1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
2 tsp grated fresh root ginger
1 tsp ground allspice
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 Scotch bonnet chilli, chopped
2 tbsp vegetable oil
8 chicken thighs or drumsticks
1 Preheat the grill (broiler) to medium and set the grill (broiling) rack about 15cm/6in from the heat.
2 Use a blender or a pestle and mortar to make the jerk marinade. Combine the thyme, ginger, allspice, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, chilli and oil until smooth.
3 Put the chicken pieces on a foil-lined baking sheet and pour the jerk marinade over them. Rub it into the chicken. Grill (broil) for 15 minutes, turning the chicken occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through.
4 Serve the chicken with boiled rice and some salad.
