Jerk Chicken

6 to 8 green onions, diced
1 medium-sized onion, diced
2 to 4 scotch bonnet peppers or jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon whole cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon black peppercorns, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into strips

Place all ingredients except chicken in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process for 10 to 15 seconds at high speed. Place the chicken in a bowl and pour the marinade over it. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours.

Preheat grill until coals are gray to white.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and drain off any excess liquid. Place on the oiled grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is white in the center. Serve the chicken with fried plantains, pumpkin rice with kale, and steamed okra.
