Jamaican Jerked Chicken

This recipe should add a dash of spice to your life:
25g Allspice Berries - 5 cm stick of Cinnamon - 1 teaspoon freshly grated Nutmeg -1 red chilli, seeded and chopped - 4 spring onions thinly sliced - 1 Bay Leaf crumbled -Sea Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper - 1 Tablespoon dark Rum - 6 chicken pieces
To make the seasoning, pound all the ingredients (other than the chicken) to a thick paste in a pestle and mortar or in a food processor. Slash the chicken pieces deeply on the skin side and rub the paste all over them. Cover, and leave in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours. Roast, grill or braai the chicken till cooked - approx. 20 minutes. Serve with a salad and, for those not dieting, rice. You could make a good salsa to go with this, using fresh pineapple, tomatoes, spring onions and avocado
