Ingredients[edit | edit source]

For 4 servings:

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Combine rum and mustard, and rub all over chicken.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients and rub all over chicken. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, but it is better to marinate overnight.
  3. Place chicken on a greased preheated charcoal grill. Cook, turning constantly until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove and let rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Serve.

Tips, tricks and variations[edit | edit source]

  • The spices always included allspice because the berries of the pimento tree are the source of allspice.
  • When cooking the meat, barbecue is by far the best technique, failing that oven bake. Basting with beer is worth trying.
  • Serve with rice and peas.
