Jerk Style Grilled Chicken

jerk chickenM has made this a few times and I love it! It’s crisp and spicy and means I’m just left with making the side dishes 🙂

You’ll Need:
2 whole chicken legs or 4 bone in, skin on chicken thighs
juice of two limes
2 tbsp of habanero based hot sauce (or less if you’re so inclined)
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp orange juice
2 scallions or green onions, roughly chopped
2 tbsp dried Italian herbs
1 tbsp mustard
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Mix all the ingredients, save the chicken, in a blender. It should be the consistency of a thick tomato sauce, if not add in more lime juice or vinegar. Toss chicken in sauce, let marinate up to an hour if you can swing it. If not, grill on medium low until skin is crispy and chicken cooked thru, about 45 minutes.
