with diving permits that had been issued so he didn't get out. So after a frustrating trip I just had to have fun and needle him about his broken vow. He wanted some local cuisine pretty bad and I got the impression he was stuck on his computer with PB&J.

                      The amazing thing is how much the jerk marinade looks like a pile of crap, especially if you plop it down right.
