    Lene's Note:

    I like to use chicken on the bone for my jerk chicken and find that if i ask the butcher to cut a whole chicken into quaters, everyone gets to choose the piece that they like best.

    1. 1
      Place the onions, chillies, garlic, ging sler and marjoram in a food processor and blitz until well blended. Add the allspice, cider vinegar, soy sauce and honey and whizz again until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    2. 2
      Deeply slash the chicken then place in a large, shallow dish. Pour over the sauce and chill for 2-3 hours, or overnight.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 200 degrees centigrade. Transfer the chicken to a rack and sit it inside a roasting tin. Pour over the marinade and roast for 40-45 minutes, basting occasionally with the marinating juices in the roasting tin until cooked through and blackened.

      I really enjoyed the dish. The only change I did is I added a red capsicum (for the colour) and a splash of Tabasco pepper sauce (for the heat) as I didn't have scotch bonnet peppers. I used chicken breast and because of the marinate it melted in my mouth as it was so tender. I've given it a 4 star as I felt it needed something more as the vinegar was a little overpowering, maybe an extra tablespoon of honey next time I make it? Thank you Lene
