1/2 Cup minced green onions
1/4 Cup orange juice
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 tablespoons hot pepper
1 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
1 tablespoons soy sauce
1 Clove garlic -- minced
1 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 dash cloves
2 pounds chicken thighs (legs)

Preparation / Directions:

In shallow glass dish, combine onions, orange juice, ginger, hot pepper, lime juice, soy sauce, garlic, allspice, cinnamon and cloves. Add chicken; cover and marinate in refrigerator, turning occasionally, for at least 2 or up to 8 hours. (I marinate in a large ziplock bag and turn it every half hour or so.) Remove chicken from marinade, brush any hot pepper off chicken into the marinade and reserve. Place chicken on greased grill over med-hot coals or at medium setting, turning occasionally, for 15 min. Drizzle with marinade; cook, drizzling with remaining marinade, for 15 to 25 min. longer or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced. Makes 4 servings. (I¹ve been known to bake the chicken in a regular oven. Works well too.)
