Caribbean Jerk Chicken
The spirit of Jamaica's popular jerk sauce comes through in this superspicy, fragrant grilled chicken. To punch up the flavor even more, let the marinade sit for an additional 24 hours before adding the meat. To lower the heat, swap out Scotch bonnet chiles (among the world's hottest) for jalapeños.

The jerk marinade can be refrigerated overnight.
Some jerk chicken is so fiery that it will wipe out any wine; Tourondel's is more subtle than that. Nevertheless, it's still intensely spicy, so it goes best with a fruity, not terribly tannic red that won't accentuate its heat. Zinfandel is a good choice: such as one from Sonoma County or the Russian River Valley.
