A CookTale

With the addition of Jamacian Jerk Seasoning, amazing changes happen to Chicken Thighs. As I’m sure you are aware, Jerk is a style of cooking native to Jamaica in which chicken or meat is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a hot spice mixture.
I mixed it with softened butter and whisked it into a smooth emulsion. I then spread it over and under the skin. The finished flavor was spicy and delicious.


2 Chicken Thighs 8 ounces each, skin on & bone in
1 TB of Jamacian Jerk powder + 3 TB of softened Butter
2 tsp of Salt + 1 tsp of Pepper
1 TB of EVOO
1/4 Cup of Oregano or Parsley Leaves cut into a chiffonade.


1. Heat a grill pan to high. Add the EVOO.
2. When ready add the Thighs & grill for 3 minutes on one side, 4 minutes the other side. The temperature should be no more than 135 degrees. Remove. It will continue to cook while resting for 5 minutes.
3. Spoon the pan juices onto each plate, add the Thighs & sprinke with the Herbs.
