Jerk chicken is a popular dish in the United States, especially in cities with large Caribbean populations such as Miami, New York City, and Chicago.

This spicy and flavorful dish is believed to have originated in Jamaica, where it is a staple in the country's cuisine.

Jerk chicken is made by marinating chicken in a mixture of spices and herbs, including allspice, thyme, and Scotch bonnet peppers, which gives it its signature heat. 

4-6 chicken thighs or drumsticks, 1/2 cup jerk seasoning, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 


2 tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, Juice of 1 lime, Salt and pepper, to taste.


Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). In a small bowl, mix together the jerk seasoning, olive oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, salt, and pepper until it forms a paste.


Rub the paste all over the chicken, making sure it's well coated. Place the chicken in a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is crispy.

If you prefer, you can also grill the chicken over medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes per side until cooked through.

Serve the jerk chicken hot with your favorite sides, such as rice and peas, coleslaw, or grilled vegetables.  Enjoy your delicious jerk chicken!
