  • 1 lb boneless chicken thighs or breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons jerk seasoning
  • 1/2 medium pineapple, cut into triangles
  • 2 tablespoons coconut rum or rum, if desired

Step 1

Heat gas or charcoal grill.

2. Place large sheet of heavy-duty foil or double layer of regular foil on work surface. Rub foil with a little olive oil.

3. Place chicken in center of foil. Drizzle with olive oil; sprinkle with jerk seasoning. Scatter pineapple wedges around chicken. Pour over rum.

4. Bring short ends of foil together, and fold twice to seal; fold in sides to seal, leaving room for steam.

5. Place packets on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut (at least 165°F), turning chicken once. Cooking time will depend on size of chicken.
