1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeño pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon dark rum
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 garlic cloves, crushed
8 skinned, boned chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds)
3 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled baking potato (about 1 pound)
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2/3 cup evaporated low-fat milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)


Combine first 10 ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth. Combine green onion mixture and chicken in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Place potato in a saucepan, and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until tender; drain. Cool.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and marinade; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; chop. Add chicken, potato, milk, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to pan; cook for 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
