Posted by

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 (2 to 3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preparation:

  1. Make the jerk rub by combining the salt, allspice, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic, nutmeg, pepper, ginger, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and thyme.
  2. Toss the chicken pieces with the spice mixture, then cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 2 to 4 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pour the vegetable oil into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  4. Place the chicken pieces skin-side up into the baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour 20 minutes, until no longer pink near the bone.
  5. Turn the oven on to broil, and cook until the skin crisps, 2 to 5 minutes.
