The Black Farmer jerk chicken 

Enjoy an authentic taste of Jamaica with our new jerk paste. Created in collaboration with The Black Farmer, Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, this flavour-packed paste is based on a family recipe that can be traced back to the 1800s. Made with spices, rum and scotch bonnet chilli, this seasoning paste is not only incredible with chicken, but also tastes great with veg and plant-based alternatives. Try Wilfred’s jerk chicken recipe below. 

Serves 4

For the chicken 
1 tbsp groundnut oil
8 skin-on bone-in chicken thighs
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
200g M&S The Black Farmer jerk paste
400g chopped tomatoes
200ml dry white wine (optional)

For the rice and peas 
1 tbsp groundnut oil
1 red pepper, deseeded and diced
1 green pepper, deseeded and diced
250g long grain rice, rinsed
1 tsp ground allspice
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
50g coconut cream
350ml hot chicken stock
1 tin (400g) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
Coriander, chopped to garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6. 

2. Heat the groundnut oil in a flameproof casserole pan on the hob and cook the chicken for 5 minutes, turning until brown. Remove and set aside.

3. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and gently cook for 3-4 minutes. Next, stir in the jerk paste and cook for 1 minute.

4. Return the chicken to the pan and coat in the onion mixture. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, wine (if using) and stock pot. Cover and cook in the oven for 1 hour.

5. After 40 minutes, start cooking the rice and peas. Heat the groundnut oil in a large, lidded saucepan and cook the peppers for 3-4 minutes, until starting to soften. Stir in the rice, allspice, thyme, coconut cream, chicken stock and peas. 

6. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook on a low heat for 10-15 minutes, until the rice is tender and the stock has been absorbed. Season generously. 

7. Serve the rice and peas with the jerk chicken, and garnish with the fresh coriander.
