Ingredients

  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 4 tsp jerk seasoning (we used Schwartz)
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 2 red onions, sliced
  • small bunch coriander, stalks finely chopped, leaves reserved
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 410g can kidney beans, drained

Tip

Spiced veg
Toss 2 tsp any of the above spices with root veg, oil and seasoning, then roast at 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 for 40 mins or until tender and golden.

Use up the jerk seasoning
Super-speedy marinade: Mix 1 tbsp jerk seasoning or curry powder into 3 tbsp natural yogurt and use as a marinade for chicken breasts, prawns or lamb chops before grilling or barbecuing.

Fragrant mash
Fry ½ tsp each jerk seasoning, ground coriander or cumin in a little oil, then stir into mashed potatoes.

Method

  1. Toss chicken in 1 tsp jerk seasoning and a little salt and pepper. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan, quickly brown the chicken, then remove. Tip in the remaining oil, onions and coriander stalks, then soften for 5 mins, stirring in the remaining jerk seasoning for the final min.

  2. Return the drumsticks to the pan, pour over the tomatoes, then bring to a simmer. Cover, then cook for 20 mins. Remove the lid, stir in the beans, then cook for 10 mins more. Scatter with coriander and serve with rice.
