These are chicken thighs I marinaded in jerk chicken marinade. I was watching Nigella Lawson make some marinade and thought I could do that. So I did. I did not follow Nigella's recipe because I had other stuff in mind. Yohboh also grilled them beautifully.
This is what I put in the marinade
Scotch Bonnet Peppers
Juice of two lemons and then the lemons themselves.
I put this all in the blender and pureed it. I made yohboh taste it because I am getting old and spicy food can make me unhappy the next day. He approved and said it was not even hot. I did not believe him because my eyes were watering from the peppers.
I poured this over 16 chicken thighs in a plastic bag and put it in the bottom of the fridge for a few days. It took two bags. I like to use a bread bag, tie it in a knot, then put it in a plastic tub and put a lid on it. Then when yohboh grills it, it comes directly out of the plastic bag and onto the grill. Yohboh grilled these with charcoal.
Were they spicy?
Yes but the long slow marinade made them pleasant. It was a bit spicy on the lips but not adrenaline rushingly so.
I served this with beans and rice and a cucumber tomato onion salad with dill.

I have a well developed sense of humor and a poorly developed sense of spacial relations.
I share too much, which is why I need to blog to edit before I over share with people how often I poop and how I saw my first gray hair at 24 AND IT WAS NOT ON MY HEAD.
I had a child on February 2007 I had another child in October of 2011. My life has not been the same. It has gotten a lot better.
