Jerk Marinade

Yield Makes enough for 2 lbs. chicken
This marinade is perfect for chicken. Marinate 1 day, covered and chilled.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 Scotch bonnet chiles* or habaneros, seeded and minced
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. Pulse all ingredients in a food processor into a loose paste. Put chicken in a 9- by 13-in. nonreactive baking dish and slather with mixture all over and under the skin.

  2. *Scotch bonnets, which are similar to habaneros, are extremely hot. We advise wearing rubber gloves when preparing either of them.
