The Ultimate Oven Jerk Chicken.

oven jerk chicken (7)

A bit of a bold statement and I’m sure my Jamaican friends are scratching their heads pondering why this “Trini” making such bold claims. One taste of this succulent jerk chicken after it comes out of the oven and you’ll know why it’s an “Ultimate” dish. Following on the other “Ultimate” recipes I’ve shared in the past, this one will not disappoint (search “Ultimate” on the right side of the page to see the other recipes in this category).

Yes, traditional jerk is made on the grill with pimento wood as it’s base of flavor and while you can’t duplicate this in the oven, this one is very convenient for people who don’t have a grill or live in northern climates and have to deal with bitter cold winters. Personally a little snow and minus degree temperatures can’t keep me away from my grill, but lately I’ve found that I don’t brave the outdoors as much as I used to in the winter.

NOTE: For the marinade for this you’ll need to refer to:  A Classic Jamaican Jerk Marinade.

You’ll Need…

6 chicken legs (with back attached) about 4-5 lbs
1 lemon or lime (or 1/4 cup vinegar)
1 cup Jerk Marinade

Tip: Line your baking dish with aluminum foil to make the clean-up after easier.

Trim off the excess skin and fat off the chicken (but leave most of the skin – you can remove it later before eating), then pour the lime or lemon juice (or vinegar) over the trimmed chicken. Then rinse off with cool water and drain. Now take a pairing knife or fork and pierce the chicken pieces. This will allow the marinade to penetrate the meat and really “juice” it up. Now you’re set for marinating the chicken. In a zip lock bag or bowl with a lid, pour the jerk marinade and mix everything well. Now seal and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. I used a large baking dish, which I sealed with plastic wrap. This way when I’m ready, it can go directly into the oven.

After 2 hours take it out of the fridge and pour everything (including all the marinade) into a baking dish and let it come up to room temperature while you oven heats up. I had mine marinating in the baking dish already, so I was good to go.

Preheat your oven at 375 degrees.

Place the baking dish with the chicken on the middle rack and allow this to cook for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. The chicken should be cooked after that, so if you want to add some rich colour to the finished dish, you may need to turn on your broiler for a few minutes.

If you want you can place some aluminum foil over the dish the first 30 minutes of cooking, but I find that leaving it exposed (open) works great. While this cooks in the oven your home will be blanketed with the lovely scent of rich Caribbean spices and herbs and you’ll be counting down the minutes until you can devour a succulent piece of the Ultimate Oven Jerk Chicken. Here I have it served with some rice and creamy coleslaw. BTW, the sort of sweet and creamy flavours of the coleslaw complements this jerk chicken wonderfully.

    For me, jerk chicken has to have scotch bonnet peppers. I can’t find them where I live, so I use scotch bonnet pepper sauce instead. It adds that authentic flavor.

    Can you use a jerk rub combined with jerk marinade or one or the other? I never cooked jerk chicken before so I went to the market and bought marinade and rub.

    Made this jerk chicken today. It was DELICIOUS! I am not going to lie.. I used 5 orange habaneros in place of the 2 Scotch Bonnets.. They are hard to get here. I marinated for 8 hours on the first batch and it is great. I took a bite and nothing but flavor… 20 seconds later.. here comes the heat. This is going in my cookbook. Thanks!

    I tried the Trinidian jerk chicken last Sunday, never cook jerk anything before and this recipe was so easy and the taste was delicious. My son even took some to his friends. I give this a perfect 10.

    Bonjour de Montréal !

    Thank you for your site full of excellent recipes. I miss so much Glen’s cooking and parties (a friend from Trinidad). He taught me a few Trinidadian recipes years and years ago, but I wanted to learn more, so thank you so much for all the very detailed explanations and pictures, I will try a few very soon. Au plaisir ! 🙂

    Oh my, this recipe is awesome, and my son-in-law said it was even better the next day. The Marinade was delectable. I could not find scotch bonnets so I used habaneros. I was afraid to use 2 of them, so I used only 1, wished I had used both.
    Thanks for sharing the recipes!

