Jerk Chicken is marinated in a flavorful and spicy Jerk Chicken Marinade and cooked on the grill.
Chop onion and scallions and add it to the food processor. Add spicy pepper, garlic cloves, and all remaining ingredients.
Pulse until the mixture if completely smooth and blended.
Place chicken into a large zip-lock bag and pour all the marinade over it.
Close the bag and mix so chicken is coated evenly.
Lay the bag down in a large plate and refrigerate overnight to marinade.
Start the coals and make sure to preheat the grill first. Brush the grill grate with some oil to grease it and place chicken drumsticks on the grill.
Close the lid and cook for about 5-6 minutes. Open the lid and use metal tongues to flip the chicken quarter of the way. Close the lid and cook for another 5-6 minutes. Flip chicken another quarter of the way. Repeat until chicken is cooked all around. (Depending on the size of the drumsticks, it will take 30-35 minutes.)
Use a leave-in thermometer to take the temperature of the chicken as it cooks. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the biggest drumstick and cook until the internal temperature is 165°.
