3 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Parsley sprigs (optional)
Lime slices (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 12 ingredients in a blender; process until well blended. Pour mixture into a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add onion and chicken. Seal bag; marinate in refrigerator 1 to 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.
Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill chicken, covered, 5 minutes on each side or until done. Garnish with parsley and lime slices, if desired.
Way too tame for us. Nothing a couple of scotch bonnets couldn't fix. And where's the scallions in the marinade? Another easy fix. Made the Island Rice to go with and that was very good as is. This will be a standard summer grill recipe at our house.
This is actually quite good. Not hot, but carries the "essence" of jerk seasoning quite well. Also, cheap, quick, and easy. Would be good for guests. I added some mesquite chips to the grill, which I think helps.
A standard go-to recipe in our house, especially when entertaining and always a hit when entertaining. I usually serve with a spicy black bean salad as a side dish, and I kick up the spice a bit by adding more jalepeno.
