Ingredients

    5 x jumbo chicken thighs
    4 spring onions
    a small bunch of fresh thyme
    ground cloves
    ground nutmeg
    ground allspice
    6 tablespoons golden rum
    6 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    2 tablespoon runny honey
    1 red chilli
    4 cloves of garlic


Directions

Put a large frying pan on a high heat. Turn the oven on to 190C
Drizzle the chicken with olive oil, sprinkle with salt & pepper, then rub all over both sides of the chicken. Put into the hot pan, skin side down, and leave to cook.
Trim and roughly chop the onions and put into a liquidizer with the leaves from most of the bunch of thyme, a large pinch each of ground cloves, nutmeg and allspice, 6 tablespoons each of rum and vinegar, 1 tablespoon of honey and 2 teaspoons of salt. Add the chilli to the liquidizer along with the garlic and blitz with the lid on until you have a really smooth paste.
Turn the chicken over. Pour the jerk sauce into a snug-fitting baking dish and use tongs to lay the chicken on top, skin side up. Drizzle over 1 tablespoon of runny honey and scatter over a few sprigs of rosemary and the remaining thyme sprigs. Put on the top shelf of the oven and cook for 45minutes, or until cooked through.
Serve, pouring over the leftover sauce from the bottom of the dish
