4 people 50 minutes 15 minutes


  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 0.5 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 4 tbsp Coconut Cream
  • 2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 2 tsp Ground Allspice
  • 0.5 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 - Lime zest and juice
  • 0.5 tsp Salt
  • 2.5 tsp SuperValu Dried Thyme
  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Fresh Ginger grated
  • 1 - SuperValu Green Chilli deseeded and chopped
  • 8 - SuperValu Quality Irish Chicken Thighs skin on and bone in

For the Red Cabbage Coleslaw

  • 3 - Carrots grated
  • 1 pinch Caster Sugar
  • 50 ml Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 200 g Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 - Red Onion finely diced
  • 400 g SuperValu Red Cabbage finely sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 200oC/gas mark 6.
  2. To make the jerk seasoning, place the thyme, allspice, black pepper, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and salt in a bowl. Combine this with the chilli, garlic, coconut cream and ginger, then stir in the lime zest and juice. Slice the chicken a few times down to the bone and cover with the jerk paste. Place on a baking tray and roast in the oven for around 50 minutes. The thighs should be golden brown on top and cooked through.
  3. For the coleslaw, place the cabbage, carrots and red onion in a large bowl and toss to combine. In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt, vinegar, mustard and sugar, then stir this dressing through the vegetables until well combined. Serve the jerk chicken with a helping of coleslaw on the side.

Tip: You can use any meat on the bone for this recipe, not just chicken. Serve it with rice for a traditional Caribbean meal.
