You know my guest today from Booty Bay when we joined forces on the assult against the Zandalari. The leader of the Darkspear trolls, Vol’jin.
I am visiting the leaders of the Horde and Alliance asking them what we all want to know.
TGF: Vil.jin, what is your favorite dish?
Vol’jin: Me fadder passed down dis recipe from his fadder, Darkspear Jerk Chicken.
TGF: I don’t see any grills, don’t you grill jerked foods?
Vol’jin: Trolls don’t grill mon, we get baked.
TGF: Sounds great, where are your ovens?
Vil’jin: Ya mon, we can use dat too.
TGF: Wow! That smells great. I can’t identify the herbs you are using but they are making me light-headed.
Vol’jim: Ya mon. Only da best herb for ma bakin’.
TGF: Tell me, Vol’jin. Do you make Jerk chicken for all Darkspear troll celebrations.
Vol’Jin: Ya mon. It a big hit wit parties on da isle. Lately tho da boys call et Grom Chicken but I tink dat an insult to da chicken.
TGF: Thank you for stopping by The Gamer’s Fridge today Vol’Jin. Readers, you can see complete instructions on how to make Vol’jin’s Darkspear Jerk Chicken below.
TGF: Boy, I am suddenly starving! Lets dig in.
Vol’jin: <chuckle> Ya mon. Me too.
You will need:
1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh squeezed orange juice
4 tablespoons (60 ml) lemon juice
1 teaspoon (15 g) salt
2 teaspoons (30 g) ground black pepper
1 tablespoon (15 g) chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon (15 g) chopped garlic
1 tablespoon (15 g) chopped ginger
1 habanero pepper, seeded and chopped (use gloves)(optional)
1 tablespoon (15 g) curry powder (I used a mix of cumin, paprika, cayenne as a substitute)
1/2 teaspoon (5 g) ground allspice (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger)
1/4 teaspoon (2 g) ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon (2 g) ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (120 ml) vegetable oil
I did not have curry powder so I looked up a substitution and cumin, paprika and cayenne were a suggested replacement. Combine in a dish and stir.
Place chicken into a bag or covered container and pour 3/4 of the marinade over the chicken. Let sit for 4-12 hours. (Mine marinaded for almost 24 hours.)
Put the 1/4 remaining sauce into a container, you will need it later.
After the chicken has set for several hours in the marinade, move the chicken to a baking dish and brush on the remaining 1/4 of the sauce. Discard the marinate the chicken has been soaking in.
Bake at 375 degrees (190 degrees C) for 20-30 minutes. Check after 15 minutes.
