How to Make Jerk Chicken - Cassies Way


  1. Make the jerk rub by mixing all the spices.
  2. Toss the chicken pieces with the spice mixture, then cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 2 to 4 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Pour the vegetable oil into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  4. Place the chicken pieces skin side up into the baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour 20 minutes, until no longer pink near the bone.
  6. Turn the oven on to broil, and cook until the skin crisps, 2 to 5 minutes. ( I used skinless breasts, so I took the thighs with skin and placed on top).
  7. This makes a fabulous juice you could dip the chicken into...
