  • Serving Suggestion

  • 01
    This dish pairs brilliantly with peas, and a sour cream dip, to refresh you from the heat.

Jerk chicken is a classic Jamaican dish that works great on its own or served with rice and peas. Follow Weber’s simple instructions to create a delicious jerk marinade - the perfect preparation for your barbecued chicken thighs. Remember to leave plenty of time for the chicken to marinade - you’ll need 12 to 24 hours before you start cooking.
