Traditional "jerk" preparations, a Jamaican specialty, depend on long, slow cooking to let the spicy complexity of the seasoning mixture permeate the meat. Our version cooks quickly on the grill or under the broiler, relying instead on extended marinating to flavor the chicken.

Ingredients

MARINADE

1/2
cup chopped onion
1/3
cup firmly packed brown sugar
2
jalapeño chiles, seeded, chopped
2
garlic cloves, minced
1
tablespoon apple pie spice
1/2
cup red wine vinegar
1/3
cup olive oil
1
teaspoon hot pepper sauce
