Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 chicken breasts skinned (2 lb/1kg total)
  • 4 chicken legs skinned (2 lb/1kg total)
  • 2 tablespoons dark or amber rum
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice

Method

In small bowl, combine thyme, half of the butter, the garlic, paprika, allspice, salt, cayenne and cinnamon. Rub spice mixture all over chicken; let stand for 20 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

In small bowl, combine remaining butter with rum. Place chicken, bone side down, on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, brushing once with half of the rum mixture, for 25 minutes.

Turn and brush with remaining rum mixture; grill, covered, until breast is no longer pink inside and/or juices run clear when leg is pierced, about 20 minutes.
