2 kg chicken, whole, thighs, drumsticks or what you like
100-200 ml JERK MARINADE
5 tbsp. SPICE BLEND OF THE CARIBBEAN
3 lime wedges per person
fresh Thyme or parsley for garnish
Salad (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber)
Black Eyed Peas (optional and recommended)
Preheat smoker or oven to 160 C, or start grill.
Cut chicken into pieces, rub with SPICE BLEND OF THE CARIBBEAN, let rest for 4-5 min.
With a spoon and rubber gloves, rub chicken with the JERK MARINADE generously.
Place in fridge for 2 hours - 2 days (the longer the better)
Place in smoker or oven, or on the grill, and cook until done / 75 C internal temp
This is quite HOT, so serve with rice (and beans) and a fresh salad. Make sure to have lime wedges that you can squeeze over the chicken as you eat to balance the hotness. It's also great with JERK BBQ SAUCE as a dip sauce, straight from the fridge.
The Hot tip:
JERK MARINADE works wonders on almost everything; Goat, Fish, Lamb, Veggies...
If you bake this in the oven, mix the drippings with creme fraiche or similar for a wonderful sauce!
Look out for the recipe for the beans and rice!
