Jerk yer Chicken

I am finally back in my own kitchen after a summer on the road and I am loving being back in Toronto. Nothing beats walking the streets, hitting my fav shops and markets and generally enjoying the energy of the city. Today is a glorious day, a perfect way to ring in the first day of fall.

Tonight, I am hosting some very good friends for dinner and I am totally stoked to catch up with these peeps since I haven’t seen them in months. I spent a while cruising the farmer’s market at Nathan Phillips Square and bought 95% of the ingredients for this feast from Ontario Farmers. On the menu tonight….Jerk Chicken, Peach Salsa, Roasted Yams, Corn on the Cob and a mixed carrot salad!

Ingredients List:  Makes about 3 Cups of Jerk Marinade (enough for 8+ Chicken Breast)

  • 1 Bunch of Green Onions
  • 7 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Hot Peppers-to taste (I used 2 chili peppers and 3 small Jalapeno’s seeded)
  • 4 small cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 large sweet onion
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/3 cup of  soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup of white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar
  •  2 tsp of ground allspice
  • 1 tsp of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 x Chicken Breasts
