Jerk Chicken | best jerk chicken recipe

Lucy Richard

If you want to know how to make jerk chicken the right way, this recipe is for you. The marinade here is key and will ensure you get that sweet, smoky, spicy flavor we love in jerk chicken.

Jerk actually refers to the cooking process of cooking more slowly and over indirect heat using wood chips to achieve that delicious smoky flavor. We highly recommend you do this, but grilling without is fine!

  1. Dry the skin of your chicken and using a knife make small holes all around the chicken.
  2. In a blender, combine all remaining ingredients and blend for three minutes. Pour half of the jerk marinade over the chicken and massage. Refrigerate overnight.
  3. When ready to cook, bring the grill temperature to 165°C. Place the chicken skin side down and close the barbecue lid for 5-7 minutes until it begins to brown. Flip and cook for the remaining 5-7 minutes. Repeat two more times until chicken is dark brown and fully cooked.
  4. Move the chicken to the sides of the grill and brush the remaining jerk sauce on top. Close the lid and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
  5. Remove from the BBQ and let the chicken cool for about 10 minutes. Eat on the bone or cut the meat into small pieces and serve.
