Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings

We are hoping to go to Jamaica this winter and we thought it would be fun to have a Jamaica themed dinner party and have everyone that is going with us to bring a dish. We had a great time and all the food was delicious!!  We will in time share all the recipes that we made as they were all very good!!


Chicken wings split, 2-5 pounds
1 Cup Jamaican Jerk marinade

2 Scotch bonnet chilies or whatever hot chilies you have available, seeds and veins removed, minced. Wear gloves!!
2 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 minced shallots
1 small bunch green onion, minced
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
¼ Cup red wine vinegar
½ Cup orange juice
¼ Cup soya sauce
¼ Cup dark rum
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons allspice
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
pinch ground cloves
½ Cup olive oil or vegetable oil

In a food processor, blender or in a bowl. Combine all ingredients except the oil.If using a food processor or blender just pulse the ingredients together a couple times to combine. Slowly drizzle in the oil so that the jerk marinade emulsifies, or thickens and combines into a vinaigrette.
Put wings into a ziplock bag and pour jerk marinade into bag. Marinade for 8 hours, turning bag and massaging wings to ensure all wings are covered periodically.
You will have more than 1 Cup of marinade so reserve some for basting later.
Remove chicken wings from the bag. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Grease the foil well. Arrange wings on pan ensuring to not overcrowd the baking sheet.
Bake uncovered in a 400 degree oven until wings are crispy, turning and basting with reserved marinade.
