A cousin of one of the club members created this recipe after sampling jerk-flavored foods in Haiti and Jamaica.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together first 4 ingredients. Arrange chicken pieces, skin sides down, in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with seasoned salt mixture. Squeeze juice from lime over chicken. Spread jerk seasoning on both sides of chicken. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill 8 to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

Step 2

Light one side of grill, heating to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat; leave other side unlit. Arrange chicken over unlit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 170°. Garnish, if desired.

Step 3

*1 (8-oz.) bottle liquid Jamaican jerk marinade may be substituted.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Walkerswood Traditional Jamaican Jerk Seasoning.

This was delicious with just the right amount of heat. Just as delicious (and maybe a little spicier) when reheated.
