Jerk chicken

Jerk chicken is one of the ultimate favourites in our house. I hope you enjoy!

Jerk Chicken


  • 1 chicken
  • 1 onion
  • 2 table spoons of Jerk seasoning
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Pinch of salt


  • Grate the onion
  • Add all the other ingredients and mix together in to a paste
  • Smear the paste all over the chicken (I do it under the skin)
  • Leave for at least 4 hours or preferably over night
  • Roast 180c for 1hr 30 mins (depending on size of your chicken so always check to make sure the chicken is cooked all the way through
  • I like to serve with sweet potato wedges and salad

It really is as easy as that! I tend to cook everything in  a Halogen cooker these days but it tastes just as good roasted in the oven.

You can also just use chicken pieces too if you don’t want to cook a full chicken, be sure to adjust cooking times.
