"Jamaican" ME CRAZY!!

I don't know about you guys but we are big chicken eaters around here and I'm ALWAYS trying to find new recipes for it. And let me tell ya this one from is a keeper!! I wasn't too sure about the allspice, but all the flavors in this was absolutely wonderful. The chopped jalapeno gave it that little extra "POW". Thumbs up all around my table tonight for this one!

Jamaican-Spiced Chicken Thighs

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 chicken thighs)


  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper ( I didn't add this...we don't like spicy around here.)
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Cooking spray


1. Combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl; add chicken, tossing to coat (**I marinated my chicken overnight). Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes. Turn chicken over; cook 6 minutes or until done. FYI...I ended up grilling my chicken out on the me everything tastes better from the grill!! ;o)
