In Jamaica, you will find little stalls by the side of the road with a barbecue drum filled with their specialty Jerk Chicken or Jerk Pork.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a blender and process until you have a smooth puree.
  2. Add chicken pieces into a large bowl and pour in the marinade. Marinate for 4 - 8 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. I don't have a smoker or barbecue pit, so I used to oven to roast the chicken. It still works out ok.
  4. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  5. Transfer the chicken pieces to a baking sheet and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Bake in the oven "low and slow" until chicken is tender, about 1 hour. Remove the chicken from the baking sheet to a serving platter and garnish with limes and parsley before serving.
