Jerk Rub Chicken with Peach Salsa

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

Jamaican jerk spice blend works great to jazz up the boring bland skinless boneless chicken breast while sweet juicy peach salsa makes an excellent summery addition to the meal. The recipe is easy, quick and very versatile. Use chicken drumsticks or thighs instead of breast, mango or pineapple for the salsa in the place of peach and feel free to use more jalapenos if you want it spicier. If you don't have any fresh lime on hand, just use lemon.
Jamaican jerk rub is a spicy, sweet, and tangy seasoning for grilled meat, pork and chicken particularly.

Jamaican Jerk ChickenPeach Salsa
  • 1 tbsp Garlic granules
  • 1 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 4 tsp Dried thyme leaves
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp Ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 3 / 500-600 g Chicken breast
  • 350-400 g / 2 Ripe yet firm peaches, peeled and diced
  • 150 g Red bell pepper, seeded, finely diced
  • 1 alapeño, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 Red onion, finely diced
  • 3-4 tbsp Mint and parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 Large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  1. In a bowl, combine all the spices for the rub and mix well. Cut the chicken breast lengthways into 2 equal pieces. Add in 2 tablespoons of the prepared rub and massage it into the chicken, making sure that chicken is evenly covered with spice mixture. Store the rest airtight at room temperature. Cover and leave to marinate while you prepare the salsa. You can make this one day ahead and leave the chicken marinate overnight.
  2. Peel and dice the peaches. Transfer them to a bowl. Finely chop seeded bell pepper, jalapeño. and red onion and add all the vegetables to the bowl with peaches. Add chopped mint, parsley, lime juice, salt and pepper. Gently toss everything together until well mixed. Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet (or grill pan) on high until hot. Add in chicken breast and cook until well browned, about 5 minutes. Lower the heat and add in butter, cook, covered, for a further 5 minutes until cooked through.
  4. Spoon the prepared peach salsa on a platter and top with jerk rub chicken. Garnish with fresh mint leaf. Enjoy!

Angie, Great looking jerked chicken, one of my favorites! I'd have to accompany it with something else though and I don't do onions or bell peppers. Love peaches though... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

OMG, Angie, this looks magnificent! I love Jamaican jerk chicken. The recipe that I have is paired with apples, but your version with peaches looks amazing. I just bought peaches, and I have all of the other ingredients. I cannot wait to try this.

babYpose 9/9/21 09:05

I just learnt how to debone drumstick and thigh. Variety to go with. The salsa sauce with peach must be very good. Jalapeno too spicy depends on quantity I think.
