Jerk Chicken - the most popular dish to be exported from Jamaica features succulent pieces of chicken marinated in a delicious, fiery jerk sauce and grilled until blackened and crispy. Normally an absolute scorcher with scotch bonnet chillies, we've toned down the heat in ours but kept the flavour big with over 21 ingredients alone in our Jerk Seasoning including allspice, thyme, ginger nutmeg and cinnamon. Incomplete without rice and peas, we show you how to create the authentic side to this Caribbean carnival of a dish in the comfort of your own home. No need to marinate for hours on end, we've packed all the flavour into our three little pots.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Prep the chicken

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and boil 150ml water in the kettle. 

    Mix the JERK SEASONING and the JERK PASTE together in a mixing bowl with a drop of oil, then add the chicken thighs and mix well to fully coat. 

    Place the chicken on a baking tray with the lime wedges (if using) and cook in the oven for 20 mins.

  • 2.

    Next, make the rice

    Put 100ml boiling water into a lidded, non-stick saucepan along with the CHICKEN STOCK and mix well.

    Next, stir in the coconut milk.

    Add the rice and the kidney beans to the pan, along with all the juices from the tin. Mix well then gently bring it to the boil, cover with a lid, turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for 15 mins.  After this time, turn the heat off and leave it covered until you're ready to eat.

  • 3.

    3. Finishing touches

    If you're having sweetcorn alongside, you can either toast the sweetcorn in a dry frying pan until lightly charred or just season it with pepper and some olive oil.

  • 4.

    Serve!

    To serve, squeeze the roasted limes over the chicken and serve with your “rice and peas” and some seasoned sweetcorn on the side (if using).

Definitely do the optional toasted corn. Add salt and pepper and a dash of Cajun spice, with some pine nuts.

Anthony - Dec 04, 2019

Coconut rice is delicious

Catherine - Dec 04, 2019

Loved this, soooooo tasty!

James - Dec 03, 2019

Great flavours, but; cook the chicken longer, to get that crispy bbq texture. Use less kidney beans or more rice as proportions/ratio seems wrong. Watch the sweetcorn like a hawk as will ruin in a matter of seconds!

Delicious flavour in the chicken although rice wasnt anywhere near as good as that you get in a caribean restaurant but suspect just need to get the practice. Will definitely be buying again just for the chicken.
