Gran Luchito Smoky Mexican Jerk Chicken

We love jerk chicken, and we had a sneaky suspicion that it might just work with Gran Luchito. In this recipe we’ve replaced the scotch bonnet chillies with our Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste, to give this Mexican Jerk chicken a slightly milder, but equally delicious result. Another delicious chicken fusion dish is our Mexican Tandoori recipe, we recommend you giving both of em a try!

How to make it


  1. Add everything apart from the chicken to a food processor (cinnamon, nutmeg, thyme, spring onions and Gran Luchito  Chipotle Paste, sugar, salt, soy sauce and lime juice.)
  2. Pour this over the chicken and massage in as much as possible (putting it all into a freezer bag is the easiest way!).
  3. Leave covered in the fridge for as long as possible (preferably overnight).
  4. You can cook this on the BBQ or in a griddle pan on the hob. BBQ will give you a more authentic smoky flavour, but remember the smoky flavour of Gran Luchito will give you this too!
  5. Cook through and finish in the oven. Don’t worry too much if the skin gets slightly blackened.
  6. Serve with your favourite salad and a icy cold beer!