    I made this tonight and it was amazing. Thank you so much for publishing your recipe! It was eight million times better than the stuff from a jar. I couldn’t find scotch bonnets in my market so I used a mix of bird chillies and serano pepper and jalapenos and it was great.

    Just made this, and it was delicious! Question, the chicken ended up, being completely drenched in the bubbling marinade and it’s own juices, after about an hour, almost like it became braised. Is that what we are going after here? Was I supposed to drain the pan the chicken was cooking in, after an hour, or, is it supposed to cook wet like that? Anyway, loved it, and really enjoyed learning how to make the marinade homemade. Thanks!

    I have got to say i am truly impressed, I watched your grilled jerk ckn video first, I am amazed at your passion and thoroughness. I was overjoyed when I saw the oven version becsuse unfortunately I live in the city and dont own a grill. I can’t wait to try this recipe! And I will be back with the outcome. I do wonder though, do i have to use the baking dish? Because I have seen others just use the racks in the oven, will the out come vary?

    So easy to make. Enjoyed making your jerk marinade as well…so fresh and smelled so good! Didn’t have exact peppers so used habaneros and small piece of sweet red pepper. Smells so good cooking in oven…Can’t wait to taste it!

I’ve used it for over a year now and my family absolutely love it. I use a lot more gravy when cooking cos my family love gravy. Just personal preference however!

    July 19, 2014 / 3:06 pm

    Wow……what can I say? I have tried jerk chicken before making it without a BBQ and it just never tasted the same from the oven nor did it go crispy and yet I used your marinade and even though my fan oven only went to 295 I put it on for 50mins and then put the grill on for the last 10mins and it was amazing I will definitely use this recipe again and the friends I cooked for really enjoyed it!

    Can you use boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of bone-in skin-on?

    • Ian
      April 4, 2014 / 5:33 pm

      I’ve tried it both with chicken thighs and boneless skinless chicken thighs. I’m my opinion the boneless chicken thighs are more like the chicken u get at a Jamaican restaurant. I love both, but will most likely continue with the boneless skinless chicken. I was thinking as well of breading the boneless skinless chicken and making some kind of jerk burger with this recipe. I’ll let u know how it goes.

    This is from a story about cooking jerk chicken over a charcoal pit. The question I have is what is the use for corrugated metal ?

    “They cook the food directly on 8-foot lengths of green pimento wood—with a charcoal fire 3 feet below. The food is covered with corrugated metal—the sort of thing you see on roofs—and the pork and chicken are marinated overnight with a mixture of Scotch bonnet peppers, pimento seeds, oil, and other spices. It’s spicy but not too smoky—a very clean, not sweet, flavor. “

  43. Kristina
    March 19, 2014 / 1:03 pm

    I just finished cooking this recipe and the chicken came out perfect! The meat fell right off the bone and the flavor…outstanding. Making the marinade from scratch makes a huge difference rather than buying it in a bottle. Not to mention the house smelled so good when I finished. I know there’s a lot of people I’m going to impress with this jerk chicken 😉

    This recipe is one I’m definitely keeping in my books. Thanks for sharing!

    I'm making jerk chicken for the fourth time now and I keep coming back to this page to remember the temp to set the oven at and so this time I'm finally leaving a comment so I guess I'd have to say this advice was seriously helpful. I cook in an electric oven that doesn't even have a broiler but I've found that doing the cover the chicken for the first 30 minutes then cooking uncovered for the remaining 50 minutes makes it come out perfect. Thanks for sharing and cheers.

    Love jerk chicken! there is a hole in the wall Caribbean cafe in Orlando that has scrumtous jerk chicken. Of course he won’t give me his recipe. I have been trying to duplicate the taste with various ingredients, come close but still not the same. I love to cook and eat the stuff I cook too, and my wife is glad to let me, even though she is a wonderful cook. Can hardly wait to try this one out, meanwhile I have prepared a pork roast dinner and have some oven jerk chicken cooking too!

    Happy Easter to you!!! My wife had to work the week-end but dinner will be ready when she gets home at 7:30.

    Thanks for sharing.

    why do you need to put lemon on the chicken only to rinse it off? will it make any difference if i don't do that part, seems a waste of a lemon, even if lemons grow on trees!

