This recipe was originally named Caribbean Jerk Chicken. However it's not a true jerk chicken recipe. With the help of Toni who was kind enough to help me we have come up with a more appropriate name. Hope you enjoy it.

This is delicious! I doubled the amount of marinade ingredients and boiled it after removing the chicken, and stirred it into cooked white rice. The chicken was juicy and had just enough spice. I am going to try the marinade on a pork loin, too! And this summer, will grill the chicken. Thanks, MG!

I prepared this dish using chicken thighs as a quick no fuss dish. Not sure how to rate this as I did enjoy it as a meal. The chicken was moist and tender, with the high heat and short cooking time sealing in the juices and marinade. The flavors were also good, a wee bit spicy with nice accents from the ginger and allspice. Next time, I would consider doubling up on the spices to make the flavors a little more assertive. A definite keeper.
