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).

A bit too bland, I’m afraid. Bit boring.

Great tasting meal, but needed something fresh to cut through the creaminess of the rice. Not fiery enough for us, either, but that is our personal taste.

Using half cans of beans and coconut milk is a bit challenging/concerned re waste. Tasted amazing though.

Do NOT put too much coconut milk in the rice! It will become rice pudding... still delicious but not a great texture!
