Restaurant Quality Jamaican Jerk Chicken Recipe is Delicious Baked or Grilled | Poultry

My husband loves Jamaican jerk chicken. It’s one of her all-time favorite chicken recipes. With bold, aromatic spices, what’s not to love?

I finally found a jerk chicken recipe that rivals what it tastes at the restaurant! The best part is that it’s delicious in the oven or on the grill.

Cuisine: Jamaican

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes (oven) and 8 minutes (grill)
Total time: 35 minutes for the oven and 18 minutes for the grill
Servings: 4


Here’s how to do it in the oven:

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the marinade ingredients. Pour some of the marinade into an 8 x 8 inch baking dish, enough to cover the bottom of the dish. Arrange the chicken, then pour the rest of the marinade over it.
  2. Bake in preheated 425 degree F oven for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through. Make sure your chicken has reached 165 degrees F using a food thermometer. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Here’s how to do it on the grill:

  1. Grease grill and heat over medium-high heat (450 degrees F).
  2. Shake off any excess marinade and place the chicken over direct heat. Grill chicken with lid closed for about 8 minutes, turning every 2 minutes or until chicken reaches 155 degrees F. Let chicken rest for 5 minutes, covered, then serve.
