You won't regret this jerk chicken recipe if you like your jerk rub a little
less spicy than normal. This homemade jerk marinade is to die for!

So here's how to make Jerk Chicken tacos!

First off, I just wanna say that this is NOT the Jamaican way of making jerk chicken. I wanted a somewhat less spicy version of this, so this is what happened! :)

So here's the recipe.. throw all of this in a mixer:

1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon dried garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/3 teaspoon chilli pepper flakes
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Mix together.

Put your chicken in a bag - I used 12 chicken fillets, 6 in each bag.

Put half of the rub in one bag, half in the other. Seal up and shake/rub so that the chicken is coated with the rub.

Refrigerate and marinate for 4 hours or more.

WHen ready, bake at 350 for 25 minutes, then broil for 10 to get nice and crispy.

Put in a taco and top with all your favourite toppings! In this video, i used, tomatoes, avocados, green onions, lettuce, sour cream and a sriracha mayo.
