baked jerk chicken



1 tbsp allspice
1 tbsp black pepper
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbsp  thyme
4 spring of green onions, chopped (use the white part too)
2 scotch bonnet peppers, finely chopped
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp  soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime or 2 tbsp of lime juice
8 chicken legs - I also used 8 wings
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
1/2 cup of orange juice

1. Put the chicken in a pan , then add everything else to a food processor or blender.  stir in the sugar, salt, soy sauce and lime juice. everything

2. Pour the marinade into a bowl then add the chicken and massage it into the meat, making sure you get it underneath the skin. Cover and leave to marinate for at least 6 hours, or overnight.  I did mine the night before.
3.put it in the oven covered in foil for 45 minutes. then uncover and bake another 30 minutes flip it over first.
or cook it on the grill flipping it every 4-5 minutes cooking for 30 minutes

  2. My mix does not look the same. I added the oil and orange juice. Was I supposed to?
