Jerk Chicken is a staple of Jamaican cuisine. While our Jerk Seasoning is less spicy than a traditional Jamaican Jerk, it brings beautiful depth and round flavor to any dish you can think up! We added some lime juice to the mix to make a bit of a wet marinade for this grilled chicken, and it was awesome!

- Begin by patting the chicken dry, and tossing with olive oil.
- Season with the Primal Palate Jerk Seasoning. Drizzle with lime juice, and toss to evenly distribute. (you can also rub with a basting brush).
- At this point you can cook immediately or let the chicken rest in the marinade for 1-6 hours.
- Heat grill to medium heat. If you are able to grill over charcoal, even better!
- Place chicken on the grill and turn every 5-6 minutes until cooked through. The chicken is ready to turn or flip when it releases easily from the grill.
- Serve alongside your favorite side dishes.
