  • 3 lbs boneless chicken breast skinless
  • 2 limes juice of
  • 2 tbsp ground thyme
  • 1 tbsp ground rosemary
  • 1 tbsp ground allspice
  • 2 inches fresh peeled ginger 2 inch section fresh ginger
  • 1.5 tbsp pink salt
  • 1.5 tsp onion powder
  • 1.5 tsp black pepper
  • 1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes or more, to taste
  • 12 bay leaves finely crumbled

  • Put chicken breast and juice from 2 limes in zip lock bag then set aside
  • Combine all other ingredients (everything but chicken & lime juice) in small mixing bowl and mix well
  • Coat chicken with dry seasoning/spice mixture (The idea here is to get as much as possible to stick to the chicken)
  • Refrigerate for 3 - 24 hours, then remove from refrigerator and allow to come to near room temperature
  • Grill chicken over hot direct fire, like outdoor BBQ (Don't worry about the black, it's supposed to be there. About 30-40% of the outside of the meat should end up black, but it will not be burned or bitter)
  • Once seared, remove to the indirect heat area of the grill and cook to 165* internal temperature
