Caribbean Jerk Chicken Recipe

Caribbean Jerk Chicken Recipe

  • 4 chicken leg quarters (8-1/2 ounces each), skin removed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • With a sharp knife, cut leg quarters at the joints if desired. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the remaining ingredients; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
