Microwave Jerk Chicken

7 Min

This flavorful dish, which origniated in the Caribbean, is made with a make-your-own jerk seasoning that really packs a punch! This super seasoning works great on both chicken and pork, so give 'em a try!

What You'll Need

  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 5 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons allspice
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 to 1 pounds total)

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients except the chicken; mix well. Add the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  2. Coat a microwave-safe 9" x 13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Add the chicken, discard the marinade.
  3. Microwave at 80% power for 6 to 7 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken.


Jerk seasoning blends start with the same basic ingredients, but can be varied depending on what we're in the mood for. Don't be afraid to add a different spice now and the, such as cinnamon, ginger, cloves, or even chili powder for an extra kick.

Uncle Sam's Pulled Pork

Here's a recipe that's anything but taxing! Uncle Sam's Pulled Pork is a budget-friendly, weeknight winner. In this recipe, we slow cook boneless pork butt to perfection with some chopped onions and a can of cola. A little BBQ sauce and it's ready to go! Just pile it onto a roll along with some of our homemade coleslaw and you're set for lots of "yum!"
