Jammin' Baked Jerk Chicken Recipe Has Maximum Flavor

Jerk is a cooking style native to Jamaica where meat, usually chicken, is marinated in a dry or wet jerk spice mixture. The mixture of spices in the marinade create an intensely flavored chicken that's moist and hard to stop eating. This easy baked jerk chicken recipe starts with a homemade wet jerk marinade. It's a delicious, flavorful dinner

Green onions, garlic, fresh ginger, a scotch bonnet pepper (just one!), vegetable oil, fresh lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, black pepper, allspice, cinnamon and salt are blitzed in a blender until smooth to create the marinade. Bone-in chicken pieces are marinated in the intensely flavored mixture for two to four hours, then it is baked in the oven for about 1 hour or until cooked through. So easy!
