Jamaican chicken

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1¼ pounds White onions -- quartered
½ pounds Scotch bonnet peppers -- cored & quartered
4 ounces Ginger root -- peeled
¼ cup Ground allspice
¼ cup Fresh thyme leaves
3 tablespoons Pepper
1 cup White wine vinegar

Be sure to use gloves when working with the peppers. Pulverize the onions, chiles and ginger in a blender or food processor.

Place a shallow pan of boiling water on the oven floor. Put the chicken on a rack and place in a roasting pan. Roast, basting frequently with the sauce until ¾ cooked (120 on the thermometer), 30 to 45 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oven. Remove the meat thermomter. Preheat a broiler or grill. Baste the chicken with more jerk sauce. Sear the chicken for 5 minutes under a preheated broiler or over a very hot grill. Remove from the heat and let sit for 15 minutes before eating.
