Nutritional Breakdown

Fiery Jerked Chicken Thighs – 431kcals and 13.6g of fat per serving


  • 8 free range chicken thighs, skinned and boned
  • a few spritzes of olive oil
  • 1 ripe plantain

For the marinade

  • 2 tablespoons of English mustard
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 4 tablespoons runny honey
  • 3 habanero, (Scotch bonnet) chillies, deseeded and chopped
  • 6 spring onions, roughly chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • a few sprigs of fresh thyme leaves
  • a few sprigs of fresh oregano leaves
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

For the salad

  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ a cucumber, peeled, deseeded and halfmooned
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 50g shaved fresh coconut
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut milk
  • a small bunch of fresh coriander


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Coat chicken and leave to marinade for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.

To make the salad mix the tomatoes, cucumber, shallots and fresh coconut together.  In a pestle and mortar pound the red chilli with a pinch of salt. Mix in the lime juice and coconut milk. Toss into the salad and mix in the fresh coriander leaves.

Heat a griddle on high until almost smoking. Spritz the chicken thighs with the oil then lay on the griddle and grill for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.

Slice the plantain on the diagonal and griddle for 3 minutes turning halfway through. Serve the salad on a plate with two chicken thighs and some griddled plantain.
