If you wanted to, you could cook this Low Syn Jerk Chicken on the barbecue.

Just be careful to cook it on a low heat or indirectly, so you don’t burn it as the honey will catch quite easily.

  1. Just making this in my actifry and it smells delicious. I’ve added peppers and onion to the chicken and kidney beans in the rice. Yum!

    1. Hi Vivienne
      You could leave the honey out, but it really adds to the overall flavour and gives the marinade a viscosity that helps it to coat the chicken. If leaving it out, it might be worth marinating the chicken for an hour or two so that the chicken takes on more of the jerk flavouring. 🙂

    1. Hi Emma
      Yes, it will be absolutely fine. As soon as it’s cool, pop it into a sealed container and store in the fridge overnight. 🙂

  2. Other than rice, what would you say is best to serve this with? I feel like I’m gonna turn into a bag of rice 😂

  3. This was delicious, I used Schwartz Jamaican jerk seasoning but I see on the back now that it contains sugar, does this mean it’s not synn free? I think it’s 2 synns for 15g? Where’s the best place to get synn free jerk seasoning?

    1. Hi Emily
      We explain in the recipe blurb that we’ve feature the Schwartz Jerk seasoning in this recipe because it’s listed as Syn Free on the SW website.

  4. Hi team,
    I’m hoping you can clear this up for me. Does the honey lose its syns once cooked? I’m confused as using the honey is 4 syns, but the overall chicken is only 1 syn. Delicious recipe by the way!

    1. Hi Katie
      The recipe uses 1.5 tablespoons of honey for 4 Syns. The recipe serves 4 people, meaning the syns are divided by 4, so one portion is 1 Syn. Hopefully that clears things up! 😉

    1. Hi Marina
      The Jerk seasoning isn’t overly spicy, it certainly won’t blow your head off. We suggest in the blurb that you can add an extra kick by adding some chilli. Hope that helps! 🙂
