Jamaican Jerk Chicken Breast recipe
Courtesy of Chef Ace Champion
Jerk Chicken Breast
Boneless Chicken Breast 4-8oz. pounded for even cooking
Ace’s Jamaican Spice 2 tablespoons
Italian Seasoning 2 tablespoons
White Wine ¼ cup To thin out the jerk seasoning if needed
Avocado Oil ¼ cup Any oil will work just make sure it has a 400 degree smoke point or higher
Directions for Marinating Chicken
1. Season chicken breast with Ace’s Jerk spice and Italian seasoning then place the chicken in a 1 gallon zip lock bag. Seal, making sure you release as much air as possible. Allow chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Directions for cooking the Chicken:
1. Remove chicken from zip lock bag. In a large skillet heat ¼ cup of oil on high heat until very hot. Place each chicken breast in the oil one at a time making sure not to splash. Allow to cook until a caramelized dark color has formed, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
2. Remove chicken from skillet and place in a small backing dish. While the skillet it hot add a ¼ cup of chicken broth or wine to the pan and mix to deglaze all the spices stuck to the pan. Pour the mixture over the chicken and cook in a pre-heated 320 degree oven for about 10 to 15 minutes based on the thickness. Check the chicken after 10 minutes. The finished tempter should be around 160.
3. Remove chicken from oven and allow resting on the counter for about 2-3 minutes to allow all the juices to settle in
Plating: Slice half of the chicken breast at a 90 degree angle. Serve with your favorite side of veggie or starch.
