Jamaican Jerk Chicken

1. In a food processor (or blender), combine all ingredients except the chicken. Pulse until combined.

2. Place the chicken breasts in a glass bowl and top with the jerk mixture. Make sure the chicken is completely coated with the seasoning. Cover and marinate overnight or for several hours.

3. Heat a heavy 10- or 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Arrange the chicken breasts in the pan and sauté for 5-10 minutes on each side until chicken is thoroughly cooked. To grill: place over medium heat until the chicken is cooked through, 8-10 minutes, turning once.
