Jerk Marinade

This marinade is perfect for chicken. Marinate 1 day, covered and chilled.


Makes enough for 2 lbs. chicken

Recipe from



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


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.

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