Jamaica Me Crazy Jerk Chicken

I made this dish once for a ladies night that I had and it was a big success! I am not sure which was hotter my chicken or my ladies! Either way it was a successful night, none the less.  Garnish with lime wedges and minced cilantro. This dish is best served with Frosty glasses of margaritas and a group of spicy friends! 
... Enjoy! 

1 1/2 lbs Chicken pieces
5 chopped green onions ( scallions ) 
1 small onion ( Chopped )
1 tbsp. Garlic ( Minced )
1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flake 
1/2 tsp. coriander
1/2 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Ground Cloves
1/2 tsp. Ground Allspice
1/2 tsp.  Ground Nutmeg
2 tbsp.  Cilantro
1 tbsp Thyme ( minced ) 
2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1 Jalapeno ( Minced / Seeded if you don't like it too spicy ) 

Whisk all ingredients together ( except chicken ) in a mixing bowl. Pour marinade into 1 gal. zip lock bag. Add chicken. coat chicken thoroughly with marinade and let set overnight. Grill chicken on barbecue until cooked or bake in oven at 375, turning frequently. If baked in the oven place in a greased glass dish to help with sticking!
