Home | Recipes | Appetizers | Jamaican Jerk Chicken Skewers



3 large shallots, minced
3 large garlic cloves, minced
1 inch ginger, root peeled and minced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 tablespoon ground allspice
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs

In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the meat. Set aside.

On a cutting board, slice the chicken thighs into 2 inch chunks. Place the chunks into a large resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade in the plastic bag, seal, and move it all around with your hands, to ensure that the meat is completely covered. Refrigerate overnight.

To assemble the skewers, soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. Place chicken on skewers. Preheat a grill to medium heat, and grill until meat is cooked through (about 8 minutes in a covered grill, turning once). Serve immediately.
