  Olive oil 3 Tablespoon
  White wine vinegar 3 Tablespoon
  Orange juice 3 Tablespoon
  Lime juice 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Finely chopped scallion greens 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm)
  Scotch bonnet pepper/Jalapeno pepper To Taste
  Dried thyme 1 Teaspoon
  Dried sage leaf 1 Teaspoon
  Ground allspice 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chicken 3 1⁄2 Pound

1. In a large shallow dish, combine all ingredients except chicken. Add chicken and turn to coat with marinade. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 8 hours.
2. Prepare a medium-hot barbecue fire or preheat a gas grill. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Grill, turning and basting with reserved marinade occasionally, until richly browned and juices run clear when pricked, 30 to 40 minutes. (Stop basting at least 5 minutes before chicken is done.) White meat will take less time than dark meat.
