Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Start by roughly chopping the Fresh Thyme (6 sprig), Scallion (3), Garlic (3 clove), Scotch Bonnet Pepper (1), Onion (1), and Fresh Ginger (1 tablespoon).
Step 2
Place all the chopped vegetables into a food processor, Ground Cinnamon (1/4 teaspoon), Ground Nutmeg (1/4 teaspoon), Dark Soy Sauce (1 1/2 tablespoon), Brown Sugar (1 tablespoon), Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/4 teaspoon), Orange Juice (1/4 cup), Distilled White Vinegar (1/4 cup), and Ground Allspice (1 teaspoon).
Step 3
Pulse all the ingredients a few times to break it down, then pulse until reached the desired consistency, depending on if you want a more textured marinade or pureed.
Step 4
In a large bowl pour the marinade all over the Bone-In, Skin-On Chicken Leg (6) and mix thoroughly. Place some cling wrap over the bowl and let it marinate at least 2 hours. If you want to heighten the flavor, make cuts on the chicken with a knife to allow the marinade to penetrate.
Step 5
Place your marinated chicken on a preheated grill over indirect heat. Close the grill and let it cook flipping every so often. Use the leftover marinade to baste the chicken as it cooks.
Step 6
Continue to cook for 1 hour and 10 minutes over low heat, then serve.
