    I like that the chicken recipe turns out golden and very appealing. So many times, the outside doesn’t get that beautiful color to it. THANKS!

    Chris I used your recipe for jerk chicken and red beans and rice for 4th of July family reunion. Your chicken recipe looks delicious. Can you add habernero peppers to add some heat? Thanks again for the great videos.

  5. December 16, 2013 / 5:04 pm

    Mmmhhh, looks yummy. You can almost smell the flavor while watching the youtube movie.
    Will try it for sure, asap!
    As I live in the Caribbean myself (on beautiful Nature Island Dominica), I especially like the choice of ingredients for the dry rub. Most of it is growing in my back yard and the rest is otherwise easily available.
    And congrats for your wicked food blog – love to follow you!

    Would be happy to win the knife set, so I could give it to my 14 yrs son, who is a passionate cook and a fan of Jamie Oliver!….

    Happy Holidays

    I must try this chicken recipe that does not require seasoning overnight (which I always do). My favorite food for the Christmas holidays is Pastelle.
    I enjoy your creativeness with recipes. I have tried a few and love them.

    The chicken turned out nicely there. I like that all of these ingredients could be found in St. Vincent. I don’t eat pork, so baked chicken and turkey will be prepared in my kitchen for the Christmas season. I intend to try this recipe and hope it turns out as well as yours. Thanks for sharing.

  9. December 16, 2013 / 5:56 pm

    I love the brown sugar ingredient it gives the chicken a great color..

    I think the thyme, lemon, scallions in the cavity is pretty traditional; the ginger is definitely a Caribbean touch. The allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg – very Trini blend, though I also associate those flavors with a Moroccan spiced chicken.

    One of my favorite holiday recipes is a good macaroni pie.

    I thought the chilli and ginger was a fab touch to the chicken…I used the recipe but baked mines in a baking bag then left in outside the bag for half hr……it was fantastic with pelau and potato salad.

    The chicken looks delicious Chris. What a wonderful combination of spices.
    I didn`t happen to see, in your video, exactly what you do with the peppers. I am assuming they went into the cavity of the bird as whole peppers. Perhaps you might share with us exactly what happens with them.

  23. December 16, 2013 / 10:15 pm

    I love a good bake chicken recipe the rum reminds me of a jerk chicken rub. I normally flip my chicken over half way in to the cookin and the flip back a few min before done it turns out great I find that what ever fat from the back make the breast meat stay moist when done. My family makes bake ham with Cornish hens for Christmas and potato stuffing island style, pastelle, bake Mac and cheese , and don’t for get coconut and guava tarts and maybe a black cake
    Do u have a good black cake recipe to share I am from st. Thomas my mom from trinidad

    I love everything about this recipe. The spices you used are frequented in my own recipe’s. I also use most of the ingredients here to make my own Jerk sauce. After watching this video I thought about making some jerking chicken for christmas.

    Hi Chris the dry rub on the chicken uses simple ingredients and nothing that would be to hard to find in grocery stores. Also the ingredients used for the stuffing are things I like. It’s a nice mixture and looks simple to make . I would use that recipe on Cornish hens.

    Stuffing the bird with fresh thyme and ginger has to be the ticket. This recipe is pretty simple, just the way it should be. Nice goin Chris!
