Jamaican Jerk Chicken Fingers
2 pounds boneless chicken breast -- cut in strips
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lime juice
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons crushed thyme
1 tablespoon ground red pepper -- plus 1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon black pepper -- plus 1 teaspoon
1 1/2 tablespoons allspice
1 tablespoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
Lay strips in baking dish and pour juice over top. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Sprinkle generously over chicken strips. Marinate 1 hour.
Grill should be medium hot and grate set on highest level. Lay out chicken and grill on both sides 1 hour or until done. Servings depend on how hungry you are and if you can handle the wonderful blend of spices.
