On a level of 1-10, with 10 being the spiciest, I would say that this jerk chicken is a 7 or 8. But don't let that scare you away if you don't like a lot of spice. There are a couple of different ways that you can make jerk chicken less spicy!
Combine all marinade ingredients in a Ziploc bag and mix thoroughly. Add the chicken and coat thoroughly. Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours, ensuring the chicken is coated at all times. The longer the chicken marinates, the more intense the flavor will be. The alcohol and lime juice should "preserve" the chicken.When ready to grill, remove from bag and pat dry. Let the chicken return to room temperature (about 10 minutes) while the grill is heating. Grill skin side down for about 5 minutes, then turn over, lower the heat, and grill until done.
You can use 1/4 cup store-bought mojito instead of mixing your own rum, lime juice, mint leaves, and sugar. There is no guarantee that it will contain Jamaican rum, but any bottled mojito that uses light rum will work.The chicken will caramelize due to the sugar.
If you are a fan of jerk chicken then I am really excited to introduce you to this flavorful jerk chicken bowl! It combines the beautiful, tropical flavors of my favorite caribbean jerk chicken with creamy coconut rice, black beans and a fresh and tangy pineapple salsa.
Add a few scoops of your creamy coconut rice to the base of a shallow bowl and add a few pieces of caribbean jerk chicken. If you roasted bone in chicken, pull the meat off of the bone before adding it to the bowl and if you used boneless, chop the chicken into bite sized pieces.
Freshly squeezed lime juice is the only thing this jerk chicken rice bowl needs, so add a few wedges, give them a squeeze and enjoy all of the beautifully bold flavors that this bowl is bursting with.
The Mango Lime Slaw is so simple yet so crazy delicious! Mango, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and mayo are blended up then tossed with slaw mix. It is bright, tangy and pairs so well with the sweet and spicy chicken. It makes for the perfect bite!
A marinade combining a beautiful spice blend with garlic, ginger, lime juice, brown sugar and scotch bonnet chilies creates a sweet, tangy, spicy chicken that everyone will love. Everything is blended up in just a few minutes and the chicken bakes to perfection requiring no babysitting. If you are looking for ways to kick up your chicken dinner game then this is definitely it.
Caribbean jerk chicken is great on its own or shredded over a salad or with some steamed veggies, but if you want to pair with some more authentic side dishes then I would highly suggest my creamy coconut rice, black beans and pineapple salsa. All of these flavors together create a fabulous plate that is sweet, tangy, tart, spicy and delicious.
Chicken marinades are an absolute staple in my recipe routine and in my freezer! From honey garlic to cilantro lime to this shortcut Jamaican jerk chicken marinade, there are so many ways you can get creative with simple ingredients.
If you love the bold flavors of Caribbean food, then this recipe is for you! The first time I had jerk chicken I was hooked and wiped my plate clean. Jerk chicken seasoning is based on chili peppers and Jamaican allspice, which is one of the most important spices used in the Caribbean. The preparation is easy with just a few simple steps and some marinating.This dish is full of robust flavor and warm spices, complimented by a fragrant coconut rice and beans. I recommend black beans for the rice, but pinto beans work as well. Try to marinate the chicken at least for three hours and preferably overnight. As for the spice level, for a mild to medium heat, use jalapeño chilis. If you want it hot and spicy, use habanero chilis or the traditional Scotch bonnet peppers.
Finely chop scallions, 8 cloves of garlic and 2 de-seeded peppers, then add to a large bowl. Into the same bowl, stir in brown sugar, spices, dried thyme, soy sauce, oil, juice of one lime, and a splash of Jamaican rum (optional). Add the chicken pieces and toss together until fully coated in the marinade mixture. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate the chicken in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight. When ready to cook, heat oven to 350°F and bake chicken for 45-55 minutes.
This recipe is full of flavor! The chicken comes out really tender. I used boneless breasts and marinated them for 3 hours. Cooked the chicken for 45 minutes covered, turning once. Instead of white rice, I used yellow saffron rice for a colorful food look. Substitute 3/4 cup coconut milk for that much of the water the rice bag calls for. If you like spice rice, make it with the spicy yellow saffron rice package or a combo of both rice types. Serve with mango slices or pineapple salsa. The mango really enhances the flavors of the chicken and rice.
Jerk chicken is a Caribbean dish that is most often associated with Jamaica. It is meat, usually chicken but could be lamb, goat, or pork as well, that is marinated and sometimes dry rubbed in a spicy, slightly sweet mixture and then grilled. The result is chicken that is smokey, slightly sweet, a bit sour, and savory that finishes with a kick of heat from the chili peppers. It is delicious.
Pour the jerk marinade over the chicken in the zip bag. Close the bag tightly and gently massage the bag to ensure all the chicken thighs are coated in marinade. Refrigerate for 3 to 48 hours. (The longer the marinade time, the more complex and spicy the chicken will taste.)
Jerk Chicken is supposed to be extremely spicy and flavorful. If you are worried about the heat level, use 2-3 habaneros, then shake the marinade off the pieces of chicken as you set them on the grill. Marinading for less time will also lessen the spice level.
This all has to do with the jerk marinade made with habanero peppers. If you simply use fewer habaneros and marinate the chicken for less time, your chicken will be less spicy. Shaking off a bit of the marinade also helps reduce the heat.
Very delicious! I grilled chicken and cooked coconut rice in one pot cooker. Sauté veggies and added a little a the marinade. Then put cooked coconut rice and veggies together to stream together. Add grilled chicken to the pan. Green onions and lime squeeze on top to finish. Family loved it!!!
Jerk is a Jamaican barbecue, and sometimes called Jamaica's national dish. The word "Jerk" is both a dish and a cooking method. It refers to meat, usually chicken, marinated in lime, spices and hot peppers, then cooked on a barbecue grill or fire pit. In Jamaica, jerk chicken, or pork, is everywhere from roadside stands to the finest restaurants from one end of the island to the other.
You can serve a simple, cooling salad with this chicken, or you can make the whole meal Jamaican, and serve it with Coconut Red Beans & Rice like I did here. Plenty of lime wedges and a frosty beverage, along with napkins are also requirements.
The ingredients used to make this Jamaican Jerk Chicken are hot sauce, scallions, garlic, fresh lime juice, allspice, cinnamon, brown sugar, thyme, salt and pepper, and a little oil. The combination of spices brings warmth, smokiness, and spiciness to the chicken. Allspice is reminiscent of warm cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and is widely used in Caribbean and Latin American cooking.
Wow! This is such a great summertime recipe. The chicken is definitely the star of the show, so flavorful and delicious. It also comes together quickly. I served as suggested with mango, pineapple, black beans, red bell pepper, rice, and lime and was impressed with how delicious, easy, and healthy this recipe is. I'm planning to make it again soon!
