Spicy Jerk Chicken with Vita Coco Coconut Oil
Serves 4
This sweet and spicy jerk chicken marinade is the perfect recipe for your summer barbecue. When I heard about the Foodies100/Vita Coco #ReachfortheBeach competition to come up with a great barbecue recipe using the deliciously versatile Vita Coco Coconut Oil I knew a West Indian inspired dish would be a fantastic combo. It’s super easy to make so the kids can easily get involved, and all the better if you can whizz it together ahead of time so the chicken can marinate in the flavours for a few hours. This recipe uses dried chillis since I’m not keen on chopping fresh chilli with kids (ouch!), but of course this is optional. And you can dial the chilli level up or down depending on your kids’ taste.
