Paleo Jerk Chicken

YUM. I will absolutely make this again soon. Perfect with lime roasted sweet potatoes, salad, or pineapple!

Copied from: The Paleo Diet


Serves 3-4
  • 1-1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried thyme (** or 1/2 teaspoon ajwain seeds)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp bright red paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided


1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. 
2. In a small bowl, mix together the spices. Set aside.
3. Cut each chicken thigh into 1-inch segments and place into a separate bowl.
4. Add the spice mix along with 1 Tbsp of the oil to the chicken. Mix well and set aside for 10 minutes.
5. Heat the remaining oil in a wok or large, nonstick frying pan over very high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the chicken.
6. Stir-fry quickly until the pieces are lightly browned or have turned opaque on the outside. 7. Place chicken pieces into a baking dish, and cover loosely with lightly oiled wax paper (which should sit inside the dish and directly on top of the chicken pieces) and bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.
8. Enjoy while hot or remove from hot baking dish to maintain moisture for eating later.
