Jerk-Style Chicken

1 teaspoon grated lime rind
1/4 c. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. ground all spice
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1-2 Tbsp finely chopped jalapeno pepper 

(I used a very hot red chili pepper)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme  

(I used fresh thyme)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 c. chopped onion 

(I used green onions)
6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 1 lb) 

(I used bone in chicken legs with thighs)
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking Spray


Combine first 12 ingredients in a blender, process until well blended. pour mixture into a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag, add onion and chicken. Seal bag; marinate in fridge 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. Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 thighs or 1 breast half).
I know there are like a million ingredients, but trust me, this is worth opening all those spice containers, and it really is a fast marinade to make and SO DELICIOUS!!!
