Smoky Cola Jerk Chicken with Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes


Prepared jerk chicken sauce combined with Pepsi makes a tangy and easy marinade for chicken thighs. Bake chicken and veggies all on one baking sheet for an easy one-pan meal.

What You Need

  • 1 cup Pepsi Cola
  • 1/3 cup prepared jerk chicken sauce (mild or hot)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 lb fingerling potatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 container (14 oz) Sabr


  1. Combine Pepsi, jerk chicken sauce and garlic in resealable plastic bag; add chicken and toss to coat. Refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours. Remove from marinade; reserve remaining marinade.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Toss together Brussels sprouts, potatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange chicken, and Brussels sprouts and potatoes, cut side down, on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake, tossing Brussels sprouts and turning potatoes once, for 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken reaches internal temperature of 165°F, and Brussels sprouts and potatoes are tender.
  4. Preheat broiler to high. In small saucepan set over medium heat, bring reserved marinade to boil; boil until reduced by half. Brush marinade over chicken; broil for 2 minutes.
  5. Arrange chicken, Brussels sprouts and potatoes on platter. Sprinkle with green onions. Serve with salsa.

Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, cilantro or chives if desired.
