If using a whole chicken, cut in half (see notes).
Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice over the chicken and rub in.
In a food processor, combine all remaining ingredients and process until it forms a paste.
Rub the jerk seasoning paste over the chicken halves.
Marinate in the refrigerator for at least a few hours or overnight if you can.
After the chicken is done marinating, preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place the chicken in a large roasting dish and place in oven.
Roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until chicken is cooked through.
Remove the chicken from the oven and let rest 10 minutes.
Remove from the bone and serve with vegetables.
There are a couple ways to halve a chicken: you can have the butcher do it for you or you can do it yourself with a sharp knife; just cut lengthwise through the middle of the breast leaving a leg on each side.I recommend serving this jerk chicken with roasted squash and apples:
