Jerk Chicken Wings for #SundaySupper

Last week I got to cook my husband something in honor of celebrating Father’s Day with Gallo Family Vineyards, this week I got to make him another dish in honor of Father’s Day with the Sunday Supper Family, is he not a lucky man or what??!! Well Susan from The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting this “Manly Event!”  Thanks for braving this Manly event Susan. I thought of these babies because I know my man loves a kick. A big kick. So I did my research to see what is in the usual “Jerk” seasoning, the kind straight from the islands of Jamaica. Then I thought of a way to really get that seasoning in there by using a plastic bag to marinate them in. Yes I use a plastic bag to marinate a lot of things in. I think I got it from my mother.

These babies marinated for hours. I don’t eat chicken on a bone, I know I know, a true foodie here and I don’t eat meat on a bone or any kind of seafood, don’t hate me. I made these for my husband and my sister and they both devoured them!

Momma's Jerk Chicken (7)p

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp of minced onion flakes
  • 2 1/2 tsp of dried thyme
  • 2 tsp of black pepper
  • 2 tsp of allspice
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 2-4 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 lbs. of chicken/party wings/drumsticks

Directions:

  • In a small bowl add all the first 7 ingredients and mix together. Preheat oven to 375F. Line 2 baking sheets with tinfoil and place baking racks on top. (you don’t have to use baking racks but it prevents the chicken from sticking, if not using them you may want to spray some cooking spray on the tinfoil.) Place chicken on top of racks or sheet pan.
  • Roughly chop an onion, don’t worry about it too much because you placing it in a food processor!
  • Add the chopped onion to the food processor and pulse a few times, add in the spice mixture and olive oil and pulse a few more times. This will create a thick paste. You can do this two different ways, I’ve done them both and I got more compliments on the good ol fashion plastic bag trick.
  • OPTION 1: Scrape the sides of the processor and put the mixture back into the bowl. Using a basting brush dip into the paste and start coating the chicken one by one. Flip and coat the rest. If you have some left over, coat again half way through.
  • OPTION 2: Scrape the sides of the processor and put the mixture in a zip lock bag. Add chicken and shake it around making sure the paste covers all of the chicken wings. Let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours if not longer.
  • Bake for 20 min. Flip and bake another 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Let sit for a few minutes. Then enjoy this manly meal!

    I was introduced to jerk chicken when I was living in Texas and we love it. Excited that you shared a jerk spice mix from scratch, can’t wait to try.
