17 ingredients

  1. 8 lb chicken
  2. 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
  3. cups fresh thyme leaves
  4. 1 tbsp garlic
  5. 4 tsps ground allspice
  6. 3 tsps ground cinnamon
  7. 3 tsps ground nutmeg
  8. 4 limes
  9. 2 cups low sodium soy sauce
  10. 1/4 cups olive oil
  11. 1 red onion
  12. 3 tbsps red wine vinegar
  13. 8 servings salt and pepper
  14. 1 cup scallions
  15. 2 scotch bonnet chiles
  16. 2 lb tomatoes
  17. 2 white onions

Instructions

  1. Place the limes in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave until the essential oils in the skin are released. These limes will be hot coming from the microwave, so set aside and let them cool before squeezing them.
  2. Using a blender (or a food processor), blend all the dry ingredients; allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, thyme, onions, scallions, peppers (while wearing gloves) together to make a pulp. Return to the limes and squeeze the juice into the blender through the feeder tube. Make sure you use the lime oils which were released by microwaving, as well as the juice you've squeezed. Then add the soy sauce through the feeder tube.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Place the chicken pieces and lime skins in a container which you will be able to cover tightly.
  5. Pour the marinade over the chicken and rest in the refrigerator overnight (or a minimum of 4 hours). Keep tightly covered and away from other foods, as it will taint them.
  6. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  7. Roast the chicken in a covered pan for 2 hours. Raise the temperature to 400 degrees F, uncover the chicken, and roast for another 30 minutes. The important thing is that you "check for doneness." When the chicken is done, the flesh will feel firm and the juices will run clear. You can also use an instant-read thermometer which should register an internal temperature of at least 180 degrees F.
  8. To make the tomato salad, mix tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, red onion, basil in a mixing bowl. Toss gently and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Serve at room temperature family style.
