Serves: 4

Prep time: 10 min (plus overnight marinating)

Cook time: 20 min


  • Large chicken legs (4)

  • Jambel Jerk Sauce


  1. Place chicken legs in a freezer bag and add Jambel Jerk sauce, making sure to coat the chicken liberally.

  2. Seal the bag and place in the fridge to marinate overnight.

  3. Set your grill or oven to broil at 400 °F.

  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place chicken legs on the tray, evenly spaced.

  5. Place the tray on the middle rack of the oven, flipping the chicken legs and basting with Jambel Jerk sauce every 10 minutes.

  6. Cook until internal temperature reaches 165 °F.

Serve with your choice of rice or potatoes and a side.

TIP: If you can't marinade the chicken overnight, do it for as long as you can - even just a few hours makes a big difference! Scoring the chicken legs (three to six light cuts across the meat, approx. 5-10 mm deep) can also help the flavours to penetrate the meat even more!
