Restaurant-Quality Jamaican Jerk Chicken Recipe Is Delicious Baked or Grilled

My husband loves Jamaican jerk chicken. It’s one of his all-time favorite chicken recipes. With bold, aromatic spices, what's not to love?

I finally found a jerk chicken recipe that rivals what he’s enjoyed at restaurants! The best part is that it’s delicious both in the oven or on the grill.

Cuisine: Jamaican
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes (oven) and 8 minutes (grill) 
Total Time: 35 minutes for oven and 18 minutes for grill 
Servings: 4


Here's how to make it in the oven:

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine marinade ingredients. Pour some of the marinade into an 8x8-inch baking dish, enough to cover the bottom of the dish. Arrange the chicken, then pour the remaining marinade on top.
  2. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for 25 minutes, flipping halfway. Be sure that your chicken has reached 165 degrees F using a food thermometer. Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving. 

Here's how to make it on the grill: 

  1. Grease the grill and heat to medium-high heat (450 degrees F).
  2. Shake off any excess marinade and place the chicken over direct heat. Grill chicken with the lid down for roughly 8 minutes, flipping every 2 minutes or until the chicken reaches 155 degrees F. Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes, covered, then serve.
