“My husband is crazy about hot sauce and I'm not,” writes Lynn Davis of St. Louis Park, Minnesota. “But to my surprise, I absolutely loved this chicken!”

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
  • 4 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight. Transfer remaining marinade to a small bowl; cover and refrigerate for basting.
  3. Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 4-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.

    I make this recipe about once a month. I like to use it on chicken wings.
