This one-pan baked jerk chicken is full of surprises and delights. Seasoned with a mouthwatering Caribbean-style marinade, it’s loaded with flavor. Baked with a generous serving of vegetables, it’s also healthy. And, as a one-pan meal with only seven simple steps to follow, it’s easy and hassle-free.

Making restaurant-quality baked jerk chicken at home simply doesn’t get better than this— unless we could be cheeky and suggest adding Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth to the recipe (which we’ve gone and done).

What Is Jerk Chicken?

Jerk is a style of seasoning that originated in Jamaica. If something is cooked jerk-style, then you can expect it to taste both spicy and sweet.

Jerk spice marinade is made into a paste and gets its deep flavors from thyme, allspice, and some form of hot pepper (such as cayenne, habañero, scotch bonnet, or chili pepper), and a hint of sweetness from brown sugar. Some traditional jerk chicken marinades will also use cinnamon and/or nutmeg.

Jerk marinade pairs perfectly with proteins such as chicken and shrimp, but you can even use jerk seasoning on fruit and vegetables. For example, jerk jackfruit and jerk cauliflower are popular plant-based recipes.

How to Enjoy Baked Jerk Chicken

We turned this baked jerk chicken into a dinner entree (with the potential for lunch leftovers) by serving it with red potatoes, carrots, celery, and red onions for the sides. Traditionally, Jamaican jerk chicken is served with peas, salad, and rice.

If you have leftover jerk chicken (or decide to whip up this recipe again), you could use it to make wraps, jerk chicken soup, stews… The sky is the limit.
