    Did you ever find a recipe?

    In reading the ingredients, with only one jalapeno -- this one would be mild. And, you can remove the one Jal and it will be a 0 on the Hot-o-meter! See if this is what you're looking for... its just a copy/paste from a reputable site I visit on occasion.

    • 3 pounds chicken, cut into serving pieces, or use equal weight of legs and thighs
    • 1 onion
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 1 jalapeño chile, seeded, or 1 teaspoon dried chile flakes
    • 2 teaspoons allspice
    • 2 teaspoons black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 3 tablespoons lime juice
    • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

    Prep Time
    15 minutes
    Cook Time45 minutes
    Total Time

    Container: grill
    Serving Description: 1/4 chicken

    • The suggested amounts provide a fairly mild flavored recipe; if desired, adjust to taste.
    • In a food processor, mix all ingedients except chicken and process into a paste. Smear this all over the chicken pieces, put the chicken into a plastic bag and refrigerate from 2 to 24 hours.
    • To cook, remove chicken from refrigerator while grill heats. Grill medium-hot, until chicken is browned on all sides (10 - 15 minutes). When nicely browned, reduce heat (gas) or rake coals to one side (charcoal), cover, and continue to cook, turning as needed to prevent burning, until done (20 - 30 minutes).
    • TIP: Can also be cooked in an oven: preheat to 400°F, put chicken on a rack in a shallow pan, and roast until brown and tender, 30 - 40 minutes.
