Paleo Jerk Chicken

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Wash and pat each chicken breast dry.
  2. In a food processor or blender, add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl or Ziploc bag, pour the marinade over the chicken breasts – turning each one to make sure it is coated. Let the chicken marinade for a minimum of 4 hours, maximum of 12.
  4. Before cooking, remove the chicken from the marinade and set carefully on a plate or sheet – at this time, you can spoon more marinade over the chicken to form a thick crust or leave it as-is.
  5. Oven: lay each chicken breast on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet (making sure they don’t touch) and bake at 350 F for 35 minutes. [Optional: if you want them to have a blackened color, remove the chicken after the 35 minutes and turn on the broiler. Bake the chicken under the broiler for an additional 6-10 minutes, or until they’re browned/blackened to your liking.]
  6. Grill: grill over medium/hot heat for 25-35 minutes, or until cooked completely through.
