The marinade.....
1.1 tsp apple cider vinegar

5.2 cloves of garlic
6.2 tsp dried thyme
7.mixed spices(cumin,cardamon,cloves)

Blend your marinade & marinate your chicken overnight for best result.

Remove your chicken from the marinade & brown it on both sides.I used a non-stick pan on low heat.

Remove chicken from pan & add 1 onion & saute for a minute.

Add your chicken & the marinade and cook for 5-10 minutes,my chicken was pre-boiled cause chicken stock.

I served my chicken with stir fry veggies & grilled potatoes.You can also grill your jerk chicken.

Happy New Week.
