MARINADE

1 tsp
ground allspice
1 tsp
cinnamon
1 tsp
thyme
1/2 tsp
nutmeg
2 Tbsp
granulated sugar
2 clove
garlic, crushed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine all the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Using a fork, mash them together well to make a thick paste

(Alternate: you may puree in a food processor)

Lay the chicken pieces on a cutting board and make several lengthwise slits in the flesh. Rub the seasoning all over the chicken and into the slits

Place the chicken pieces and marinade in a sealed Ziploc plastic bag and marinate overnight in the fridge
2
When ready to cook, shake off any excess seasoning from the chicken.

Brush with oil and place on a baking sheet (or on a barbecue grill if barbecuing)

If broiling, cook under a preheated broiler about 6” from flame for about 30 minutes turning often, until juice runs clear when you pierce the chicken.

If barbecuing, cook over preheated coals for 30 minutes turning often until juices run clear when chicken is pricked.
