Typical Jamaican jerk seasoning packs a big punch of heat from Scotch bonnet chilies. Here, we call for just one chili; it roasts along with the chicken and garlic and becomes part of the sauce. If you like, you can use a milder chili, such as serrano or jalapeño. Use chicken breasts, legs, thighs or a combination.

Tip

Don't use a roasting pan. The low sides of a sturdy rimmed baking sheet allow the chicken to cook quickly and brown evenly.

This was delicious (especially the sauce), and very easy to make. Mashing the garlic and pepper on the baking sheet and deglazing the drippings was a great, simple way to produce a flavorful sauce.

This was wonderful and so simple! I used breasts and they took a bit longer than the recommended time, but hardly noticed while pulling together some sides.
