Oh, how I love this recipe!! It is so yummy- anytime of year, but especially on a hot summer day. Charbroiled, some fresh pineapple and a tasty beverage. Ya mon!
When you see the list of spices in this recipe, you will know why it is so flavorful and good.
I sometimes put together a quick batch of white rice- instant, cooked with half the water and half coconut milk. Toss in some diced red pepper, and you will thank me! ;)
We grilled some pineapple slices for this recipe. Also amazing as a side dish to the chicken.
1 tsp grated lime rind
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 T ground allspice
1 T brown sugar
1-2 T finely chopped jalapeno pepper
2 T olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion

Combine first 12 ingredients in a blender; process until well blended. Pour mixture into a large heavy duty Ziploc bag; add onion and chicken. Seal bag; marinate in refrigerator 1-2 hours, turning bag occasionally.
Prepare grill. Remove chicken from bag, discard marinade. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill chicken, covered, 5 minutes on each side or until done. Garnish with lime slices.
