Tips for making the best keto jerk chicken marinade:

  • I found that grilling this chicken over a medium-heat fire and turning occasionally for 30-40 minutes was the perfect way to cook this dish.
  • Serve this chicken with cauliflower rice and lime wedges for a complete keto-friendly dinner idea.
  • Jerk chicken recipes are already close to being keto-friendly, but to lower the carb-count even further, I switched out the sugar for Brown Swerve and used Coconut Aminos.
  • The marinade can be made up to 3 days beforehand to have it available when you’re ready to add the chicken. I also like to start marinating chicken before work so it’s ready to cook by dinnertime, giving it closer to 8 hours to really absorb the flavors.
  • If you are using the oven for this recipe, I like pouring the marinade into the pan so you have extra sauce to serve, but this is optional. If you are grilling the chicken, discard the extra marinade in the bag.

My team member, Jenna, gave this jerk chicken marinade recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:

“Not only does this smell amazing while cooking, but it also tastes even better! I am a huge fan of jerk chicken but often it tends to be so spicy, this marinade has the perfect kick of flavor without going overboard. I ate mine over cauliflower rice for a truly delicious low carb dinner.”
