This is a good one for Turkey, Fish, pork and Chicken. You may want to double up on this one because it is only 6 servings. This is also for about 1-1/2 lbs of meat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all marinade ingredients in a shallow baking dish (I just use a large ziplock bag for all of my marinating).
  2. Reserve 1/2 cup to be used as a dipping sauce or baste.
  3. Add meat to marinade and refrigerate for 30 minutes to overnight.
  4. Then grill when you are ready.

Oohhh this is so good. The best barbecue! I used chicken legs and thighs, and marinated for about 30 hours. Also used mesquite chips that had soaked in water for lots of smoke.

I've eaten a fair amount of jerk in my time. I've had jerk from roadside jerk joints on the north shore of Jamaica and I've eaten a lot of it in Toronto's jerk joints. There are a lot of Jamaican restaurants in Toronto. So I have a really good idea of what jerk dishes ought to taste like. Unfortunately this recipe, while tasty on its own merits, just doesn't cut it as jerk seasoning; it's way too mild. On a positive note though, I used some of this recipe as a shrip dip which worked out just fine.

I'd never had jerk chicken before and I was pleasantly surprised with the flavour. We ran out of gas for the BBQ so I ended up having to bake the chicken in the oven and the taste was great. This will be a regular dish at our BBQ's from now on.