    • Julia
      August 6, 2013 / 11:32 am

      The lemon is used to wash/clean the chicken, meat, fish…,it eliminates some of the freshness as well. I always saw my mom doing this and I now follow the same practice. It's a common practice of folks from the Caribbean.

    I finally found you. I followed the recipe to a T except I had to substitute habernaros for scotch bonnets and I used chicken thighs. It turned out incredible. I think its key to use fresh Thyme. This is going to be my “go to” recipe for spring BBQs.

    January 28, 2013 / 12:32 pm

    Turned out really nice. We haven’t got any carribean restaurants here in my part of Guatemala and I really missed Jerk Chicken. The sauce recipe turned out really nice. I had to substitue jalapeños for habaneros, but I’ll do it again soon with the scotch bonnets and a bit more nutmeg than the recipe calls for.

    Hi caribbeanpot , i understand this recipe but i am abit confused on the part where you say '' then pour the lime or lemon juice (or vinegar) over the trimmed chicken. Then rinse off with cool water and drain. '' do you mean i must pour the lime and lemon or vinegar on the chicken then rinse it off the chicken afterwards because i didnt quite get why you need to wash it off when you just put it on. Or do you mean wash the lemon and lime. sorry to ask a silly question , just didnt understand thanks! Nicole

    Not sure it it's the same method, but for those inquiring about the 'yellow rice'. I just use Chicken stock with white rice. (parboiled or Basmati). Knorr/Oxo the powder stuff in the yellow box.

  84. April 29, 2012 / 3:47 am

    The chicken's been marinating in this stuff for hours! I love all of your recipes because they contain ingredients that (with a little searching) can be found right here in Spain! I've got my French friend hooked on geera chicken and my German friend hooked on stewed chicken.

    April 6, 2012 / 11:11 am

    God bless you sah! I have made this recipe and the coleslaw several times and it is always the BOOM! My fussy eaters can't get enough of it and ask for it EVERY week! I can't seem to find the yellow rice recipe on this site though (hint, hint!). Keep up the great work!

    Hi! I am not very much aquainted with caribbean cuisine, but I’ve heard so much good about it, I will have to try it, possibly starting with this oven jerk chicken. But I was wondering, if there is a section of Caribbean Cuisine where you use caviar and make something special with it, maybe combining it with meat or only vegetables? I buy caviar at and I ran out of ways to eat it, but it is so good for special events, I want to wow my friends with a more exotic caviar recipe on our next dinner party.

      I think caviar is a tad unusual to the Jamaican culture, Flora.
      One might consider where the country is, and while there are fish everywhere, the world's caviar is consumed in countries outside of the Caribbean typically. However, that is a rather 'out there' idea…..given that your question was some time ago, what kind of results did you get and what was the result?? Jerk caviar…..who'd a thunk??

    Mmmmh, I made oven jerk chicken last night and it turned out real good. The long marinating does the trick. After 30 min baking I have sprinkled a couple spoons of beer over the meat. Thanks. Greets from Switzerland.

    Thank you for the great info, having a get together this weekend and wanted to do jerk chicken, but it is going to be quite cold outside to do it on the drum. Your information has been so informative, thank you so much. I will repost and let you know how it turned out.

    Hey Chris, while you were a yard (looks like you had a great time, with lots of great food!) hubby was home to Jamaica (from Cayman) along with his uncles (yardies that live in US) – I made the Ultimate Jerk Chicken – and got the "Ultimate" compliment – who a show you? They LOVED it and requested it over and again…and asked me to print out the recipe to take home with them. Thanks for helping this Canadian cook like a yardie!!!!

    Chris, Love this recipe.
    I have been making a similar jerk Chicken in the oven, which as a few of my friends including a couple of "yardies" says, it's "to die for". While the traditional jerk is made on the grill with pimento wood as it’s base of flavor which you can’t duplicate in the oven, I found a liquid smoke product which only comes in two smoke flavors, Figaro Hickory Liquid Smoke and Figaro Mesquite Liquid Smoke which can be ordered online at (… ) While it might not be pimento, it adds a very nice smoke flavor to the dish when added to the marinate.
