This is a delicious, spicy way to serve chicken. I like to make a tropical salsa (like avocado, mango, jalapeno) to pass along with it.

4 cups green onion - sliced
1/4 cup fresh thyme leaves
3 tablespoons ginger - peeled and grated
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon ground coriander
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons allspice
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
5 cloves garlic - halved
3 bay leaves
1 Scotch Bonnet Peppers - seeded
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast halves without skin

For the Rub

In a food processor fitted with knife blade, process all the ingredients until a thick paste is formed.

For the Chicken

Place chicken breasts in a shallow dish. Spread jerk rub all over both sides of chicken, reserving about a 1/4 cup.

Cover and marinate chicken in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

To Grill

Prepare outdoor barbecue. Place chicken breasts on grill. Cook 10 minutes on each side (or until tender & no longer pink in the middle), basting occasionally with leftover jerk rub.
