Jerk Chicken Wings


Jerk Marinade

4  Scallions, roughly chopped

2 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves

1  habanero pepper, chopped

4  garlic cloves

2  in. piece of ginger, sliced

3 tbsp. lime juice

2 tsp. ground allspice

1 tbsp. salt

¼ c. SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend

2 tbsp. olive oil


12 whole chicken wings

Lime wedges for serving


  1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a food processor or blender
    and puree until smooth.
  2. Transfer the marinade to a large re-sealable plastic bag with the
    chicken wings and toss to coat thoroughly. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  3. When ready to grill, prepare a grill for indirect grilling. Lightly
    oil the grilling grate. Place wings on the hot side of the grill and grill
    turning occasionally until charred all over, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer wings to the cool side of the grill and continue to cook,
    covered until fully cooked and browned all over, about 20 minutes.
  5. Alternatively, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and preheat a grill pan
    on the stovetop and char wings on all sides 8-10 minutes. Transfer to the oven
    and cook until cooked through, about 15 more minutes.
  6. Serve with lime wedges.
