Jerk Chicken With A Twist

A great Jamaican style dish. A spicy blend of herbs, vinegar, and a scotch bonnet pepper make this chicken dish unforgettable. Serve with rice, yum!

Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Ready In: 1 hour 15 Minutes

Servings: 4


1 teaspoon onion, finely chopped

3 tablespoons brown sugar

4 tablespoons soy sauce

4 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

1 teaspoon sesame oil

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1 scotch bonnet pepper, sliced

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch strips


1. Combine the onion, brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, thyme, sesame oil, garlic, allspice and scotch bonnet pepper in the container of a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Place the chicken into a large resealable bag, and pour in 3/4 of the sauce. Squeeze out excess air, and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

2. Preheat your oven's broiler.

3. Remove chicken from bag, and discard marinade. Broil chicken for 10 to 15 minutes, turning once to ensure even cooking. Heat remaining sauce in a small pan, and pour over chicken when serving.
