What is Jerk Chicken?

Jerk chicken is also known as Jamaican jerk chicken because ‘Jerk’ refers to a Jamaican cooking method and the jerk spice mix is used to season and marinate the chicken as a dry rub or wet paste and is typically smoked, roasted, or grilled.

What Part of the Chicken To Use For The Maximum Flavors?

For this kind of recipe, always use dark meat pieces like chicken thighs or drumsticks, the darker the meat, the more will the juiciness and flavor. You can use chicken breast instead but I don’t recommend it because it will dry out very quickly.

How Long To Cook The Chicken?

You should cook the chicken until it is no longer pink and the juices run clear. Always use a meat thermometer to check whether it reads 165 F when inserted into the thickest part of the meat and making sure you don’t hit the bone.
