Jerk Chicken

Jerk chicken is a flavorful and spicy dish that originated in Jamaica. The dish has a rich history and is now enjoyed worldwide. Let's take a closer look at the history, recipe, ingredients, and where you can try this delicious dish in Bangkok.

Jerk chicken is believed to have originated with the Taino people of Jamaica. They used a cooking technique called "barbacoa," which involved cooking meat over an open flame. This technique was later adopted by African slaves who added their own blend of spices and seasonings to create the dish we now know as jerk chicken.

To make authentic jerk chicken, you will need the following ingredients:

- 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
- 1 tablespoon ground allspice
- 1 tablespoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Scotch bonnet pepper, seeded and minced
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons vinegar
- Juice of 1 lime

Mix all the dry ingredients together, then stir in the oil, onion, garlic, and pepper. Rub the mixture all over the chicken and let it marinate for at least two hours (overnight is best). Grill the chicken over a medium-high flame until it is cooked through.

Many of the main ingredients for jerk chicken can be found in Bangkok, such as chicken, thyme, garlic, and soy sauce. However, some of the more unique and exotic ingredients like Scotch bonnet peppers and pimento wood might be harder to find. But don't worry, at Frying Pan Jerk Grill, we import all the necessary ingredients from Jamaica to ensure an authentic and flavorful dish.
