For Chicken:

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1.5 -2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon dried jerk seasoning blend
  • 2 tablespoons butter

For sauce:

  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried jerk seasoning blend
  • 1 small clove garlic minced
  • 1 pinch finely diced habanero pepper seeds removed (or more if you like spicy)


  • Melt butter in skillet over medium high heat (closer to high)
  • Season both sides of chicken with a little seasoning and place in hot pan
  • Sear on each side for 2-3 minutes until lightly browned
  • Transfer to slow cooker
  • In small bowl whisk together sauce ingredients
  • Pour over chicken
  • Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 until chicken is fully cooked


I cooked this on high in my 3.5 quart slow cooker for 3 ½ hours
Be very careful when dicing habanero not to get juices on your skin (wear gloves if needed). It is very spicy so use only a little pinch unless you enjoy spicier flavors.
