This marinade is perfect for chicken. Marinate 1 day, covered and chilled.

 2 cups chopped green onions
 1/4 cup lime juice
 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
 1 tablespoon brown sugar
 1 tablespoon ground allspice
 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 3 Scotch bonnet chiles* or habaneros, seeded and minced
 2 teaspoons kosher salt
Step 1

Pulse all ingredients in a food processor into a loose paste. Put chicken in a 9- by 13-in. nonreactive baking dish and slather with mixture all over and under the skin.

Step 2

*Scotch bonnets, which are similar to habaneros, are extremely hot. We advise wearing rubber gloves when preparing either of them.
