I don't know where I go this recipe, but it has a very interesting mix of flavors that come together for great chicken. I usually double the the marinade and set half aside before I marinate the chicken. I cook the marinade I set aside at a low boil until reduced and has a syrupy consistency, stirring often. Baste chicken while it is grilling three or four times. I did not include marinating time in the prep time.

  • Add Onion (1), Tomato (1), Garlic (2 clove), Fresh Ginger (1 teaspoon), Scallion (2 stalk), Fresh Cilantro (3 tablespoon), Scotch Bonnet Pepper (1/4 piece), and leaves from the Fresh Thyme (2 sprig). Mix well and marinate for 2 hours in the fridge, or overnight if possible.
  • In a heavy, high-sided pan, heat Vegetable Oil (2 tablespoon) over medium-high heat. Add Brown Sugar (1 tablespoon) and move it around until it starts to liquify. You’re looking for small bubbles, which will then become a bit frothy, then from light to golden/dark brown.

  • For the chicken, blend the onion in a food processor or blender until smooth. Tip into a shallow dish large enough to hold all the chicken thighs. Add the coriander, cumin, thyme, garlic, parsley, rapeseed oil, chilli, paprika, allspice, soy sauce and nutmeg and stir well.
  • Put the black-eyed beans in a pan with the thyme, onion, bay leaves, rice and coconut milk. Reduce to a low heat and cover, and cook until all the liquid has evaporated and the rice is cooked through and fluffy.
  • Roast the chicken for 25–30 minutes turning at least once. Pour over the honey and turn up the heat to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6 and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until the chicken is browned and completely cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven, carefully pour off the juice into a small pan. Add the rum and reduce by half. Pour in the stock and reduce again until you have a gravy consistency.
  • For the fried plantain, heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer (CAUTION: hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended.) Either shallow fry the plantain until crisp on the outside, or else carefully lower the plantain into the hot oil and deep-fry.

  • Add chicken to a large bowl. Add in 1 tablespoon olive oil and your jerk seasoning: garlic, ginger, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, honey, allspice, cinnamon, dried thyme, cayenne, sea salt and black pepper. Use clean hands to toss the chicken in the mixture.
  • Cover and allow chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 6 hours, or you can skip this completely and begin the cooking process.
  • Next add 1/2 tablespoon olive oil to a large deep 10 inch skillet and place over medium high heat. (If you do not have a skillet a large pot will also work very well!) Once oil is hot, add in chicken and season with a little more salt and pepper. Cook until browned 4-5 minutes, then flip and and cook an additional 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan and transfer to a plate.
  • In the same skillet (it should be greased enough already for sauteing), add green onion, red bell pepper chunks; saute for 1-2 minutes. Then add in coconut milk and rice and stir well to combine. Bring to a simmer then fold in the pineapple, making sure it is evenly distributed. Add browned chicken on top.

  • Jamaican Oxtail. Who would’ve thought oxtail could be so tasty? If you’ve never worked with it before, now is the time to try. It has some extra fat, which produces an even richer flavor stock, and when slow-cooked, some argue it’s more tender than other cuts of beef.
  • Jamaican Steamed Cabbage. Cabbage is an inexpensive side that can be found in most countries. But this colorful variation from Jamaica is definitely one of my faves.
  • Jamaican Hot Pepper Shrimp. This fiery dish is not for the faint of heart. Dicing the peppers means the flavor gets all over the shrimp, so there’s no escaping it.
  • Jamaican Jerk Marinade. I know we all look for shortcuts, but marinating your meat goes a long way in terms of great flavor. You can even make up a big batch and freeze down some meat (once it’s sat in the marinade), making the next meal a little quicker.
  • Jamaican Callaloo. Callaloo is similar to spinach and gets cooked with onion, tomatoes, green onions, and, you guessed it, a Scotch bonnet pepper! Collard greens make a great alternative if you can’t find callaloo.
  • Jerk Chicken. When making jerk chicken, it’s always a good idea to use things and legs with the bone in. The dark meat pairs so much better with the powerful spices, and these cuts are always juicier.
  • Jamaican Curry Chicken. Jamaican curry might look similar to some Asian curries you’re used to, and it uses many of the same ingredients, including coconut milk.
  • Jamaican Carrot Juice. You won’t believe me until you try it, but Jamaican carrot juice is unbelievably delicious. Made with condensed milk and spices (cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg), it’s creamy and can also be made with coconut milk for a nuttier flavor.
  • Rice and Peas. Simple but so effective, this recipe is loaded with flavor and is the perfect pairing for jerk chicken! Though the dish is known as rice and peas, it’s actually made with kidney beans.
  • Jamaican Beef Patties. Much like the empanada or British Cornish pasty, Jamaica has its own version of a beef filled hand pie. Though many of the ingredients are similar to a Cornish pasty – beef, onion, carrot, etc.
