How to make a delicious jerk chicken

  • Blend together the thyme leaves, barbecue sauce, spring onions, juice of one lime, allspice, soy sauce, and 150 ml of warm water in a blender.
  • Heat half of the oil in a casserole dish set over a medium heat until hot.
  • Add the chicken and saute briefly before adding the beans and the prepared sauce.
  • Cover with a lid and simmer for 15 minutes until the beans are tender.
  • Season to taste once ready.
  • Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan set over a moderate heat until hot.
  • Add the celery, diced peppers, and a little salt.
  • Fry for 2 minutes and then add the rice.
  • Continue to fry over a reduced heat, stirring occasionally, until the rice is piping hot throughout.
  • Serve the jerk chicken over the rice with slices from the remaining lime and sprigs of parsley.
  • Add a couple of dashes of Tabasco for added spiciness.
