Step 1

Put bigger chunks like chopped onion, scallion, ginger, garlic, thyme and habanero peppers in the blender and blend well.

Step 2

Add remaining ingredients, then blend to a paste-like consistency.

Step 3

Poke holes in the chicken with a fork or knife, to allow the marinade to penetrate more deeply. Place the chicken in a large bowl, then pour in the marinade. Massage it all over the chicken, making sure to push some up under the skin.

Step 4

Cover the bowl with cling wrap, then place in the refrigerator. Marinate overnight, or start marinating in the morning, then cook in the evening. Remove from refrigerator 30 minute prior to cooking.

Step 5

Grilling method: Preheat grill over medium high heat to 425-450°F. Grill the chicken 8-10 minute per side, or until desired doneness. (see note 2)

Step 6

Baking method: Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake chicken on a lightly oiled sheet pan or baking dish for about 1 hour, or until desired doneness. (see note 2)
