Jerk chicken is one of my absolute favourite meals to make. It goes down a treat in my household, especially with teens and kids. It is finger licking good and pays homage to the Caribbean cooking I've grown up with.



Preparation Time: Overnight
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Makes: 4 kid servings

Ingredients
Handful of rosemary
Handful of basil
Tsp ground mixed spice
Pinch of salt
2 chicken legs
1 red onion
4 garlic cloves
Tsp ground black pepper
3 tblsp coconut oil
2 dried birds eye chillies
Optional sides:
1 cabbage head
2 handfuls of kale



Method
Slice the onion and crush the garlic using the back of a knife.



Wash the chicken and place in a bowl along with the rosemary.



Add the oil, remaining seasoning and garlic and onion and leave to marinate in the fridge for 8 hours or overnight.



Add the oil to a hot frying pan and remove any onion or garlic that has stuck to the chicken, then place the chicken in the pan and turn the heat to a simmer for 10 minutes.



Add the birds-eye chillies and turn the meat over carefully using a spatula/spoon. Cook for a further 20 minutes.



Place the kale and cabbage in a sieve over a saucepan of boiling water. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes.



Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook for 20 minutes over a simmering heat.



Turn the chicken over and add the mixed spice and half a pint of water. Cook for 10 minutes.



The greens should be steamed and slightly wilted.



Remove the vegetables from the sieve and add to a bowl



Once the chicken is cooked, transfer to a bowl.



Let everyone tuck in, and watch them lick their fingers and enjoy the greens as well as the jerk chicken.
