Jamaican-inspired Roasted Jerk Chicken with Pepper Bells


1. 1 whole chicken
2. 1 red pepper bell sliced
3. 1 yellow pepper bell sliced
4. 1 yellow pepper bell sliced
5. 1 orange for stuffing cavity
6. 1/2 orange sliced
7. 1 onion quartered
8. 1 stalk of spring onions chopped long
9. 4 TBS green seasoning
10. 1 tsp black seasoning
11. 1 tsp jerk seasoning
12. 1 tsp paprika
13. 2 TBS olive oil
14. Salt and pepper to taste


1. Season chicken all over (including the cavity) with green seasoning, black seasoning, jerk seasoning, paprika, 1 TBS olive oil and salt. Store chicken in a zip-lock bag and refrigerate overnight.

2. Pre-heat oven to 180  degree celsius.

3. Place orange inside the chicken cavity and place chicken in an oven-proof dish.

4. Arrange spring onions, onions, orange slices and half of the pepper bells around the chicken.

5. Sprinkle the vegetables with 1 TBS olive oil and some salt to taste.

6. Roast for 45 mins or until the thermometer reads 75 degree celsius.

7. Arrange the rest of the raw pepper bells around the chicken for color and it is ready to serve :-)

* You can also roast the chicken at 150 degree celsius for 1.5 hour in the oven. If you have an errand to do, you can dump the chicken into the oven, set the temperature to 130 degree celsius for 2.5 hrs. When you return, the chicken is done and dinner is ready to be served :-)

Additional Information:

I stumbled across this interesting recipe: hhttps://www.alicaspepperpot.com/whole-roasted-jerk-chicken/. Today with a bit more time and for a change, I decided to dress the chicken with more seasoning then the usual garlic and salt. I have also thrown in a parsnip.

Orange is used instead of honey to sweeten this dish.

Fancy serving a dish that look like burned chicken to your guests, but doesn't taste like it, to your guests - a good seasoning to use on April's fool day :-)

This is how my "burned chicken" looked like after using the blackened seasoning. Don't be fooled by its burned appearance, it actually tasted good :-)

But what a name! If you ever have a boss that bullies you, you could consider serving this to him :-)

Oops, I served it to Mr. FECS for dinner tonight through the roasted jerk chicken dish, but no pun intended here.
