To jut means to stick out, protrude or project. A cliff that overhangs the beach below can be described as jutting; in fact if you think of climbing a cliff, the bits of rock or stone that stick out enough for you to put your feet on them, can also be said to jut out.

A "jutting chin" is a prominent chin that sticks out (like the old Desperate Dan cartoons!)

Occasionally the word is used as a noun; in this case a jut is a protruding piece of rock etc. (So you could put your feet on a jut.)
