Tips  

To broil chicken, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide.

This dish is a variation on Jamaica's signature jerk pork, in which the meat soaks up a spicy marinade and is then grilled.

Jalapeños are hot green (or red, if they're allowed to ripen on the vine) chile peppers. The same oils that give the pepper its heat can irritate skin, so wear rubber gloves or wash hands thoroughly after preparing.

Chutney, a specialty of India, is a mixture of sweet, spicy and tart ingredients used as a condiment or relish. In this recipe, fresh banana and lime juice add sweetness and zing to purchased chutney.
