Jerk Chicken Marinade
Health Highlights


454 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless
1 tsp, leaves Thyme, dried
1 tsp Allspice, ground
2 tbsp unpacked Brown sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tbsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
2 tbsp Lime juice (fresh)


Combine all ingredients in a heavy duty freezer bag. Add chicken breasts and turn to coat in marinade.

Fridge: Marinate the chicken in the fridge for 2-24 hours.

Freezer: If freezing, place in the freezer immediately. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or by immersing the bag in a bowl of cold water for a couple of hours.

To bake:

Heat oven to 425°F. Bake chicken in a shallow baking dish for 10 minutes, flip over, then bake for another 10-20 minutes.

For 5-7 oz chicken breasts, bake for 20 minutes total. For 10 oz and larger chicken breasts, bake for at least 25 minutes.

Allow chicken to rest at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Note: This marinade has a bit of a spicy kick. Feel free to reduce the cayenne for a less spicy version. Serve with mango!
