Authentic Jerk Chicken

Jerk is one of the most well know dishes to have travelled out of the Caribbean in recent years. A hot and spicy dish, it lies somewhere between barbecued and smoked meat – once tasted, never forgotten! Lets get cooking…


1 whole chicken, cut in quarters (skin on)

1 lime, cut in half •  tbsp oil

½ tsp salt

2 tbsp Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning or 3 tbsp Walkerswood Jerk Marinade

1 tbsp dark rum (or 2 tbsp regular rum)


Rub the chicken quarters with lime, rinse and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt. In a bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together and add the chicken. Rub mixture in thoroughly and allow to marinate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Preheat the oven to 150°C/300°F or light the barbecue. Grill or roast the chicken slowly until very tender, for about 40 minutes.


Serves 4   Preparation time: minimum 4 hours marination + 50 minutes cooking.
