Very flavourful recipe. I've served this to more than 20 people and only 1 didn't like it. The scotch bonnet peppers are very hot, hotter if you leave the seeds in. You can use jalapeños if you don't like their taste.
- 2 tablespoons ground allspice
- 2 tablespoons dried thyme
- 3 teaspoons chili flakes
- 3 teaspoons ground pepper
- 3 teaspoons ground sage
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 3 tablespoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 1⁄2 cups chopped onions
- 1 -2 scotch bonnet pepper
- 12 single boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Combine dry ingredients and Slowly whisk in oil, soy sauce, orange and lime juices.
- Stir in onions and peppers - Add chicken and marinade for 12 to 24 hours.
- Boil remaining sauce on stovetop and use as basting sauce on BBQ Sauce can also be used over rice and lintel mix.
- We like to grill the chicken breasts on a charcoal BBQ for extra flavor, but you can also bake them.
I liked this very much-my boyfriend thought this was way too hot and spicy. I will decrease the peppers next time...I served this with white rice. Thanks for the great recipe!
Since I didn't have any rubber gloves to wear while I chopped the scotch pepper, I decided to do the marinade in the food processor. It worked great. I did mix the oil, soy sauce and juices together first then poured it through the feeder tube so it drained slowly into the mixture. I made half of the recipe with one scotch pepper and it was HOT. Good flavor, but a bit too hot for me. Heat factor was fine for DH. Served it with Spicy Sweet Potatoes (#37106) which were also good, but added to the fire in my mouth. Will serve with something cool next time -- I think grilled pineapple would be great with this. **UPDATE** I used the leftover chicken in the Whole Foods Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wraps (#225210) today for lunch and they were very good too.
There is a lot going on in this, so it takes some time to mix up, but it's worth it.
