Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Serves 8

The marinade for this flavorful chicken comes together quickly in a blender or processor. While the chicken marinates, you have time to make salads and other accompaniments for the meal. You'll want to make this no-fuss dish a regular feature at your summer cookouts. Grilled scallions make an appropriate accompaniment, tying one of the marinade components back to the finished dish.
