flippin birds and yellin eff u


When you decide you are going to participate in one of these smackdowns you have to understand what you are getting into. This month BamaTrav is hosting the Caribbean Smackdown. Since I got my ass kicked in Lobster I thought I would try again.


Jerk chicken with coconut rice and black beans garnished with a mango and tomato and cilantro relish - cant get more simple than that. If you want the recipe for my extra sweet and extra spicy jerk rub you know how to reach me......

Doggy Jerk Rub Or
ChezWhat a Jerk Rub

1 dried cascabel chile
1 dried habanero chile
1 teaspoon thyme
10-15 whole allspice
1 teaspoon dried ginger
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar

Put the whole thing in a spice mill and grind to a powder.

I took 5 legs and thighs and rubbed the jerk into boths sides generously and then I drizzled olive oil and let it sit for a couple of hours to fully marinate. (save a little bit of the rub to toss in the relish)

Preheat oven to 350

Heat an oven proof skillet to almost the smoking point and put the chicken pieces in skin side up, because of the sugar they will smoke and caramelize quickly so keep an eye on them - turn over and brown skin side as well.

Pour in a half a cup of coconut milk, cover and braise for 25-30 minutes or until the meat pulls away from the leg bone, uncover and let crisp up for a few minutes. Let chicken rest before serving to allow the juices to re-position themselves.

For the rice

Make rice ( I used brown jasmine rice in a rice cooker)
After rice is perfectly cooked and fluffed add drained and rinsed black beans, a 1/2 cup of shredded and toasted coconut and a 1/4 cup of coconut milk and fluff again.

For the relish

De seed and cube a nice ripe tomato
cube a semi ripe mango
a handful of cilantro leaves chopped
Toss everything together with salt and pepper and a little of the jerk rub and a squeeze of lime.

Plate it all up and enjoy!

pinknest said...

Love this smackdown!! I haven't had good jerk chicken in awhile. The last time I had some, it was ridiculously salty. Blah!

Sweta said...

I've heard so much about Caribbean food and jerk chicken but haven't seen any restaurants around here :(
Could I get the recipe for the jerk chicken? I hope the ingredients aren't hard to find.

Sippity Sup said...

So do I go over to Bama and support you? Oh, I'll just go over there and see what the rules are. GREG

Heff said...

Awesome dish regardless of the effort, man !

lishapisa said...

Whoa! talk about a perfect combination!

Miranda said...

FLIPPIN AWESOME!!! :)
I love it.

Belinda @zomppa said...

Haha! Now THAT'S a smack down!

Justin said...

I think you need a new recipe name ... doggy jerk rub ... sounds like the chicken and rice are getting a little too intimate. Christopher, please. ;)

teresa said...

looks like a winner to me! and i love the rub you used.

buffalodick said...

I just got mine up, the company last night enjoyed it..
That looks like a killer jerk rub..

Chow and Chatter said...

now this is what you call a rockin rub love it

5 Star Foodie said...

The jerk rub sounds awesome, love the whole dish with the colorful mango tomato relish! Excellent!

Girl Foodie said...

Both the rub and the coconut milk braising sound fantastic. Nothing like a little spice to cheer a bit of chicken up!

Lauren (Healthy Delicious) said...

this looks amazing!

Marjie said...

it's a good looking plate of food, dude. Glad I'm not competing with you and Buff.

intuitive eggplant said...

What a gorgeous plate of food! Especially intrigued by that rice, then again, all the elements sound delish! Too bad I didn't have time to participate this time around, but I'm sure getting some lovely inspiration from others' entries!

doggybloggy said...

half way through the day it made sense to just go ahead and post the rub recipe - I hope you try it and let me know how it works out for you - the chicken disappeared so fast it is but a faded memory.

Mo said...

I really need to try jerk something one of these days. Looks fantastic. :)

FOODalogue said...

Looks like you got a winner there! Good luck.

Ciao Chow Linda said...

That is one smackdown I hope you won. That chicken looks fantastic.

moi said...

Phew. We got ourselves a contest. This looks like it tastes fabulous and the photos are mouth-watering, too. Good luck!

denise @ quickies on the dinner table said...

Fantastic pics - that really does look amazing!

sheri... said...

oh my goodness...you posted the recipe without my having to get down on my hands and knees, kiss your feet and beg for it!! i can't wait to try it but i've got to figure out where i can find the cascabel chili...not all of us are as fortunate as you, to live in such a diverse place as ny!

pigpigscorner said...

Love the sound of that rub! yummmm...

biz319 said...

Ha - love the title of your post! Looks delicious!

Velva said...

I think you are going to ace this smackdown. The chicken looks stunning... I would love your jerk spice rub recipe.

Joanne said...

I think with a dish that colorful you're a shoe-in. Nothing says tropical to me like a rainbow on a plate. Well. Maybe except for coconut rice. In which case, you've got your bases covered. Now hit me up with a margarita and I'll be good to go.

Juliana said...

Wow, your bird sure looks so tasty...love it! Such a great combination with coconut rice...yummie!

Barbara said...

Oh yeah. This is looking like a winner to me!
Give with the spicy rub recipe......!!

vanillasugar said...

yeah i wish i had access to a casabel. lucky dog.
love the mango paired w/ the heat, smart man

裕以 said...

Just do it!.......................................................

bunkycooks said...

I just worked my way thru the flippin FB emails to get to your flippin chicken! Now I want to have some. When will you share???

OysterCulture said...

Love jerked chicken, the flippen' bird makes my dinner. This recipe looks absolutely awesome. I love trying all the different rubs and yours looks like a winner, but to tantalize us with the knowledge that extra sweet and spice rubs exist is just cruel.

Cate O'Malley said...

It looks gorgeous - so many happy pops of color - yum!

tasteofbeirut said...

That chicken sounds to die for doggybloggy; I have never tried anything remotely carribean and now I want to very badly.

Momgateway said...

scrumptious!

Cynthia said...

This is a sure winner!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

Looks like I'm a little late to this party. Your flipping bird is one spicy meatball, I mean chicken. I'm not familiar with the cascabel chili and I've never seen a dried habaneros. Guess I'm behind the times, but I really, really love the relish. I could eat that all by itself.

girlichef said...

Wow Dog...that looks insanely good! That color...I can just taste it!

Sook said...

What a perfect dish! Looks too good to eat! :)

MaryMoh said...

Wow....a lovely meal. I love that burn look of the chicken. Thanks for sharing the rub.

lisaiscooking said...

Good luck! It looks like a winner with those great colors together on the plate.

LaDivaCucina said...

Hi Doggybloggy, I've announced the new theme for the culinary throwdown. Please tell your friends, hope you can participate! Cheers!

Sanura said...

Recipes that includes the ingredients for a spice mix are very much appreciated. Looking for ideas on how to make my own curry spice blend. Looks delicious.

snugs said...

no camera and a torn up kitchen make me very sad...I am missing your postings...

The Blonde Duck said...

I've never had jerk chicken!

Just telling it like it is said...

Hot!

theUngourmet said...

Sweet! I love the vibrant color the fruit brings to this dish! Nice presentation...nice recipe!
