Jerk Chicken with Fruity Caribbean Slaw

Jerk and slaw



12 skinless chicken drumsticks

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

2 tbsp – So Easy Seasonings Jerk blend

2 tbsp tomato purée

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 Scotch Bonnet chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

1 tbsp dark soy sauce

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 lime wedges, to serve


For the slaw:


200g roasted red peppers in brine from a jar, drained and roughly chopped

1 carrot, peeled and shredded

1 red onion, thinly sliced

200g each mango and pineapple flesh, cut into bite-size cubes

1 tsp So Easy Seasonings Jerk blend

Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime

A small handful of fresh fl at-leaf parsley, finely chopped, to garnish




  1. Add the chicken drumsticks, vinegar, Jerk seasoning, tomato purée, garlic, chilli and soy sauce in a food bag, season, seal and shake to mix well. Marinate in the fridge for 3-4 hours, or overnight if you can. (if you don’t have a food bag, use a large bowl and cover with cling film)


  1. Preheat your grill to medium hot. Line the grill rack with kitchen foil and lay the chicken on the rack in a single layer. Grill for 8-10 minutes on each side, or until cooked through, brushing with any remaining marinade after the first 5 minutes.


  1. Meanwhile, for the slaw, put the roasted red peppers, carrot, red onion, mango and pineapple in a bowl. Add the jerk seasoning and lime zest and juice, season and toss well to combine.


Divide the slaw between plates and garnish with parsley. Top with the chicken and serve with lime wedges for squeezing over.
