Wuki’s Marinated Jerk Chicken

Ingredients

3 drumsticks
1 cup scallions, chopped
1 hot pepper like habanero, chopped
1 lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp dried thyme

2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger root
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves

Steps

Yields: 1 serving

I wanted to put this dish together because its so easy if you make the marinade in batches! I make it ahead of time and then cook this for dinner by myself. I’ve been doing this more and more. If you don’t have a lot of the dry spices you can also just buy some mix packs online.

You can grill, bake, or air fry the drumsticks, and they’re pretty amazing. I really love to air fry!

Marinade:
1. Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Add more oil if necessary.
3. Marinade chicken for as long as possible, more than an hour for best results.

Cook:
1. Air fry for 30 min or until golden brown
or
2. Bake for 45 min or until golden brown
or
3. Grill until done
