Recipe by Avery

From the Tabasco website - it was so good I thought it deserved wider circulation

Not the traditional thick coat of seasoning I expected from jerk chicken, but good flavor none-the-less. I served this sliced over carbonera-butter pasta with corn-on-the-cob and it made a good spring dinner. I did have to add a little oil to the herb/Tabasco sauce marinade to give it enough fluidity to marinate. I also substituted real butter instead of fake butter but the fake butter I think would have worked better. Go figure.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix onion, thyme, sugar, salt, nutmeg and tabasco sauce in a small bowl.
  2. Remove fat from chicken and stab a couple of times with a fork.
  3. Spoon or rub seasoning mixture over both sides of each breast half and let it marinate for 20 minutes (it's still pretty good without marinating).
  4. Heat butter and oil in large skillet over medium heat.
  5. When bubbling, add chicken and cook for 5 to 10 minutes on each side (depending on size of chicken breasts) until brown and cooked through.
