Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Looking for taste, then try the terrific flavors of jerk seasoning on tender chicken.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
  2. Combine all ingredients except chicken in large bowl. Rub seasoning over chicken and marinate in refrigerator for 6 hours or longer.
  3. Evenly space chicken on nonstick or lightly greased baking pan.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for an added 30–40 minutes or until the meat can be easily pulled away from the bone with a fork.

Well I am getting back on the south beach seriously, because it is the only diet that REALLY works! (next week)But, Last night I tried this recipe on a whole chicken and put it in my counter top rotissori and oh my gosh it was delishious, Loved it! But like I said I am not fully on the SB diet this week, so not sure how it would be w/o sugar.

substitute apple cider vinegar where vinegar is called for. No black pepper..sub sea salt for the salt... omit the brown sugar...maybe add a little of the stevia??
