How to make it
- Seed and finely chop habanero peppers (wear gloves).
- Trim chicken of fat.
- In a large bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, allspice, bay leaves, cinnamon, nutmeg, thyme, pepper, and salt. With a wire whisk, slowly add the olive oil, soy sauce, vinegar, orange juice, and lime juice.
- Add the Scotch Bonnet pepper, onion, green onions, and mix well.
- Add the chicken breasts, cover and marinate for at least 1 hour, longer if possible, but NOT overnight.
- Cook the breasts on the grill until thoroughly cooked. The marinade can be made into a sauce by reducing it on the stove top and adding about 2 teaspoons of cornstarch mixed in a quarter cup of water. Warning: this sauce sneaks up on you... don't eat too quickly!
- I like this served on coconut rice with black beans.
