Servings: 5 to 7 servings
Prep Time: 4 hours 10 min
Cook Time: 45 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cup chopped onions
5   cloves garlic
2   habanero peppers
1   (5-pound) chicken, skin on, cut into 10 pieces
1 cup lime juice


Combine all ingredients except the chicken and lime juice in a food processor and puree until pretty smooth. Place the chicken and lime juice in a mixing bowl and pour about half of the jerk sauce over it, tossing the chicken around to coat it well. Place in a container and pour the remaining sauce on top of chicken. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Remove the chicken pieces from the jerk marinade and place them, skin side up, on a rimmed baking sheet or dish. Bake in the oven for 45 to 55 minutes until cooked through and the juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
