Jerk Chicken with Citrus Salad


I make this when I’m real lazy and seconds from ordering pizza delivery. Fool-proof and under $10 for dinner. If you’re really hungry, serve with brown rice or couscous.

You’ll Need:
1 pkg chicken thighs (bone-in has more flavor…boneless, skinless = easier to eat…pick your preference)
Jerk Seasoning
Salt & Pepper
1 huge grapefruit, segmented
2 oranges, segmented
1/2 a red onion, sliced into strips
1/4C fresh parsley, rough chopped

Preheat oven to 400*F. Season chicken with salt, pepper and generous sprinkle of your favorite Jerk Seasoning. Place on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil. Bake 20 mins.

In a bowl combine oranges, grapefruit, red onion and parsley. Let the flavors marinate while your chicken cooks. I just love the combo of red onion + citrus. Diced finely into cubes, this also makes a good salsa.


Serve the finished chicken alongside the salad, grab a big glass of wine and relax…you barely cooked! 😉
