BBQ Jamaican Jerk Chicken Recipe {Gluten Free and Paleo Recipe}

As I have gotten older I appreciate old friends more and more. Unfortunately I don’t get to see my dear friends as much as I wish. Tonight I was lucky enough to have an old friend in town stop by for dinner. Lucky for her I was making my all-time favorite BBQ recipe. It is so good to me that I could eat it every night. This chicken is so flavorful and moist. It is spicy but the spice doesn’t last very long and leaves a sweet and spicy aftertaste.

This is another perfect recipe to make in advance. Tonight there was a bulldog meetup at the beach. Talk about cuteness overload. There were bullies everywhere. My photos include a break to go meet up for the first time with one of my favorite bulldogs I follow on Instagram. The bulldogs have their own instagram account @bulldogbrigade if you want to follow them. Ridiculous I know. But thanks to this recipe I had dinner practically made before I left for the meet-up. I usually make it the night before on weeknights so dinner is super quick the next night. I’ve even left it marinating a couple of days and it was just as delicious. It’s also great to bring to friends houses, camping, or other BBQ’s. I found the original recipe here. The original recipe calls for bone in and skin on chicken which takes a lot longer and is trickier to BBQ. Especially if you are just learning to BBQ like me. I have modified mine to make it gluten free and to save time by using boneless skinless chicken thighs. It is extremely good with the original recipe but just takes longer.
