Jamaican Jerk Chicken Skewers

Yield: 12 servings




Combine all ingredients except the chicken, Plowboys BBQ Jerk Seasoning and pineapple juice in a food processor and pulse until broken down, but still contains small chunks of texture.


Combine the jerk marinade/sauce and chicken in a bowl. Toss to coat. Marinate 8 hours (or overnight).


Build a hot charcoal fire in your Primo Oval Large Ceramic Grill.


Remove the chicken from the marinade. Slice the thighs in half lengthwise to create long strips of chicken thighs. Thread the meat onto flat bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water for at least 30 minutes. Season the skewered chicken with Plowboys BBQ Jerk Seasoning.


Grill over direct heat until lightly charred on all sides. Move to indirect heat, if needed.

Baste the chicken with the pineapple juice and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 175ºF, glazing occasionally.
