Jerk Chicken Recipe

When my husband and I were in Antigua we ate a lot of jerk chicken (and I mean a lot-- we were at an all inclusive resort that allowed fifteen lunches if you could throw 'em down), because the jerk chicken is seriously amazing in that country.

I had a craving, so I decided to try to replicate the recipe...

In Antigua, they grill the meat, yet it still falls off the bone. I'm not that handy while working over charcoal, so I whipped out the crock pot instead.

Here's what you're going to need:

1 lb of chicken thighs and whole legs (we used skinless/boneless)
1 can diced tomatoes with celery, peppers, and onions
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp dry jerk seasoning
1 tbsp paprika

I mixed it up and cooked in the crock pot for about 3 hours on high. I meant to put it on low for an entire workday, but forgot to take it out of the fridge before leaving for work (doh). I'm sure either way will work.

After the meat is mostly cooked, I stuck it in the oven @ 375 for about 25 minutes (helped to crisp it up).

We served it with some dirty rice and the result was DELISH. I'm definitely adding it to our regular meal plan rotation.

Oh my, I'm going to have to try this...maybe even this weekend! We got married and honeymooned in Jamaica and their jerk chicken is delish too! We were also at an all-inclusive resort and that's all my husband ate the entire time. I think he may have even eaten it for breakfast - HA! What kind of dry jerk seasoning do you recommend? They all taste different, don't they?

That sounds delish!! And I totally plan out our meals too. It's the first thing I do before make a grocery list...how else do you know what to buy!? I don't keep a stocked enough kitchen to just "wing it"

You could also add a table spoon of Graces jerk marinade to the crockpot or even better marinate your chicken the day before in jerk marinade it if you like a little more heat and flavour. Grace or Walkers Wood are good brands with lots of flavour.
