15 ingredients

  1. 2 tsps allspice
  2. 6 chicken drumsticks
  3. 1/2 tsps cinnamon
  4. 2 tsps dried thyme
  5. 3 garlic cloves
  6. 3 green onions
  7. 1/2 tsps ground coriander
  8. 1/2 tsps ground nutmeg
  9. 1 tsp ground pepper
  10. 1/2 tsps kosher salt
  11. 2 tbsps lime juice
  12. 1/4 cups low sodium soy sauce
  13. 4 servings olive oil
  14. 1 peppers
  15. 1 small yellow onion

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor add yellow onion, green onions, Habenero pepper, garlic, soy sauce, lime juice, thyme, allspice, black pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander and salt. Blend just until combined and the onion has broken down.
  2. Drizzle in olive oil to make a thick marinade.
  3. Pour marinade into a large 1 gallon ziptop bag and add chicken. Secure the top of the bag and move the chicken around in the bag to make sure it's completely coated.
  4. Add bag to a bowl or dish and marinade over night or at least 4 hours. {Keeping the bag in a bowl/dish helps keep your fridge clean in case there is a leak in the bag}Once the chicken is done marinading heat your grill till medium heat. Since you are using bone-in chicken you need to cook it long enough to fully cook in the inside meat without burning the outside. Grill for about 30-35 minutes until the outside of the chicken is crisp and the inside is fully cooked.
  5. Serve with a sprinkle of cilantro and wedge of lime if desired.
