Recipe by Tieghan Gerard


lb boneless chicken thighs or breasts
tablespoons olive oil
tablespoons jerk seasoning
medium pineapple, cut into triangles
tablespoons coconut rum or rum, if desired
Chopped fresh cilantro and lime wedges, as desired


  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill.
  • 2 Place large sheet of heavy-duty foil or double layer of regular foil on work surface. Rub foil with a little olive oil.
  • 3 Place chicken in center of foil. Drizzle with olive oil; sprinkle with jerk seasoning. Scatter pineapple wedges around chicken. Pour over rum.
  • 4 Bring short ends of foil together, and fold twice to seal; fold in sides to seal, leaving room for steam.
  • 5 Place packets on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut (at least 165°F), turning chicken once. Cooking time will depend on size of chicken.
