Jamaican Jerk Baked Chicken

This dish is inspired by my cousin-in-law, a fantastic Pampered Chef cook!

  • whole chicken
  • olive oil
  • Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
  • half a lemon

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place in baker breast side up. Brush chicken with olive oil, sprinkle with Jamaican Jerk seasoning, and add squeeze of half a lemon.

Bake in 375 degree oven for one hour, or if you use a Pampared Chef Baker, you can cook in the microwave for thirty minutes, checking to confirm that internal temperature reaches 170 degrees.

If you have never used a Pampered Chef Baker, they are totally cool. You can cook all kinds of things in the microwave that you previously did not. Makes dinner preparation quick.

Serve chicken with your choice of rice and vegetables.
