4 each  medium garlic cloves
1 each  medium onions
1 cup  fresh chopped green onion
1 tbsp  ground thyme
1 1/2 tsp  ground allspice
1 cup  ginger root slices
1 cup  salt and pepper
0 3/4 each  roma tomatoes
0.375 cup  Molasses, dark
4 cup  fresh lime juice
4 g  grilled chicken breast strips
  1. The night before you want to cook the chicken, place the garlic, onion, habanero peppers, green onions, thyme, allspice, and ginger into a blender or bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Next, transfer the mixture into a large, non-metallic bowl, and stir in rum, molasses, and lime zest and juice. Place the chicken into the bowl, and turn to coat. Cover, and let marinate for 24 hours.
  3. When ready to cook, preheat your grill for high heat.
  4. Remove the meat from the marinade, and thread it onto skewers. After you have removed all of the chicken, boil the marinade in a small saucepan for at least 3 minutes.
  5. Finally, brush your grate with oil, and arrange skewers on the hot grate. Slowly cook the chicken until slightly charred and cooked through, brushing with the marinade every time you turn the meat.
