Jerk Chicken

Apparently, I'm on a spicy food kick right now. I got some chicken the last time I was at the store and wasn't sure what to do with it. Now that it isn't raining every day, I guess doing something on the grill is starting to seem like what I wanted to do. Also, I had some Red Stripe beer in the fridge, so what else would one make?

- 1 chicken, cut up into pieces

Grind up:
- 4 thai bird chilies
- 1/2 onion
- 6 garlic cloves
- 2 T oregano
- 2 T basil
- 4-5 whole allspice berries
- salt, pepper
- lime juice
- 1 T oil
into as smooth of a paste as you can get. Marinade chicken in the mixture for at least an hour. Grill over medium heat until cooked to your liking.
