Try making this simple jerk seasoned and marinated chicken with spices you probably already have in your cupboards. Throw them on the grill for extra smokey summer flavor.

The more traditional jerk chicken recipes, such as this one from Food & Wine, include a mixture of onions, garlic, Scotch bonnet chiles, and nutmeg along with a number of other ingredients. The main tenets of jerk seasoning are heat, fragrance, and deliciousness. What follows here is a slightly bastardized version that utilizes ingredients most regular home cooks will have in their pantries. The best part? It’s incredibly simple to prepare. Don’t believe me?
