Having opened up her home to more than 800 foster children over the years, Birdie's house can be quite a busy place – especially at dinner time! But she loves cooking, and her delicious jerk chicken recipe is a great dish to welcome new children into the family (and can easily be multiplied to cater for larger crowds). See method

Feeling inspired? Have a go at making the jerk marinade from scratch. Simply combine 2 tbsp ground allspice, 1 tsp onion granules, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, ½ tsp ground nutmeg, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 tbsp chopped thyme, 8 finely minced garlic cloves, 2 finely chopped Scotch Bonnet or mixed chillies, 2 finely chopped spring onions (including the green tops), 2 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp clear honey, 2 tbsp soft brown sugar, and the juice of half a lime. Marinate and cook the chicken as above.
Finely chop leftover chillies and spring onions and throw into a stir-fry. Add a squeeze of lime juice for a bit of added zing!
