Mike Tomkins' Jerk Chicken Supreme
Delicious spicy jerk chicken, served with brown rice and peas, a crunchy cabbage salad and a mango and pineapple salsa. Inspired by a recent trip to Jamaica, this vibrant recipe by Mike Tomkins is full of beautiful colours and flavours. It’s the perfect pick-me-up in winter, or a lovely sharing meal to enjoy outside in the summer.
This recipe tells you how to cook your chicken in the oven, but if you are able to cook it over fire you will get a lovely char and smokey flavour. Mike has included a recipe for the jerk seasoning, but you can also use shop-bought if you prefer.
Cooked with the Thermapen One to create perfectly juicy chicken, Mike removed it from the heat at 68°C to allow the temperature to rise to 74°C as it rested.
