There isn’t a lot that beats the flavour of char grilled jerk chicken. Please do it justice and make sure you cook these over charcoal on a BBQ for maximum flavour!

Serves: 4

  • 8 Herb Fed chicken drumsticks

  • 2 scotch bonnets, roughly chopped

  • 1” piece of ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

  • 5 spring onions, white & green bits, roughly chopped

  • 7 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

  • 1 onion, roughly chopped

  • Juice of 3 limes, zest of 1 lime

  • 60ml dark soy sauce

  • Add all marinade ingredients to a blender and blend to a paste

  • Using a sharp knife, make incisions in the drumsticks

  • Pour half the marinade over the chicken and rub in thoroughly

  • Marinade overnight if possible but preferably at least an hour

  • Set up your BBQ with 2 zones – a direct heat zone and an indirect zone. You want it set to 220c. If cooking in an oven, set your oven to 220c

  • Cook on the indirect side with the lid down for 30 minutes

  • After 30 minutes, start to brush on the reserved marinade, flipping and brushing on every 5 minutes

  • Once the chicken hits an internal temperature of 75c, move them to the direct side of the BBQ

  • Cook with the lid down for 1 minute then flip the drumsticks and cook with the lid down for another minute
