This popular Jamaican dish features chicken marinated in a fiery scotch bonnet chilli sauce and smoked in a steel drum and until blackened and crispy We've toned down the heat in ours, but the flavours of allspice, thyme and garlic in the Jerk marinade are still deliciously bold when paired with the obligatory "rice and peas".

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and boil 300ml water in the kettle. Put the chicken thighs in a big bowl and sprinkle the Jerk Seasoning all over. Mix well and then add in the Jerk Paste. Make sure the chicken becomes fully coated in the marinade mixture.

  • 2.

    Place the marinated chicken pieces on a baking tray with the lime wedges (if using) and cook in the oven for 20 mins. Meanwhile, start step 3.

  • 3.

    Heat a little oil in a large, lidded non-stick saucepan over medium-high heat and then add the onion and stir fry for 3 mins to soften. Add the rice and the Chicken Stock pot to the pan and stir well. Pour in the coconut milk, the drained kidney beans and 300ml boiling water to the pan and mix well. Bring to the boil, then cover with a lid, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 10-12 mins.

  • 4.

    When the chicken's cooked through and the rice has absorbed all of the water, fluff up the rice with a fork and serve portions of both with a quarter of a roasted lime to squeeze over everything. Serve some sweetcorn alongside and some creme fraiche, for those who might find it spicy (if having).

Family cooked this when I wasn’t home and declared it’s the the best dish they’ve had in a long time.

Mara - Sep 22, 2018

Lovely but a bit dry I thought there would have been more sauce

Charlotte - Sep 22, 2018

Having tried lots of jamaican food cooked by Jamaicans, this lacks flavour from what I'm used to. It was ok but I'm just used to propper yard food!

Natalie - Sep 20, 2018

Even my very fussy daughter enjoyed this meal

Neil - Sep 17, 2018

Bit bland

Sharron - Sep 17, 2018

Used chicken breasts. Was lovely. Wasn’t as keen on the rice but was ok for a change

Suetying - Sep 16, 2018

This was really tasty and not at all spicy, and I’m really not into spice so recommend putting all the seasoning and paste if you are worried. I would definitely cook again.

Michael - Sep 06, 2018

Was nice but flavour wasn’t strong enough I’m used to jerk chicken being full of flavour and having a kick to it but this was very mild and lacked flavour

Marcel - Sep 05, 2018

This was really great. Personally I’d have liked a bit more spice but I realise this subjective. I’d also recommend marinating the chicken overnight. The rice was also really nice and interesting. I’ll definitely have this again.

Eleanor - Sep 02, 2018

I used salmon rather than chicken and it worked really well.

Tina - Sep 01, 2018

My family loved especially the rice was surprised they don’t normally like rice ????the jerk was very tasty but not spicy ???? hot

Caroline - Aug 29, 2018

Chicken smelt lovely but didn't have quite as much flavour and heat as I would have expected. I didn't mind the rice, didn't love it but most of the rest of the family didn't like it at all.

Michelle - Aug 29, 2018

Delicious recipe will cook again

Sarah - Aug 18, 2018

Easy to cook, tasted amazing

Rachael - Aug 17, 2018

Recipe card different to online with eight etc . Timings slightly off too.

Sarah - Aug 06, 2018

Sharean - Aug 02, 2018

Chicken was nice but dint like the rice

Elaine - Jul 21, 2018

I have eaten this in lots of restaurants, this home made one is definitely up there with the best. Will be ordering again.

Elaine - Jul 21, 2018

Eaten this in lots of places, this is definitely up there with the best.

Sarah - Jul 06, 2018

Needs some thyme in the rice - not as good as my mum's ( though that's a harsh comparison)

Victor - Jul 04, 2018

Really good, especially if stood in the fridge overnight to infuse the flavours. Rice a peas are better than the red kidney beans (personal taste)

Hayley - Jul 04, 2018

Loved everything about this dish. Very tasty, not too spicy with a lot of flavour.

Arnette - Jul 03, 2018

Rice is beautiful

Lauren - Jun 29, 2018

Yummy! Not as spicy as I was expecting...which was a relief for my man! Hahah

Joanne - Jun 27, 2018

Chicken was lovely, rice not so much x

Benjamin John - Jun 13, 2018

Not too hot for my 4 year old. Very crispy skin

Kate - Jun 07, 2018

Nice. Not a very strong 'jerk' flavour like I expected. But nice.
