Let's get grilling

1 Toss all of the marinade ingredients into a food processor and pulse several times. With a sharp knife, poke a number of holes in each of the chicken thighs and place the marinade and chicken into a large plastic bag, pushing all the air out and securely sealing the bag. Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or as long as overnight to marinate.
2 Remove chicken from marinade, reshape into original thigh shape and secure with toothpick. Prepare a grill for cooking and place each thigh directly over the hot charcoals at 425°F. Grill over high heat for about 8 minutes and then turn each thigh over and grill for another 6–8 minutes on the other side or until done.
3 For the pineapple, cut off the top and then core and peel the pineapple. Then slice into rings, about ½-inch thick. Place on grill over high heat and grill at the same time you cook the chicken. Grill for about 3 minutes on each side and serve warm with the jerk thighs.
