Quick And Easy Jerk Chicken

As you will know I have been sharing my quick and easy family dinner recipes with you.  This is where I share family meals that are quick and easy to make.  Looking at the short cuts, as we all know that in real life work, and after work/school activities get in the way of being able to take time and prepare family meals from scratch.

I love baking, and when I get the chance will happily bake cakes, breads and cookies.  Family meals I find a chore at times, not because I do not like to give my family a nice meal.  But because to get a good meal it can take a lot of preparation, which many of us do not have the time for.


Chicken breast sliced or chicken breast fillets (you can use legs or wings as well)

Jar of Schwartz Jerk Chicken Seasoning


Step 1

place the chicken breast in a bowl and coat in the Jerk Seasoning.  Leave to marinade for as long as you have, this can be whilst you sort everything else out.

Step 2

Heat a griddle pan and placed chicken and keep turning until thoroughly cooked.

That is it so quick and easy.

Serving suggestions

  • Savoury rice – try using the savoury rice packets you can buy in the supermarkets.  I always have a packet or two in the cupboard as a just in case I have nothing else
  • Oven chips – I have found some great oven chips, McCanns Gastro Triple Cooked 
  • Salad
  • Add corn on the cob or coleslaw

What else would you choose to add to this dish? If you would like to share one of your recipes with my audience I am always happy to host your recipe.

    I don’t think I’ve tried jerk chicken yet. It’s great that there is a ready-made marinade as normally I think you need to use loads of spices. This way is much easier.

      I do probably have all the spices you need, my cupboard is full of them, but this is so much quicker and easier

      Honestly, I just do not get the time to cook from scratch very often, so finding the cheat versions is what I love. This goes down very well in my house x

      Obviously, if time was no limit making it from scratch is always nicer, but this is great for when you just do not have the time x

    I love jerk chicken; it’s one of my favourite things to cook from scratch on the BBQ. I use a dry rub, a wet marinade and then use the marinade to make a dipping sauce too. Love it! 😀

    I love using herbs and spices that are pre mixed and you can just need to put over meat it makes cooking so much easier but the food still packs a lot of flavour x
