Ingredients

  • 12 chicken thighs

The super-easy way

  • 1 cup of Mizkan's Jamaican Jerk Sauce

The long way

  • Juice of two limes
  • 4 tsp of ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp of ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp of onion powder
  • 4 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • A pinch of ground allspice
  • 1 tbsp of dry thyme leaves
  • 4 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp of salt

Instructions

The super-easy way

  • Marinade the chicken for an hour in the Mizkan's Jamaican Jerk Sauce.
  • Pre-heat oven to 375 ºC (190 ºC).
  • Place on a baking tray with a wire rack (Amazon affiliate link) skin side up. Cook in the oven for 45 minutes, or until some of the skin has blackened. Remove from the oven.

The long way

  • Mix all the ingredients minus the chicken and stir to form a paste. Rub this paste on the chicken, try to get some under the skin too.
  • Pre-heat oven to 375 ºC (190 ºC).
  • Place on a baking tray with a wire rack (Amazon affiliate link) skin side up. Cook in the oven for 45 minutes, or until some of the skin has blackened. Remove from the oven.

Notes

To cook on the BBQ, just follow the instructions, but instead of cooking in the oven, grill over medium fire until it's cooked completely and the skin is charred (about 13 mins on the skin side, 7 on the other).
This is SPICY! You've been warned, if you don't like food that is very spicy you may have to reduce the cayenne pepper powder.
