Scotch bonnet chiles, chopped (wear gloves)
ground black pepper
ground cinnamon, or more to taste
ground nutmeg, or more to taste
ground ginger, or more to taste
bone-in chicken breast halves with skin
Amazing flavor - just the right mix of sweet and spicy. I used serrano peppers since I couldn't find scotch bonnets. Also used 2 onions instead of 3. Marinated 3 pounds of thighs for 2 days and grilled. My wife and I both loved it and will definitely be cooking this again.
This was good. I made it with boneless, skinless chicken breasts, marinated it overnight and grilled it on a grill pan on top of the stove, I left out the peppers. It had a good flavor but I think it would taste better with bone-in chicken with skin on the grill. I might try that next time.
This is a great recipe, I grilled chicken thighs, then cut the meat off the bone and served over rice. My neighbor liked it so much she sent over chicken for me to "jerk"!!
