Recipe Ingredients for Jerk Chicken

1 teaspoon onion
3 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons low salt soy sauce
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons chopped thyme
1 teaspoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 habanero pepper, sliced
16 oz skinless boneless chicken breast

Recipe Directions for Jerk Chicken

  1. Combine the onion, brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, thyme, sesame oil, garlic, allspice and habanero pepper in the container of a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Place the chicken into a large resealable bag, and pour in 3/4 of the sauce. Squeeze out excess air, and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

  2. Preheat your oven's broiler.

  3. Remove chicken from bag, and discard marinade. Broil chicken for 10 to 15 minutes, turning once to ensure even cooking. Heat remaining sauce in a small pan, and pour over chicken when serving.

  4. Or, you could simply crock pot the whole mess, which is what I did.
