"I like jerk chicken but often don't have all the exotic ingredients. This simplifies the mix by using dry italian dressing. Yummy on the Grill!"
Serving Size: 1 (130 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"You're so right, this was so simple and so so yummy. I used boneless chicken breast tenders. I loved the hint of the cinnamon flavor. This is a recipe I will make again and again. Thanks so much for sharing it."
"This is a HUGE hit around the household. Can guarantee everyone will be at the table for this one! We use boneless chicken breasts marinated in this overnight... and then combine it with a cucumber dipping sauce. YUMMY!!!"
"One of my favorites. I have made it many times and sometimes I make it exactly as the recipe sometimes I am more casual on measuring. They turned out to be perfect everytime."
"It is not much work to get some ground allspice to substitute for the salad dressing. The foundation of jerk is allspice and scotch bonnet peppers of which this recipe has neither. I'm sure the recipe is tasty as per the reviews but it really is inaccurate to call it jerk, sorry, don't mean to be a...jerk."
"Cooked this last weekend. Used bonless skinless thighs. Everyone loved it. My hubby loved it so much he asked me to make it this Labor day weekend.
I did double the recipe and I frooze it in the marinade."
"Very tasty dish and very simple to make, which makes it perfect for adding some variety to a quick workday dinner.
Some reviews here note that this is not "jerk" and some think the cinnamon too strong. For my family, we are not jerk snops and the cinnamon makes it taste tropical, so we just love it.
Will certainly look for a true jerk recipe, but will be using this one again at home and for entertaining.
"Excellent recipe!!! I used chicken tenders for the sake of shaving off marinating time (1-1/2 to 2 hrs.), and they turned out beautifully. Served them to my 8 & 4 yr. olds, as well as the neighbors' family, and received rave reviewes. Chicken was pared with a simple romaine salad (cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots & radish), tossed with Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. Today, I thinly sliced the chicken left-overs (originally made 2 batches - all but 3 pieces were left), and served them on top of salad for lunch. Will try with pork chops next, w/ grilled pineapple slices. Thanks for sharing this quick, flavorful, and most excellent recipe! In the box of family favorites :)"
"A big hit at our house especially with the kids (5 & 2yo). We will be keeping this one for sure."
"These are very tasty. I didn't know what to expect from the cinnamon, but it is a great compliment to the chicken. It does not get much more simple than this."
"This is DELICIOUS! I used 2 tablespoons of Recipe #63812 and chicken breast tenders. I marinated for about an hour, and then poured all the chicken and marinade into a skillet and cooked over medium-high heat until they were cooked through and most of the liquid was evaporated. They were so tasty and incredibly moist! Thanks!"
"So simple, so good. Glad I came across this recipe!"
"This chicken had wonderful flavor. It was so quick and easy to fix. DH just loved it. Thanks for posting."
"Hands down- this is the BEST chicken marinade for the grill EVER!! The one adaptation which has been huely popular in our house is the fact that I strip the skin off the chicken prior to grilling. The chicken grills so well with the marinade that it becomes the "new skin" on the chicken and is a lot healthier for my family to eat!! Thanks for posting"
"i wanted to try Jerk chicken for a while now but all the recipe's were so complex your recipe was easy and really yummy thanks for sharing"
"Seeing so many positive reviews, I expected this to be a hit. Unfortunately, my family hated this. My stepdaughter gave it "negative 12 stars" on a scale of 1 to 5. The chicken tasted far too strongly of cinnamon, strange combination of seasonings and had a bad aftertaste. I will not be making this again."
"This was EXCELLENT, easy, and WW pp-friendly! Winning combo! 11 YO DD said it was just a little too sweet for her taste, so I might decrease the brown sugar to 1 1/2 T next time. DH and I thought it was perfect as is!
As written, it's 4 ppv/serving for 1 1/2 lb chicken. If you use 2 lb chicken for 6 servings, it's 5 ppv. Still not bad for ALL THIS flavor!"
"This was a taste bud explosion! Wow and loved the smells! Grill was out of gas so had to do in the oven and was very good! Can't wait to try on the grill. Nice to have a versatile recipe. Thanks for sharing."
"This is a good and simple chicken recipe, but it cannot truly be called "Caribbean Jerk Chicken" because it is missing about 10 different seasoning that truly make it "jerk". Without that seasoning, this is simply tasty spicy chicken that tastes nothing like jerk chicken. It is good nonetheless, just wanted to let anyone seeking authentic jerk chicken know that this is not going to taste like jerk chicken."
"This was so easy and really good. I used boneless chicken breasts and let them sit in the marinade for 6 hours before grilling. I don't like cinnamon and was a little nervous about that, but it just gave the chicken a hint of sweetness...delicious!"
