Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered (about 1/2 pound)
  • 8 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 serrano chiles, seeded
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 8 chicken thighs, skinned (about 3 pounds)
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup uncooked jasmine rice
  • 1 (15.75-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled sweet potato
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup Pickapeppa sauce, optional
  • 4 lime wedges

Preparation

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients (thyme through chiles) in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Remove 1/4 cup of the chile mixture and set aside. Add lime juice to food processor; process until smooth.
  2. Arrange chicken in a large shallow dish. Spread lime juice mixture over chicken. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 4 hours.
  3. Preheat broiler.
  4. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 15 minutes on each side or until done.
  5. While chicken broils, prepare rice mixture. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add reserved 1/4 cup chile mixture; saute 2 minutes. Stir in rice. Add broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Stir in sweet potato; cook 10 minutes. Stir in beans; cook 3 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 5 minutes. Drizzle with Pickapeppa sauce, if desired. Garnish with lime wedges.
  6. Note: Made from cane vinegar aged in oak barrels, Pickapeppa sauce is a sweet and sour, mild hot-pepper sauce from Jamaica.
