My husband is doing a low carb diet again, so I am always on the lookout for recipes that work well for the whole family. Here is one that fit the bill pretty well, although it is really spicy. I decided to leave a couple pieces out of the marinade and bake them on the side for Orion. I made brown rice to go with mine. It was really good, except I found it to be too salty. I think I will cut it down next time I make it.
Jamaican Jerk Chicken
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon dried ground thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons dried ground sage
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar (xylitol for me as usual)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 scotch bonnet pepper or 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped finely (I didn't actually use these as I didn't have time to get to the store, and it was already plenty spicy, so I think it was fine without!)
1 large onion, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
5 lbs skinless chicken pieces (on the bone)
1. In a large casserole with a lid, combine all ingredients except chicken.
2. Add chicken, stirring to coat well.
3. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour up to 24 hours.
4. Bake@ 350 for one hour OR drain and barbecue.
