Jerk Chicken

6 to 8 green onions, diced
1 medium-sized onion, diced
2 to 4 scotch bonnet peppers or jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon whole cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon black peppercorns, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into strips

Place all ingredients except chicken in a food processor fitted
with a metal blade. Process for 10 to 15 seconds at high speed. Place the chicken in a bowl and pour the marinade over it. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours.

Preheat grill until coals are gray to white.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and drain off any excess liquid. Place on the oiled grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is white in the center. Serve the chicken with fried plantains, pumpkin rice with kale, and steamed
okra.

Jerk chicken can also be baked in the oven. Pour the jerk marinade over chicken pieces (4 drum, 4 thigh) and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, turning after 3 hours. Remove the chicken pieces and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until meat pulls easily away from the bone. Bake 30 to 40 minutes if using chicken breast strips.
