Jerk Chicken Recipe

Jerk Chicken with a celeriac, red pepper, mango & pineapple salad⁣

Bringing some Caribbean spice into your day with this delicious jerk chicken salad. The “Jerk" style of cooking actually refers to poking holes in the meat to allow the spicy marinade to permeate deeper. Our EVOO with its fresh, grassy and pepperiness adds a wonderful flavour and helps to keep the chicken moist. I am serving this with this delicious salad that is full of nutritious veggies and fruit adding a sweetness to contrast the spicy chicken.⁣


  • 6 chicken thighs ⁣
  • Marinade ⁣
  • 1 red onion ⁣
  • 5 spring onions⁣
  • 2 Scotch bonnet chillies, deseeded⁣
  • 3 garlic cloves⁣
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger⁣
  • 1 tbsp fresh turmeric ⁣
  • 1 tsp ground cloves⁣
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon⁣
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg⁣
  • 2 tsp allspice⁣
  • 2 tbsp thyme leaves⁣
  • 120ml soy sauce⁣
  • 120ml apple cider vinegar ⁣
  • juice 1/2 lime ⁣
  • 2 tbsp Governor EVOO⁣

For the salad ⁣
  • 1/2 celeriac, diced⁣
  • 1 sweet potato, diced ⁣
  • 1 red pepper, diced⁣

  • 1 tin black beans ⁣
  • 100g crumbled feta ⁣
  • 100g rocket ⁣
  • sliced almonds⁣

  1. Place all the marinade ingredients into a blender and blitz, reserving 2 tbsp for the dressing. Poke the chicken with a skewer and coat with marinade, leave in the fridge for at least 4 hrs, overnight if possible.⁣
  2. Heat oven to 180C, place celeriac, sweet potato, red pepper in a baking dish, drizzle with EVOO, cook for 30 mins until softened.⁣
  3. Heat 1 tbsp EVOO in a large frying pan to medium, add chicken, leave to cook for 10 mins then turn and cook for another 10 mins.⁣
  4. Whisk remaining marinade with 1 tbsp EVOO. Place the cooked veggies in a bowl with the rest of the salad ingredients and toss to coat. Serve with the chicken.
I have been using The Governor evoo for 5 months now with my 7 year old daughter who is on the spectrum, since using it I have seen an increased calmness in her and her ability to sit still has improved. I put this down to it being the early harvest and having high polyphenols which help lower inflammation….. based on current research I believe most people would benefit from a daily dose of what I call liquid gold
I started using this oil 3 months ago and am noticing the significant health benefits especially in my joints!Would highly recommend it as it tastes great and I don't even like olives!!!!

It really is the Governor of olive oil!!!

I consider the Governor one of the best high phenolic oils Greece produces and always include in my tastings. Cannot think of a more caring and beautiful gift to yourself or a loved one!

This is the best olive oil we have ever had, it's far superior than any other we have tried, we won't be buying any other. We are on our 2nd bottle now and the added health benefits makes it even more appealing and the service is first class.

I have bought many Extra Virgin Olive Oils from all over the world and IMHO the Governor Premium is the best of them all.......hands down.Everything from ordering, packaging and of course the quality is exceptional. Wonderful health benefits with this Olive Oil.

The Governor has been so far studied for...

The polyphenols in the Governor EVOO are measured by NMR - Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. NMR is very expensive to use but it is proven to be the most accurate way for producers to identify their olive oil as high phenolic olive oil.

The oleocanthal concentration in EVOO can vary considerably. This is due to several factors, including the variety of olive, geographical location of the olive trees, olive maturity when pressing, cultivation and production techniques.

Oleocanthal is the most important health-promoting molecule in extra virgin olive oil,
and The Governor contains one of the highest concentrations of Oleocanthal ever recorded.

Oleocanthal, a natural compound found in extra virgin olive oil, has been gaining attention for its numerous health benefits. Extra virgin olive oil containing the highest levels of oleocanthal is considered to be particularly beneficial for overall well-being.

Studies have shown that oleocanthal possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, similar to ibuprofen but without the side effects. This makes it a valuable component in promoting heart health and reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

Incorporating extra virgin olive oil rich in oleocanthal into your diet not only adds flavour to your dishes but also contributes to your overall health. Its potential to reduce inflammation and support brain function makes it a valuable addition to a balanced diet.

Experience the superior quality and purity that only The Governor can provide - your path to a healthier tomorrow starts now.
