No time to make it to the Caribbean? We’ve got you protected. Keto Jerk Chicken receives its sweetness from cinnamon and allspice and its spiciness from jalapeño and a whole bunch of inexperienced onions. Two hours of marinating in this unique combo make for a perfect chunk of soft grilled chook.
Juice of 1 lime
Vegetable oil, for grill
- In a blender, combine green onions, garlic, jalapeño, lime juice, oil, brown sugar, allspice, thyme, cinnamon, 1 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons water and blend until smooth. Set aside 1⁄4 cup.
- Place chicken in a shallow dish and season with salt. Pour remaining marinade over chicken; toss to coat. Let marinate in the fridge, turning once or twice, at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
- When ready to grill, heat grill to medium-high and oil grates. Grill chicken, turning occasionally until chicken is charred in spots, about 10 minutes.
- Move chicken to a cooler part of the grill and brush with reserved marinade. Grill, covered, until chicken is cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes more.
