Jerk Chicken process step by step –
Step #1. In a food processor, combine the onion, scallions, chiles, garlic, and all of the spices. Process this into a coarse paste. Then, with the machine still on, slowly pour in the soy sauce and vegetable oil. Continue to process until combined.
Step #2. Take the marinade and pour it into a large, shallow baking dish. Place the chicken into the dish. Turn the chicken over several times to event coat all sides. Then, cover and refrigerate overnight.
Step #3. When ready to cook the chicken, take it out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before proceeding.
Step #4. For the most authentic flavor, you will want to grill the chicken. Light the grill, creating a medium-hot fire. You will want to turn the chicken occasionally, until well-browned and cooked completely through. This should take anywhere from 35 to 45 minutes. If you want a smokier flavor, cover the grill in between turning the chicken.
Step #5. If you don’t have a grill, you can bake the chicken in an oven. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/175 degrees Celsius. Pour a little more vegetable oil into the baking pan (about ¼ cup).
Make sure the chicken is arranged skin-side up and then bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. And then, to crisp the skin, turn the broiler on low and cook for 3 more minutes.
